Although there are many ways to use tethered drones innovatively, some people only attach a tether and leave it alone. By doing this they are still able to avoid regulations set by the FAA. At the same time however, can cause a few issues when flying. If a drone is flying with only a fishing line attached the drone has a chance of tangling with the wire and falling. The best way to avoid these kinds of issues is to either change how the drone flies or the tether itself.
