Good Morning,
I had been using my Phantom 3 in my work to take photos of roofs on commercial buildings. It was a great solution to the problem of getting roof photos, and with the high res camera, really met the need. Sadly, someone somewhere noticed the shadow of my drone and realized I was using it and went crazy! No drones, oh no, not ever, waaay too much liability to the lenders. Which I do not understand, since if I did crash it, the only liability was to my drone, it certainly wasn't going to make holes in their roof! and there are never any people outside, so no personnel exposure. This was at a time when the hysteria about drones, spying, and the one that crashed into the Space Needle, but still seems an overreaction. Anyone else had a similar experience?
