Default Hard and Crash Landings

I film at a lot of shows. Kinda inevitable I'll capture the odd bad or horrific arrival. All repairable but probably with significant effort in some cases.

In light of all the new FAA rules and such I have often wondered what influence videos such as these have had on the FAA and the government in general? The AMA claims a great safety record but videos such as these would suggest otherwise.

I don't get your point.

1. He's in Europe.
2. Crashing a model airplane isn't an indication of a poor safety record, injuries and deaths are, and more people get killed by falling coconuts in a year than have ever been killed by a model airplane. If you're worried about injuries such as prop nicks then you better outlaw lawn mowers.
