    Thanks Bully. I read this article, and it too, shows potential for making money. As quad security around airports.

    Special rule for model aircraft Specifically prohibits the FAA from this action.

    ************************

    1st Amendment specifically prohibits ANY restrictions or limitations on WEAPON ownership (that would include everything from a spitball to a battleship)

    80 million gun owners (NRA members or not) did not use an illegal gun to commit a crime today...

    The guy with the illegally purchased and unregistered gun did.

    so its the gun ad the NRA who are seen as the problem by the media and thus by society

    Our current anti-gun laws started with restrictions on type and how/where you could carry it. Simple registration soon followed...

    Then (exactly as predicted by the people who opposed the registration laws) slowly more and more restrictive laws about who could or could not own a gun and when or where you could have it have been continuously been imposed on the people who ARE NOT THE PROBLEM.


    *****************

    Appx 60 million RC fliers didn't fly in a manner outside of the AMA guidelines (AMA members or not...)
    One did...

    Its the drone's fault.

    ************

    They slowly have been restricting who can smoke where, just a little at a time...
    first putting a warning label on the pack, then restricting by age, then banning it in certain types of businesses...

    Now they are prosecuting parents for smoking in the car if their kids are in the car too.

    ***********

    There are already people trying to regulate what size soft drink you can buy and what foods McDonald's can sell....

    Next it will be the spoon's fault that people get fat. Ban spoons.

    Do you see a pattern?
    I do.

    This whole thing has me really really pissed off. I really expected the govt would want to know what you are flying. So, they would know who to go after, if some RC pilot causes some damage.
    Instead, they require a number they give you to be on every model you fly. How is that going to help? Unless you leave your model after you crash into something, and most RC pilots retrieve their crashed models to rebuild them.
    All this does is allow the FAA people to come accuse those who do register, and since they don't have a list of what you are flying, they will accuse the nearest registered RC pilot.

    The ones causing problems don't care about no stinking rules.

    Not smart enough to accept advice or just trying to cause problems on purpose...

    So the responsible modelers get treated like criminals for trying to continue enjoying a hobby that has had an excellent safety record for over 70 years.

    I don't disagree. I believe the correct course would have been to give a copy of FAA rules to anyone who receives a new quad. (along with copy of fines for violations)
    And yes, it is quads causing the problem, they are to easy to fly. It takes some skills for a helicopter or airplane.

    But, I've expected this for quite a while now, I think, it may actually make it easier for me. I hope to make money with my quad and camera eventually. For recording sports events, weddings, property inspections, security etc. There have even been articles that show a good quad pilot could make 100,000 a year in the right areas.

    FAA just edited their website... There is now a paragraph saying that model aircraft meeting the guidelines do not have to register.

    I wonder if my e-mails to congress may have had something to do with that...
