    By bad pilots you mean we follow the rules right? Cause I see a lot of bad pilots (Crashalot pilots) at the field.

    Pretty sure that radio communication is not a requirement for sUAV. But no matter if not recreational they were not supposed to be there radio or not. If recreational then they were supposed to be...

    I have had trouble with the Magnum and ASP engines as well. One was because the metal was too soft, the other the metal was too brittle. So quality control is iffy. But I have a couple that had no...

    The airliner was at or near 200 Knots which is likely well over his stall speed. At any rate the approach speed for any airplane is such that you should be able to quickly make a go around and...

    I like the fact that the new TT .46 carb is bolted on, instead of clamped on as most are. That carb appears to have a midrange adjustment. Either that or both the high and low speed needle are on...

    No! Don't put words in my mouth. I only stated that the airline pilot should be trying to avoid the sUAV. Not that he did not have right of way. In the first instance it is unknown if he had...

    It appears HRP will sell direct. No TT parts on the web site yet and only one engine. They may have them but not yet on the web site, I would give them a call.

    I do not see that as an excuse to avoid a mid air. If you miss by one millimeter you miss. Weight has nothing to do with this, as the planes wing areas match the weight. However size does, as...

    They don't say the pilot took any action which is usually reported in a near miss report. Nor the few others in the news. Heck one in Tallahassee was on the news as a near miss, but there was no...

    I do appreciate the limitations of seeing a small object. But this was not a factor as they did see it and reported this. I appreciate the ability of a large airplane maneuvering less so. ...

    The full scale aircraft has the right of way, but it also has the responsibility to see and avoid. When there is a mid air it is, to some extent, the fault of both pilots, not just the one who did...

    If the full scale aircraft moves away from and impending mid air then there are no dead people to mourn. It would not matter who is at fault they would be dead if neither aircraft avoids the other.

    That is not regulation, but soon will be. Still the sUAV pilot should have stayed away from the airliner, but that is not my point. The airliner should also avoid the sUAV. So far they do not seem...

    The drone pilot was likely recreational and thus it was legal to be at 1,000 feet. The rule is see and avoid. So if it was a near miss the airliner was as much at fault. Why did he not move away...
