Agreed totally and I do believe that these who don't compliance with rules established by the FAA, will soon learn hard when the FBI show up in their house.I live 15 miles west of Mercedes Benz stadium in Atlanta. The air traffic in the area has been unbelievable over the past week. I’ve spotted several aircraft at low altitudes that I know were below 400 feet. There’s a heliport where they do a lot of maintainence/inspections about a mile from me and they have been very busy as well. I also got to watch the Thunderbirds doing maneuvers before their flyover.
When the NOTAM was issued I complied as we all should. I really don’t understand why so many people on this board complain about rules set by the FAA. Do you as a drone operator (I don’t believe you are pilots) really think you are above the law and therefore don’t have to listen to any warnings? Because of reckless behavior of some I think this industry as a whole is suffering dearly. Those of us who are trying to scratch out a living doing drone work are being stifled because of the callous actions of a large number of idiots.
