For the life of me I can't understand why people think it is okay to fly RC planes within three miles of an airport without calling the tower. At that point they need to be below 400 feet...that isn't very high up...if you've ever paced it off with your plane on the ground and taken a look you know.
There is a prominent club in the Hampton Roads, VA area that is within three miles of an airport...they fly 40% IMAC planes there, I've had to call the tower every time I show up there to visit...no one has a clue!
Much like shooting a rifle, bow and arrow or driving a car, our RC planes are quite dangerous if mis-used. Some people just don't understand personal responsibility...punish those people, don't create more laws!!!
You don't ban cars because a few people speed...you give the people breaking the law a ticket/fine and move on...
Rant off, I feel better now.
