Maybe we should report all crashes to the FAA and the NTSB!
Hell, they want to regulate us? Then let them "enjoy" the full responsibility of monitoring our hobby!

Next, I'll operate my tanks and R/C cars on the highways and roads, and create all sorts of problems! After a few years of that, maybe the government will regulate those toys too! Maybe even force every r/c buggy operator to register their r/c cars and tanks with the DMV

This world is becoming incredibly stupid!
The only really STUPID is what U see in the Mirror ... By the way what is your address in Southern Florida. There whistleblowers out looking to collect the 10% of what a conviction nets the FAA.

Sharing is caring buddy....we usually get a daily report from you either on that issue, or nappy nap time. When the reports are missed, and you sound grumpy....we get concerned.

Along these lines...but the end result...

How do you go from 300 spectators to 16,000 in less than six months?

You move the event to an open stadium? Is this outdoors? Will the FAA registration checks slow the event down?

Nope to O'l to get HOT. Besides they are sort of ARROGANT A wholes. Ya know better than every one else. Sorta like Pattern, Imac,Flyers and scale Builders that like to rub your nose in their SCHEIT.

What might get Me luke Warm if someone had a big B-52H model with a Hound Dog under each wing. Sorta like Mac Hogers and jis B-29 and the X1. Problem with his set up is the Full Scale X1 was carried in a special Bom Bay area.

Take 300 people all hot and bothered and lathered up on quads and nature takes over...usually takes 9 months to see results though. The people are impatient I guess?

What! No Way, it was "Sunday Sunday Sunday at US 30 Drag Strip". I know I used to stand Up, Lean against the wall, at the bar In My favorite Tavern (The Schmidt House) Stand cause I kept falling of the stool. Then by 3 or 4 in the after noon, from 10 am cause that's the earliest they opened. If I could sill stand, stand at the end of the bar I'd Yell Sunday Sunday Sunday at US 30 Drag Strip ... Just like on the radio commercial, Man a DRUNK is an obnoxious A-whole, unless it's Your self then he a pretty funny guy.

Man how the heck can someone remember all the Stupid Scheit the did 40, 50 years ago and then can't remember it time to SSS. OOOPs just checked Weather Underground and the

Just for Porica83:
I worked on these for 3 years, 3 months, 3 weeks, 3 days & a wake up.
!3:40pm 16 May '65 to 11:32am9 Sept '68 But who was counting.

Historical Snapshot


The Hound Dog, originally designated B-77, was redesignated GAM-77A and then became the AGM-28B-C. North American Aviation designed the missile so that two could be carried on specially modified B-52s, one beneath each wing. The navigation systems of the B-52 and the GAM-77 were integrated so that the B-52 navigator could cross-check data with the automated system in the Hound Dogs.
Named after a hit song by Elvis Presley, the AGM-28 Hound Dogs were air-launched supersonic missiles designed to destroy heavily defended ground targets. The Hound Dog missile program began on March 15, 1956, when the U.S. Air Force issued a requirement for an air-to-surface missile to be carried on the B-52 bomber. North American won the contract on Oct. 16, 1958, and delivered the first production model to Gen. Thomas S. Power, commander in chief of the Strategic Air Command (SAC), on Dec. 21, 1959, in a ceremony at North American's Downey, Calif., plant.
The first launch of the missile from a B-52 took place in April 1959. By the end of 1959, the Air Force had approved 29 B-52 squadrons to be equipped with Hound Dog missiles.
No AGM-28s were ever used in combat, but on a typical mission, an AGM-28 would be launched at an altitude of 45,000 feet (13,700 meters), climb to more than 56,000 feet (17,068 meters), cruise to the target area and then dive to the target. The missile allowed standoff launches hundreds of miles from the target, reducing risk to the launch aircraft.
In 1960, the SAC developed a method for using the missiles’ jet engines to provide extra power for the B-52 carrier in flight or during takeoff. The missiles could then be refueled in flight from the bomber's fuel tanks.
The AGM-28B, incorporating an improved guidance system and with greater range, first flew in May 1961. Before production ended in 1963, almost 700 AGM-28s were built. The last AGM-28s were removed from service in 1975 and scrapped three years later.

A week or two I spoke with a couple of R/C Jet flyers from Australia and We got talking about the differences between R/C in Australia. They stated that for $100/year (Australian) about $75 US they get $20 Million of Primary Insurance thru Lloyd's of London.
What say U Rob2160:
Yeah, that is right HD, $100 will get you $20 Million coverage.

Club membership fees are extra, $150 - $250 typical depending on the club.

Those will need different countermeasures. (Like the Drone Killing Laser Cannon)

Seems if your "expecting" 16,000 spectators it would have to be outside.

well guys and gals I guess I wont be flying anymore because I refuse to bow down to this corrupt gov I've been in this hobby for over 50 years I just cant figure why so many are willing to give up their freedoms so easily. the sad part of this whole deal is we didn't have any problems till some idiots with quadcopters felt
that they fly or do what ever they wanted so now we all suffer for it thank for screwing up a once great hobby

Looks great! I hope the AMA looks at this and does a line by line comparison of what they are offering.
