Helicopter Nearly Collides With Drone Off Florida Coast

By

“The Federal Aviation Administration has launched an investigation of a near collision off the Hollywood coast.” –CBS Miami

Not exactly sure what would happen if a drone got caught in the rotors of a full sized helicopter but we almost just found out. This footage taken off the coast of Hollywood, Florida (between Fort Lauderdale and Miami). The FAA has a 400ft heigh limit on drones, with some noted exception, and the drone apprears to be the same height as the Westin Diplomat hotel which stands at 440ft tall.

Moral of the story: As a drone pilot be super fucking careful of your altitude ceiling or simple a flight could end tragically.
