For those intending to fly UAS to photograph the 611, please remember to avoid overflying crowds, keep it below 400 AGL, away from structures and more than 5 miles from the nearest airport.
My impression is that a good bit of 611's travels was followed by a helicopter. The one I saw was well under 400, I believe. The last thing we want to see is a drone/copter collision. Hope people are smart. I don't recall hearing of any issues last year.
