    I agree. But for the short future I believe Amazon will abandon the drone idea. It's not like they have a warehouse in every city, and the drone transport would only be viable near the warehouses....

    IMO it will take an act of congress to restrict recreational flight below 400 feet. I do not think the airspace congress said the FAA could protect from model airplanes should include newly enacted...

    It's not illegal to shoot a shotgun into the air. You cannot shoot birds out of the air without shooting a shotgun into the air. However, it is illegal to shoot them in most urban areas.

    It appeared to have been in an urban area. Plus it's not clear to me that it was over his house. Sounds like maybe it was over his neighbor's house.

    Supercharging doesn't work well with two strokes because both the exhaust and intake ports are open for most of their periods. So the gas cannot be compressed, or not very well. About all it will...

    Why would they consider it murder when children have been missing till adults? Remember the girls that freed themselves imprisoned in a home for years?

    I agree with all of the above suggestions, but here is an odd one I ran across once. I used to use thin walled very flexible fuel line in the tank from the clunk to the fuel pick up tube. Worked...

    The electronics can be built at home. Autonomous drones were a hobby for about a decade or two. Some have used cell phones for navigation. Banning them will not make them go away.

    The stop action picture seems to show a very large drone, probably 5 feet or so from rotor tip to tip. Not sure what you mean by proportional. The video was fake. The winglet had the name of the...

    I agree but I do not know how that makes a ban more likely. You could require home built drones install a tracking device as well. OK so maybe they won't, but then they could remove a tracking...

    The original gas engines made in the 30's and 40's were cruder than the bottom end of our glow engines. They will hold up fine if you have enough oil, I believe that to be 10% or 1:9 ratio or...
