I think the current drone laws/guidelines are too strict to say where the technology has grown in the last few years. These toy drones are anything but toys now and are build to high quality standards and the newest ones have multi layers of fail-safes in them that should be accounted for when making these guidelines/laws. Please always fly safe and never push the envelope too far when flying around people, but remember that “guidelines” are not laws and can’t be enforced. The Canadian government has these full set of guidelines laid out for all to clearly see, but actual laws are very hard if not impossible to figure out, so always just use your own judgement. I encourage people to gain a lot of experience in an open space before every flying like me, and gain a full understanding of how long your drone takes to react to controller input, to stop, turn, etc. Always check that your compass is properly calibrated to avoid a crash or fly-away. For those that don’t like the way I fly, or the videos I make, feel free to report me to any authorities you see fit. One thing to keep in mind, especially for my Canadian viewers is never take money for footage as that would be a crime. I have had several people ask to buy footage from me, and I have turned down every offer and told them just to download it from youtube at no charge as I don’t want to lose my hobby pilot status, and it would also make my flying illegal as all the guidelines become law if you are commercial in this hobby.
