NEW YORK CITY, NY – Local drone pilot Nick Zaderman admits that he routinely flies his drone in downtown NYC, an area known for strict drone rules and regulations. When asked how many times he’s been caught or fined, he just smiles and stares up at the sky.
In an exclusive interview, Zaderman explains his strategy. “I just get up there, take my shot, and come right back down. Before anyone knows what’s going on, I’m on my way out.”
New York City parks in particular have been known to give out hefty fines for pilots who fly in their boundaries, but Zaderman has successfully flown in over 20 parks in the city. “I’m pretty sure I hold the record for the most parks at this point.”
