    We just have to be more careful the way we fly & where we fly.
    I think certification is not far off.
    There are too many dickheads out there doing stupid stuff (ie going too high for one) and we are all gonna suffer.

    I read that in the Herald and thought
    a. The guy from Otago Uni clearly hasn't seen footage from a phantom fish eye lens.or he wouldn't describe it as intrusive
    b. The guy in Queenstown was a tourist and a clearly a dickhead
    c. The guy in Featherston should have just asked. Most people I have asked have been fascinated by the idea of filming their event from a "drone".

    I was invited to fil the opening of a cycle track at a local primary school. I took the Phantom along and showed the board and also gave them a safety plan. Not flying directly over people, cordoned off take off and landing zone. Panic landing area etc.

    If I want to fly over someones farm I will ask them.

    If want to fly over my local suburb or a sub division I will just ignore the new law as it is silly
