A hobbyist was casually flying his drone over a public area attempting to capture some footage for some of his video projects when he was abruptly interrupted and basically interrogated by a random man who accused him of using his drone to fly over a park where allegedly; his daughter happened to be practicing soccer at.
The hobbyist remained calmed and collected throughout the argument and using "legal talk” gave the stranger a very much deserved answer.
After the heated discussion the hobbyist…
uploaded this video to youtube and stated: "Model aircraft are not a crime. This is a public field. I was out testing my camera and gimbal settings on my quad and hexacopter.”
"I fly here often, as do many others. It is a safe and wide open area to fly. Look at my other videos for a view of the field.” He also had been involved in model aircraft for 20 years, and was officer in his club, and had taught as a flight instructor. He also said: "Anyone that has flown with me knows I fly in a safe manner.
I made a point to not go anywhere near the other people on the adjacent field. Anyone that has a problem with my flying can come and talk with me about it. So long as they don't imply I am a pedophile it is likely to be a pleasant conversation.”
