Just so you know, the Bebop is capable of a few hundred -not thousands of- feet of range. It's more of a toy than most commercially available quadcopters, and I seriously doubt they were posing any...

I agree that's pretty dangerous flying, and obviously lousy moderating, but there's bad eggs in any hobby. With the internet of course, it's far easier to find said bad-eggs, even if they are few and...

I know there's been accusations of superiority complexes, but that's fairly uncalled for. I identify as both a "drone guy" and a "modeller", and I'm just as proud of my latest balsa build as I am my...

Hey init4fun!

I agree (to an extent). And unfortunately I think there's a very good chance there's going to be an accident eventually, new regulations or not. I've personally heard an urgent PIREP...

The BLOS side makes the most sense to me, but even that is a pretty large part of the FPV hobby that would be effectively banned. Just like any hobby, it's the few bad eggs that hurt the majority.

It was pretty clear that they are only avoiding UAV's of "specific weight and capabilities", so not everyone. Also pointed out was the registration is free, and is not a licence, so it's not...

Watching intently from up here in Canada.

I don't see an issue with registering model aircraft, but I almost guarantee that this won't affect the traditional R/C crowd. There's no way they can...

The fatal helicopter accident doesn't have much relevance to the drone issue. It was a very experienced pilot flying a traditional heli, although his choice of field wasn't exactly ideal. Obviously...

Well, we know that it will be impossible for the legislators to declare a quad "illegal", while at the same time ignoring an electric park flyer. Either everything gets effected, or nothing does....

Is this even something up for debate?

I have a hard enough time manoeuvring around birds at 105 knots. There's simply no way a hulking airliner can do the same at 200. Passing the responsibility...

In aviation, the right of way goes to the less manoeuvrable aircraft.

Powered aircraft give way to gliders, gliders give way to balloons, etc.

In the case of models and other UAV's, though,...

Interesting post. As you said, be it self or federal regulation, it's still regulation.

Thanks CJ!

I've been pretty quiet as far as modelling goes over the past year or so, and this has been a nice way to get back in the swing of things. Lots of new things to learn, and it's really...

A bus can be used as a weapon. So can a lawnmower. Same with a brick. Hell, even guns can be weapons (believe it or not!).
