Re: Law in the UK is clearer.
I know I am always pissing on peoples fun but here is a snippet I found regarding the CAA (in the UK) so no hedge hopping for you sadly. Don't take my word for it though as I could be wrong (or the source is, not surprised if they are).
"""An unmanned aircraft must always be flown at least 50m distance away from a person, vehicle, building or structure."""
I do enjoy a little drone action myself but more for the experimental and tinkering at an engineering level.
