    Yep, he's a proud member of phantompilots.com. We're trying to get him to see the light.

    He knows right from wrong we can never stop ppl from doing what they what to do. It's never going to happen. On the other hand at-least it's a vary nice video. I Can't deny Paul of that.

    Dang it... The video was taken down. I wanted to see it! The way everyone is talking here you would think he released a chemical weapon via UAV. Sometimes you have to snub your nose at authority to get a good video or make a memory. I haven't seen the video but imagine it's not the end of the world.

    England could impose a total ban on all Drone flying because of this idiot!
    Then you wouldnt say "Nice Video" would you?
    Other countries could follow suit.

    No reason to get your panties in a bunch. It was a nice video.

    If England bans all uav flights because of this one video then it was going to happen anyway. That would be a gross overreaction. As technology like drones become more readily available to the general public, more and more people will do things like this guy did. Finding an acceptable compromise between public safety and public use of beautiful airspace will do far more to keep things in check than banning it all together.

    There are countless things that are "banned" or illegal that are still used by society every day. Banning drones won't solve a thing.

    I didn't say I condoned the flights but as far as I can tell, nobody died or was mamed. I think some people on these forums get bent out of shape far too easily when someone takes a video in a manner not totally consistent with current law. There are far worse things happening every day that could use that scrutiny.

    There are a lot of things that "could" happen in this world. Fear mongering speculation will not help either side of the debate.

    Best way to get rid of these idiots is not to pay them attention and not re-post their videos.

    At the risk of having my comment removed for being off-topic or for being what might be considered of a "personal" nature, I still feel compelled to comment.

    After looking at his profile picture and reading his replies to comments in the other forum, I can only marvel at his casual egotism and extremely self-entitled attitude.

    "Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others. But behind this mask of ultraconfidence lies a fragile self-esteem that's vulnerable to the slightest criticism." - mayoclinic.org
