    doing some arial photography for fun, you know. Did some recording at a tractor pull.

    I didn't know they allow one to fly a drone at events like that. Interesting... I thought about doing that but I thought people would be upset at me for doing so. Plus, the people holding the event, I thought would not be happy about it either. Did you get permission for such a thing?

    One of the relatives of the promoter was doing it at a show. He is a friend of ours, so we started doing it some too. :-)

    I've been playing around with a Mavic Mini and doing a lot of reading, especially the rules around what is considered "hobby" versus "commercial".

    Be careful flying around groups, even with permission. Read up on the
    FAA Part 107 rules and the commercial license requirements and what you
    can do with it.

    Flying is a blast but there are jerks that will try to tell you that you
    are breaking the law. The best defense is to be informed!
