You are right in all you say and I am sorry for the mishap with your drone. I have responded to Andy9 above and mentioned the reasons for my flight, maybe that will make you judge me a little less negative. Fly safely !Well dispite the great view yes you made yourself look irresponsible and broke rules that we cant
This does make you look bad for drone pilots
What's the purpose of this flight--fun and games,it had no real purpose, remember planes can come out of nowhere, what if it done the worst and wind carry it off somewhere, terminal velocity of a brick be pretty dangerous,,who cares if it was over water,seems you know the rules but flaunt them cause everything is illegal there and no one cares,probably lucky no one report you,lots of eyes on this forum,,
As for flying over houses it does make a few unhappy and always a risk of major like errors that shut your drone off in flight which myself and others have experienced first hand,,my p4 only freefall from 72ft and smashed concrete roof tiles on my own house luckily but goes to show things can go bad..also you not following rules of flight sets bad example since you dont want to give drone pilots a bad name,you have achieved that by showing a flight that breaks all the rules and for the world to see..I'm no drone police and cant tell you what to do but dont put others at risk for your enjoyment, your sort of lucky it autoland and not drift away with high winds that rth cant fight,man be careful ay,,I respect all but yes slight moan at you,sorry for that but your flight shows lot of risk and to get your drone back is a fluke,take care out there ?
