The BBC articles says: "DJI - the Chinese-maker of the Mavic Pro - has also condemned the filming. 'We stand ready to assist national aviation authorities as they investigate a recent wave of photos and videos showing clear and intentional lawbreaking in ways that pose real danger to manned air traffic,' it said in a statement. DJI said its drones came equipped with software that should prevent them flying within five miles (8km) of Sde Dov airport unless the feature had been disabled."

Wow, the guy has owned the drone for only two months, and already flies right next to the landing path of the planes, and right above densely crowded areas. Amazing!

What a tool. Good thing he has been arrested and had his drone and equipment taken off him! Such a nob. Hopefully he finds his way to a prison instead of house arrest for 5 days!

Imagine the interesting conversations he and his new cell mates could have.....

I'm glad they caught this dummy.  I hope the laws there are very strict. IF the Mavic is hacked, I hope they really throw the book at him and make an example of him...

Thanks to those of you that found the link to the actual video. I think it was originally posted here, but I was in a hurry yesterday. once I saw it I absolutely had to share his arrest. I have been flying drones for literally years and would never even think about doing something this dumb.
