I hope not. He's just a kid!He almost lost it on top of that building. I was expecting it to lose connection once it landed, with the building blocking connection and the metal messing with the compass. This was done for his own adrenaline rush, nothing more. With the smog, there wasn't much to see.
He looked rather smug at the end, but I won't be surprised Chinese authorities has tracked him down.
It’s not always that smoggy. It was fairly clear sky when I was there. Some of it is humidity I think. But most of China is smoggy unless the winds from Siberia are blowing is what the locals told me.wow thats quite a vid, is it always that smoggy there??? grossssss. wow sure was high to be at critical battery, very cool vid dude
what rules were broken? what are the flying rules in his country? if he landed on the building and couldnt take off again, his mav is gone,pretty sure he knew that going up, iam not familiar with the landing on buildings rules, if i am flying legally and encounter some wind drift and say i cant make it back to home point, if i land on a appartment building roof, instead of crashing to the ground is that considered a "no-no" just wondering, not planning on doing it haha,This is about as idiotic a stunt as I've seen in a long time.
Thanks for nothing.
Hopefully you'll be found and prosecuted for whatever rules you may have broken.
120m altitude limit in China and VLOS only. Not near airports, government/military installations etc. Basically same rules as in the US.what rules were broken? what are the flying rules in his country?
Normally, but not always. After many smoggy trips to Shanghai, I was finally there one time with blue skies. A few locals told me it was the first time they had ever seen blue sky there. Turned out the government had shut down hundreds of factories, and limited traffic in order to clear the air for a G-20 summit in Hangzhou. I took advantage by going to the observation deck at the top of the largest building in the video, the Shanghai Tower. 128 floors. Tallest building in China, and when I was there, the second tallest in in the world. Spectacular view with those rare clear skies. Another odd thing. The building had been open for about a year and the only thing in it was the observation deck. Not a single office was occupied. Not sure if that is still the case.wow thats quite a vid, is it always that smoggy there??? grossssss. wow sure was high to be at critical battery, very cool vid dude
