    No, sir. It would be best to wait until you're in the eye of the storm ;)

    That's one way to hit 170MPH+ with your quad.

    GL down there....

    Just got an email from the FAA with the following:

    "Unauthorized UAS or drone operations may prevent other aircraft from performing life-saving missions and increase the risk of mid-air collision. Anyone, including hobbyist or recreational fliers, who interferes with disaster response efforts is subject to civil penalties of up to $32,140 per violation and possible criminal prosecution."

    So, I guess we won't know how it flies in the eye.

    Apparently the eye isn't likely to make landfall anyway...
