    Enclosed props for safety & durability

    I had one of those prop cages for Mavic. They use smaller props and significantly reduce performance but there are situations where they may be appropriate, like near tiny tree ("drone magnets") branches.

    Pay for regular ground photos, free drone photos, no P107

    Has nothing to do with exchange of money. If it's for commercial benefit, 107 is needed. Even if a realtor uses a drone for his/her own listings, 107 required.

    Litchi Mission Gone Bad

    Yes the State Farm policy is amazing however they would not renew my policy within the year was over because I had filed a claim. I have my auto policy with them and my homeowners policy with them but they would not renew my personal property insurance that covered my drones.

    Shout out to Marco Polo Recovery System

    I am curious if the obstacle avoidance (dynamic) would have or could have prevented this disaster.

    Question, if this was a P4P, would obstacle avoidance prevented this disaster?

    Flying in New York City

    Please re-read my original post. Yes that's what it says on NYC web site. It is not a "law" it is a "Policy". As you can see from my post, when you re-read it, I first obtained FAA "OK, go ahead and have fun", then called the desk Sgt at local NYPD precinct who knew what he was doing and...

    Flying in New York City

    ATC, as far as I know, controls its airspace. The controlling authority in my case was LGA Tower. If they give a "go ahead and have fun", I am and was comfortable.

    As to near airports, just like OUTSIDE of NYC, you advise the appropriate controlling authority and unless they say otherwise you are good to go. As I did, I would also notify the appropriate NYPD precinct after you get FAA "good to go". I am referring to HOBBYIST not under 107.
