    Flying Aerial Camera Footage PART II - Its gone to a whole new level

    I have posted this in the Seadoo section as I am a Doo guy, thought you Yamalog folks would like it ths as its of a Yamaha.

    WOW - A gyrocopter thing that follows you and films you skiing. Awesome.

    Its a chap we ski with, have not had a chance to catch up with him yet about it but WOW.

    Sorry that he rides a Yamalog...



    Edit - Not a gyrocopter after all. Good news is its much cheaper!

    Yea, I already pointed out in another thread? that the FAA has some new regulations they are working on, for remotely piloted vehicles.
    Just as they are getting easier to fly, and much more stable-now the Government has to step in..........
    But, I have told people that IF you plan on flying one of these, to make a profit through the video, you must have a Commercial Rotorcraft License!!

    This only applies to the United States.
    So basically, the FAA has taken the stance that a Commercial operation, even though carried out by a RPV, required you to follow the Federal Air Regulations(FAR's), and to possess the appropriate pilot certificate.

    I believe there was talk, in the NPRM(notice of proposed rule making), that operators of these vehicles, be allowed some "lessor" license, or maybe even just a permit, per commercial use, with demonstration of the pilots abilities before the permit was issued.

    I hope the guy fights the charge.....and I hope they modify the rules, to make it easier for people to operate these RPV's, without all the hassle.

    Guess I need to learn how to fly one now, and rent myself out
