Illegal Drone Video – Do Not Do This!

Illegal Drone Video – Do Not Do This!

I learned a lot of things the hard way when it comes to drone flying and what is legal or not. When I started, there weren’t all these regulations. Now everything is getting more and more restricted. Know before you go!

    o jeez I had my heart set going therefor holiday with my drone looks like they’re not getting my cash

  3. GODIN1965 on December 29, 2021 at 12:24 pm

    Nathan, I can feel your frustration. Beautiful footage dude! I see all kinds of videos of people breaking the law with their drones and they think it’s cool because they haven’t been caught. Then you read the comments of drone pilots that tell you to ignore the rules and laws and fly where you want. THOSE kinds of people are the reason we have so many restrictive laws and rules! It’s hard to argue the merits of drone usage when the person you’re trying to convince has tons of video of assholes flying drones illegally and irresponsibly and posting them on YouTube for them to use as ammo against us!

    Great video & music. I subscribed to you, please recipricate. Thanks

  6. corpse is cool i guess on December 29, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    It says no drones at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal

  7. David Boe on December 29, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    So ALL of these images were illegal? Is that what this means? Because it’s not at all clear. Do you mean that you shouldn’t have made ANY of these videos? Doesn’t that mean that this video evidence of a crime? Are you in prison?

  8. George Trotter on December 29, 2021 at 12:26 pm

    It’s a great video for those of us with disabilities and CAN’T get out to see the world around us.

  9. Glenn Roberts on December 29, 2021 at 12:27 pm

    May I suggest AirMap the app. It lets you what airspace if any you are currently in. Fly on!!

  10. Nazarettos on December 29, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    Is this Canada? Or CCCP, or maybe Comifornia.???

  11. CC Chodkowski on December 29, 2021 at 12:28 pm

    A lot of people don’t realize that flying the drone at a lower altitude the sound is louder. That attracts attention. The higher you fly it the less you hear it. If you flew you drone 200’ or more above people they wouldn’t even know the drone was there.

    Even though the local cops are not allowed to regulate drones they are making rules up.

  15. D. ` on December 29, 2021 at 12:30 pm

    A Michigan judge has made all local drone ordinances illegal in the state, in his ruling throwing out a ticket issued issued at a park. He ruled only the state law applies which currently only requires drones be operated according to applicable FAA regulations.

    "Illegal Video"
    Me: *Watches Video

  17. Candra DP on December 29, 2021 at 12:31 pm

    Hi Nathan Im watch you video about got a ticket for flying your drone but btw I not understand English well. My question is you got a ticket because the police caught your drone flying or by the video that you upload ?

  18. Bob Rosso on December 29, 2021 at 12:31 pm

    why are these flights "illegal"? Nothing "commercial" about them…..

  19. Anthony Smith on December 29, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    Recievesd a 2.2k fine for my vids here in Australia. This all becomes quite expensive

  20. SUNDAY FUNDAY on December 29, 2021 at 12:32 pm

    I got some footage that will blow y’all away. I Deleigh before the rules and regulations started for drones

  21. Gene Kochanowsky on December 29, 2021 at 12:34 pm

    Maybe I’m wrong but my understanding is that only the FAA controls airspace. As long as you launch or land on a public way you can fly over any park, city, state or national. They may think they can regulate airspace but only the FAA can do that. Now if you fly in an FAA restricted space then you may get fined, but a ticket from a city, state or national park can be contested because they have no jurisdiction.

  24. copykon on December 29, 2021 at 12:36 pm

    I am thankful that I live in a red state where people don’t give a shit what your doing as long as it aint hurting anyone.

  25. hydrantinco on December 29, 2021 at 12:36 pm

  26. HEBER BELLES on December 29, 2021 at 12:37 pm

    Where did you get the music for this video. Its allsome, i love it.

