i am real, i just pinched my self and felt it.... the problem is no matter what you do some one is going to be pissed off. unless you just sit inside your house and dont make any noise at all. as long as your not breaking the law, there becomes a point when you just have to tell people to go screw off.

I reject your reality and inject my own. I live in the middle of our capital city. I fly helis and planks in our park. No one has ever complained as they are electric. 2 miles from our states capital and people enjoy watching me fly. I respect the dog walkers and wait my turn to use the park. I now have a park 100 paces from my home that I can fly at.
I have entertained a few, myself 5 times today.
Country settings is another thing. I understand.

He should have been civil about asking you to stop. No need to drop the f bomb. As far a running it your with in your rights. Maybe you should tell him to shut his trimmer off I wish you lived by me i bring my 1/8 scale monster truck over and we would have a great time. I run and fly my stuff around my house but always do it at the appropriate times. Maybe you could work something out with him? I dont know sometimes old people are just hard to deal with. I am surprised he can hear it at all. Must have good hearing aids. Good luck

Do they make a quiet pipe for that?

I know I am going against the overall sentiment here, but he is your parent's neighbor and I know what it's like living next to someone you don't get a long with.

It's so much easier to find a compromise as opposed to having a problem every time you or your parent's see him.

That's just me. Neighbors are different than the every day a$$ hats that you see on the street and will never have to deal with again.

Realy, have you lost respect for the people that forged are country. Or have you never been taught. Our elders are to be respected.
If you have no clue, I feel nothing for you. You may attend the memorial day parade and enjoy veterans day yet have no respect for your neighbour not knowing they are park of the respected.
Do you know them?
America was neighbours knowing neighbours, now it seems it is not.

Most jurisdictions have noise ordinances, lawn equipment is usually exempt if used during a "reasonable time of day". Our clubs first field was across the street from a neighborhood. Our club starting getting complaints about the noise, even though we had a variance from the city. After the third complaint, we decided it best to pack up and find another field in an effort to "keep the peace". As others have stated, we have a fragile hobby. Respecting others "rights" to live a quiet and enjoyable life at their home should be just as important to us modelers as keeping our hobby.

Just sayin.

How old is your neighbor??

I have a neighbor behind me that is a bully and tries to threaten me and tell me what I can and can't do in my yard. She even had her daughter come to my house one day and threaten to call the cops because I yelled at her mother.

Don't give in to the neighborhood bullies.
Realy, have you lost respect for the people that forged are country. Or have you never been taught. Our elders are to be respected.
WHAT?!? That's the most assinine connection I have ever heard of. The neighbor is old therefore he's one of the founders of this country?? What are you smoking?? And then to insinuate that respect should be given where it is not earned??? Respect is earned and is a privilege. The neighbor lost his privileges when he came out and demanded (with profanity) that the buggy be turned off.

Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!

People always bring up lawn equipment when this issue comes up. The thing is, mowing the lawn, trimming the weeds etc is a long standing accepted activity in our society. It is engrained in us to hear the sound of a lawn mower and pretty much tune it out. Now, some obnoxious rc car having it's throttle revved and ripping around, it is more intrusive. It's why I bought out in the country, so I wouldn't aggravate my neighbors. It's called respect and common decency. We don't have the right to be noisy jerks even if the laws are ambiguous.

I had to have a conversation with people who live a half mile up my dirt road because their kids were ripping up and down the road almost every day past my house on atvs. Were they breaking laws? No, but the noise and dust was so bad that I reached saturation and went to their house. Now they don't go by nearly as much and they slow to a crawl when they pass. They aren't bad kids, it just never crossed their minds how obnoxious they were being. I'm sorry but a persons desire to play with loud crap should never over ride another persons desire for a peaceful life.

My last neighbor was kinda like that, though I tried to be courteous with them. We had a dog who would bark and growl at visitors, so when friends came over he spent his time in the back yard. Well, we had visitors and the dog was in the back yard barking for a while. About 7 pm I brought the dog in. Noise ordinance begins a 9 pm for that town. Twenty minutes after 7 officer knocks on the door regarding a noise complaint for the barking dog. I asked the officer exactly what, legally he can do if I or my dog WAS making noise before at that time of night, he answered "nothing". So he was there just to show my neighbor is a jerk.

Gun control is like fighting drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to buy cars.

Most jurisdictions have noise ordinances, lawn equipment is usually exempt if used during a "reasonable time of day".
I looked up the village codes of the town I live in and get this;
Leaf blowers and outdoor power tools.

(1) The use of all leaf blowers, excluding electric-powered, between March 15 and May 1 and September 15 and December 15, and then only from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sunday and holidays.
[Amended 5-13-2008 by L.L. No. 4-2008]

(2) The operation of any engine-driven power tool or motorized equipment before 8:00 a.m. and after 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and before 10:00 a.m. and after 5:00 p.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays is prohibited, except that grass may be cut with an internal combustion engine lawn mower by the occupant of the premises on any day between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Any such tool or equipment shall be properly equipped with a muffler or other properly installed manufacturer-approved noise-reduction device so designed and in such condition as to prevent unnecessary noise and to prevent a public nuisance in its operation.
Most of the landscaper companies refuse to do business in this down due to the leaf blower code and they have been lobbying to overthrow it.
The mayor stepped in and gave this line "we will have to review and possibly amend this due to research wasn't completed before the law was written and it appears to be doing more harm than good"

It seems like leaf blowers aren't as bad as they used to be. I think the newer ones did something about that sonic whine or something. We have a few in our landscaping division and they seem pretty quiet. Maybe it's in how they are being used. I don't see guys walking around with the throttle maxed out, they just run it high enough to do the job. Same with the weedeaters. Knotheads that run the weedeater wide open just makes me shake my head, especially when they are just trimming grass.

I'm struggling to agree with some of these comments it's not like I'm some 12 year old kid trying to cause a ruckus in my neighborhood the houses are spaced apart quite a bit and it was his total approach that was rude and uncalled for I hear a lot of people talking about me respecting him and his peace and quiet but what about me trying to enjoy my hobby from my own property at 2 in the afternoon ? Not for nothing but this guy has a trap shoot for clay pigeons in his backyard and my family has never complained about him and his buddies shooting for hours at a time... There should be able to be a happy medium somewhere I consider myself extremely approachable and easy to talk to I treat others how I would want to be treated... IMO

Did you mean to do that? Yeah its called a crash landing its a new trick
