While some of the rules regarding drone flight around the world might seem a little extreme, some make absolute sense. One such law in many countries is that of flying over groups of people. Especially groups of people who aren’t directly involved with the flight.
You might remember one drone pilot who disobeyed this rule a little while ago, and was convicted last month. Charged with reckless endangerment, Paul M. Skinner did manage to escape the maximum allowed penalty. But he’s still been ordered to pay a $500 fine and spend 30 days in jail.
