A 10-20 second 4K or Prores clip on shutter stock shakes out from
a hundred up to 4hundo per clip. little by little and every so often
the clips shake out
I love the NYC hustle! If you got a pair of , the 20 second clip game
is great money for a non pro still relatively new to the game.



It’s really not that complicated...

always have line of sight?
If anyone is Listening I’d recommend so! But I’m not jehovah

400 cash for twelve seconds of footage all while maintaining VLOS

Why hide? When Its easier to rent a space above ground with no
access to The Others. If you pay, you can always, play! Building superintendents and doormen show great appreciation for a crispy
New Hundo for access to the roof.
To each his own I guess

I get very confused about what’s allowed and what’s not, I thought you could not fly over buildings and and always have line of sight?
The entire city of New York is a no fly zone. That said...

ALL those shots are illegal....not that I care about COVERT illegal drone operations. I'm all for it! Knock yourself out! Have phun! Impress your friends! But once you PUBLISH these illegal flights and actually lists them "for sale" in a public forum, one goes from "Covert" to "overt" in about 10 seconds. Now you're just ASKING to be arrested...stupid IMHO.

I suggest the OP Googles "Raphael Pirker" and/or "Casey Neistat." They are experts on the caveats of publishing illegal drone activity.

You can fly over buildings! If you read the FAA rules, you may fly at a max of 400', however, within 400' of a structure, you may fly up to 400' over that structure (107.51 Operating Limitations for Small Unmanned Aircraft). And you are correct.... you MUST have the aircraft in view at all times.

§107.51 Operating limitations for small unmanned aircraft.
A remote pilot in command and the person manipulating the flight controls of the small unmanned aircraft system must comply with all of the following operating limitations when operating a small unmanned aircraft system:
(a) The groundspeed of the small unmanned aircraft may not exceed 87 knots (100 miles per hour).
(b) The altitude of the small unmanned aircraft cannot be higher than 400 feet above ground level, unless the small unmanned aircraft:
(1) Is flown within a 400-foot radius of a structure; and
(2) Does not fly higher than 400 feet above the structure's immediate uppermost limit.
(c) The minimum flight visibility, as observed from the location of the control station must be no less than 3 statute miles. For purposes of this section, flight visibility means the average slant distance from the control station at which prominent unlighted objects may be seen and identified by day and prominent lighted objects may be seen and identified by night.
(d) The minimum distance of the small unmanned aircraft from clouds must be no less than:
(1) 500 feet below the cloud; and
(2) 2,000 feet horizontally from the cloud.

§107.31 Visual line of sight aircraft operation.
(a) With vision that is unaided by any device other than corrective lenses, the remote pilot in command, the visual observer (if one is used), and the person manipulating the flight control of the small unmanned aircraft system must be able to see the unmanned aircraft throughout the entire flight in order to:
(1) Know the unmanned aircraft's location;
(2) Determine the unmanned aircraft's attitude, altitude, and direction of flight;
(3) Observe the airspace for other air traffic or hazards; and
(4) Determine that the unmanned aircraft does not endanger the life or property of another.
(b) Throughout the entire flight of the small unmanned aircraft, the ability described in paragraph (a) of this section must be exercised by either:
(1) The remote pilot in command and the person manipulating the flight controls of the small unmanned aircraft system; or
(2) A visual observer.


Hopefully, this helps.

As long as you launch from the river you are alright, use a telephoto to capture closeups of the los prohibited nfs like the statue of liberty
