WOW. what are your rules as far as flying height? Why would he need to scale the bridge when he possibly could have flown the UAV up there? I like that the judge ordered to destroy it. Is that typical there? Wish they would do that here to the dummies that get in trouble.

Looks like this guy went out of his way to draw attention to himself...not real bright.

Alexandru Scutaru, from Northampton, was arrested by police on December 31 after clambering to the top of the bridge tower to capture photographs and video on his GoPro drone, after it failed to fly at the lower level.
It was a GoPro Karma ... maybe they don't fly any more and you have to carry them up high to get aerial photos.
