According to DJI's no fly zone website, the stadium is located on the outer edge of the limited height fly zone due to its proximity to Philly International Airport. The stadium is not in the no fly zone which is why he was able to take off. That being said, flying over a semi crowded stadium (Phillies suck and don't draw the crowds they did 5 years ago) is what will potentially land him in trouble with the FAA.How was he even able to take off if he was in class B airspace?
Never let the facts get in the way of a good newspaper story. And they wonder why that business model is circling the drain.The guy was an idiot for doing that.
But the reporter said the police were trying to figure out
where he was standing while flying the Phantom because
by law he had to have been maintaining line of sight.
Incorrect. No such law exists.
