All good fun, of course. Rules are for pussycats, aren't they?

Anyway, what could possibly go wrong?

Tetsuo: its a radio controlled model (unless you believe the guys it flies between are around 30 feet high.
And did they make a tiny little mock-up of Go-pro camera and attached it to the R/C? look again and you see a GoPro cam under the belly on that Robbie.
I don't think so, they skaters lock so big because the super wide angle lens.
stupid move btw to skate helicopter on ice between people. Skidding your helicopter over frozen lake is unpredictable I have actually tried it once.

In the US the 500' rule does not apply to helicopters as long as they do not pose a threat to persons or property. Its a bit open to debate on issues like that, but I think a citation would be possible and certain unless they were all willing participants.

On another note. Go pros use a wide angle lens that really distort things, attach one looking down a 50' longline and it looks like you are 200' up. Its also why those people look tall.

That's why they have the little curved up bits on the front! Skids, self explanatory.
