Default R/C plane flying over NYC

Saw this and thought this was pretty cool......Though not too smart considering how low they got over the Brooklyn Bridge, and it was either the Throgs Neck or Whitestone bridge, not to mention the Statue of Liberty and apartment buildings, they could have caused a scare in a post 9-11 NYC. but still a cool video.

That looks like it was done post 9-11 but before summer 09 notice the WTC is not there by the Brooklyn Bridge nor is the start of the Freedom Tower.

Cool vid and it gives thanks to the NYPD at the end, so looks like they had permission to fly where they did.
