Interestingly, that is not as bad as the COPPA violations the FTC is starting to hand out to Youtube creators whom they feel have not properly marked there videos as 'for kids' or 'not for kids'. $42,500 for EACH video FTC determines not in compliance. For some creators, that can amount to millions of dollars in fines. Makes those FAA violations seem paltry by comparison.That’s interesting, what Drestin Black’s friend might not realize is that the $1437 fine for violating 107.39 would be imposed on every head he flew over.
Just something for all who fly over people to think about.
My advice to them is Don’t fly over people, and if you do, brush up on your editing skills before you post a video.
