Drone photography, including amazing aerial footage, is becoming quite commonplace. But there are still some restricted areas that are off limits entirely to drones.
Yet, as with many of our other stories about drones, often the pilot is unaware of these restrictions or doesn’t care.
And these incidents sometimes make the news and prompt calls for further government regulation of this largely unregulated area.
For some people, though, the footage is worth it no matter the consequences and for one photographer and drone enthusiast from New Zealand, the epic video he captured made his brief arrest in Beijing time well spent.
