  1. Are you allowed to use a drone to film as long as it is not DIRECTLY above any part of the playing field and or spectators ?

    If we would place our drone on a endline not above any part of the playing surface, is that ok?

    • Drone flight is not permitted near the field when game is in play. We are only permitted to fly drone in end zone during pregame.
