Clearwater Beach is one of the top beaches in the U.S. And the quality of the hotels and restaurants along it certainly match the natural aspects!

Filmed over two days in June of 2021, this gives you a small glance into how fun it can be. Note that the shots were toward evening on a Saturday and before things kicked up on a Sunday morning... so it was MUCH more crowded and energetic before and after these shots. We were also a bit disappointed that we didn't get the normal magnificent sunsets that are typical out over the Gulf, but there was a pesky tropical depression 100s of miles NW of us that kinda kept the sun out of the picture (so to speak). Regardless, it was the perfect temperature of both air and water for a good time.

Nice beach, but flying over that many people is a no no. If your drone came down there's a good chance of hitting someone. JMOP.

If he is 107 certified, the rules recently changed for flying over people and @ night.
 
§ 107.39 Operation over human beings.
No person may operate a small unmanned aircraft over a human being unless -

(a) That human being is directly participating in the operation of the small unmanned aircraft;

(b) That human being is located under a covered structure or inside a stationary vehicle that can provide reasonable protection from a falling small unmanned aircraft; or

(c) The operation meets the requirements of at least one of the operational categories specified in subpart D of this part.

[Amdt. No. 107-8, 86 FR 4382, Jan. 15, 2021]

Unless you have the waver in subpart D. Not if you just have the 107, correct.
 
Yes, did you read it? You do not have a free ride over a crowd of people such as was on the beach FoxFlight2020 flew over. Under "What Are The Operations Over People Categories", it requires a remote ID, and no blades can be exposed that could lacerate someone in case it fell from the sky. Theres more to it than just having a 107. Maybe FoxFlight2020 had that coming from Omaha to Florida, I don't know. What I do know is you can not just fly over crowds just because you have a 107, that would make no sense at all for the safety of the people that a recreational flyer would be over. The changes that were made still has restrictions.
 
Of course there still are restrictions. The rules have eased, not gone away.
 
You as well! Smooth skies!
