Serious accident is probably over billion to one. With some education. No need to ground RC aircraft.

Why did the heli not crash and burn? I thought everybody said they would. Just a nick on the blade. The oil cooler didn't even have a leak.

I would agree with using ADS-B. But not with ID. Why? Because nobody would use that and very few would have it.

I quit posting because nobody was posting except those who were pro restrictions on the hobby and/or anti AMA. Or so it seemed.

Not enough fumes to matter. Are gas engines not allowed? The fumes from gas engines would be more dangerous. Bet someone is getting nitro methane confused with nitro glycerin. Or they assume the...

They have a pic of a recorder. Actually I see they are allowed if on your person. I don't understand that at all.

OK but horseshoes are also not allowed. What's with that? Or maybe that is a magnet? BTW a sophisticated gas engine can look just like a glow engine. Are they allowed? And what is the problem...

I believe the HP .40 is the same bolt size as the OS FSR .40 if that helps. Not sure if the Webra was the same. Though the internals are mostly the same.

It's a .020 TD and have started it several times. The best performance was 17,000 with a 4.5 x 2 Cox prop. May have missed the actual peak so maybe 18,000 or so. The longest run was about a minute...