  27. doogerbeck2010 on December 29, 2021 at 12:38 pm

    According to a conversation I had with the FAA these local Laws or rules have no authority. As soon as an object leaves the ground only the FAA has justification over air space. He even stated that there is no legal "law" on the books to prevent anyone from flying over power plants, dams and other strategically important locations or even national parks. When local governments try to take authority over airspace it is called "pre-emption" and is defendable in court if you are willing to take it that far. For more details go to "www.regulations.gov" Here is the catch, it matters where you take off or where (think ground) you are flying it from. If you take off, fly or land on property designated as "no fly" zones such as city parks, national parks, that is where they can get you for breaking their local laws. For DoD airspace there are permanent TFRs in place by the FAA which does ban that airspace from drone us. The same goes for Class B,C,D & E airspace (Be sure to know those rules). In the end, it is up to you if you want to spar with local authorities but as the FAA said, in court you will win but at what cost…..

    How is it illegal?

  29. Brad McGinley on December 29, 2021 at 12:41 pm

    I totally get it, RMA is a wildlife refuge, obviously they don’t want people flying drones there. Cool place for photography though.

  30. J N on December 29, 2021 at 12:42 pm

    FYI as long as its not marked as a wildlife preserve you can fly your drone in parks

  31. Rob Allen on December 29, 2021 at 12:45 pm

    doesnt it have a lot to do if you upload the video? if you keep it for your own use.. how will they know?

  32. Will Viera on December 29, 2021 at 12:47 pm

    I was just there in Denver and Rocky Mountains last week doing a couple of drone videos (learning) and knew about this regulations therefore my videos were very short and basically not that good at all…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K0Ep8BYeVzY ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jd6oDIcGcvg

  33. Bricklayerlz dp on December 29, 2021 at 12:50 pm

    You guys make it so obvious that you’re the flyer. Literally stand in plain site when you could go anywhere.

  34. Brad McGinley on December 29, 2021 at 12:51 pm

    Colorado has a ban on drone flying in Wilderness areas, which are all over the place, but I noticed some of the roads aren’t included as part of the wilderness area, so one could presumably launch and land from a pull out on the road. Just saying.

    Welcome to Communist America

  36. Buenavene on December 29, 2021 at 12:58 pm

    FAA Part 107 certificate holders may fly within restricted airspace. But, you must have a liability/insurance coverage of $5Million.
    Recreational pilots, I say avoid restricted airspace, and stay out of trouble, download B4UFLY app it gives information and map to non/restricted airspace.

  37. Timothy Stark on December 29, 2021 at 1:02 pm

    I did not understand what you says because I am hearing impairment. Please enable subtitles.

  38. Mardokhey Zibrov on December 29, 2021 at 1:02 pm

    All these rule are BULLSHIT I agree with all said…

  39. nodoubtjd111 on December 29, 2021 at 1:04 pm

    Yes, and tromping through there on foot with 40 pounds of camera gear and optics all day is perfectly fine.

  40. Zander Young on December 29, 2021 at 1:05 pm

    Yea Colorado 🤟

  41. America First on December 29, 2021 at 1:07 pm

    I don’t see anything illegal here. smh

  42. T-man on December 29, 2021 at 1:08 pm

  43. Rusty Shackleford on December 29, 2021 at 1:10 pm

    I’m pretty sure that black suv backed into the white car at the beginning of video 6 after you talked to the officer.

  44. Kelly Powell on December 29, 2021 at 1:10 pm

    How many tickets did you get and how did it go down?
    Can they give u a ticket by looking up your info on the remote. They keep track of all that

  45. Emanuel Andrews III on December 29, 2021 at 1:11 pm

    10 secs into the video and I could see what looks like a wildlife reserve or something. Even for fun flights, check Skyvector and plan your flight.

  46. Kefka on December 29, 2021 at 1:12 pm

  48. Sun Of God on December 29, 2021 at 1:12 pm

    Nice music..What’s the name and source of the first music used in these videos?

  49. George Trotter on December 29, 2021 at 1:15 pm

    At the same time, if it were to get dropped by a bird over someone it could kill them

  50. Randy Jose Minaya Rodriguez on December 29, 2021 at 1:15 pm
