1 pointI concur with @Dave Pitman. We were asked to do a project near an airport and we asked the FAA drone representative here in Denver if we could tether it and avoid the Part 107 requirements and we were told that we could not. We then asked if we put a camera on a pole that is the same height and proximity to the airport (75' AGL) if that would create issues and they said no, we could do that.
1 pointSince when has marketing language ever been misleading or blurred the lines of truthfulness? 😎 A tethered drone is treated the same as a non-tethered drone within the regulation.
