I've got a feeling the FAA here in the US would never go for that LOL.

We had a contractor come in last week with a phantom to run a thin line up 800', small line to pull a bigger line that would then pull up the power line. Got over the crest, lost connection, operator let it return to home. About 200' from landing coming straight down it sucked the thin line into one of its props. 200' free fall, landed right at its 'home' point
