It's the same 'ole story.
Pass more laws so the idiots can't act like idiots,
. . . instead of holding the idiots directly responsible for their idiocy.
When you try to make something idiot proof, all you get is a smarter idiot.
+1!!

I dunno... I'm pessimistic about FPV - I think we've lost that war. Commercial operation, tho, I'm maybe a little more optimistic about. That part of all this has enough economic clout behind it to go purchase almost whatever regs it wants from the FAA. So I think commercial use will end up accomodated somehow.

But FPV and especially training for FPV is dead in the water legally. We just don't have that kind of numbers or economic presence. I mean, it won't stop us, , but I don't see safe, legal and affordable FPV in our regulatory future ever again.

revmix, you seem very adamant to have more restrictions placed on RC modelers. Do you work for the FAA or are you just a contrarian, troublemaker or troll?

I've been wondering that myself. Good question as most of his posts are akin to being a shill for the FAA.

Cryptic as usual revmix. Please answer the question. Are you employed either directly of indirectly by the FAA?

If we don't police ourselves, someone is going to police us for us. People can't keep lobbing quads into the wild blue without regard to altitude or line of sight and then posting the videos on Youtube. As a pilot, hitting a quad at 180mph in my RV-6 scares the hell out of me. As a fellow R/C enthusiast, the irresponsibility of other people's actions are likely to restrict my enjoyment of the hobby and I resent their disregard for the rules.

Yes, "if." Big "if!" The FAA interpretive rule will not be codified in its present form. It is overreaching, draconian and obtuse in its construction, ill-advised in its intent and unnecessary at its core. It appears that the FAA has not sought the expertise of those in the RC community, rather it's still licking its wounds inflicted by the "paper airplane" judge and being manipulated by the defense contractors.

AMAteurs?
Matt Waite, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor who runs a drone-journalism program that got a cease-and-desist letter from the FAA last year, said he is concerned that the “longer it takes to have the rules of the road in place, the more the technology advances and the cheaper it gets, the closer we get to some knucklehead doing something dumb and hurting someone.”

Like fly an airliner into a building? Oh wait, isn't that illegal??

Make all the laws you want, stupid people will still do stupid things. Only now you've restricted those who DO follow the "rules"....

You can't hold the idiots accountable for their actions because there are way to many of them with home computers and YouTube accounts.

AMA wants the rules the way that r/c players could not be held accountable by law for their reckless actions, aka idiot/fool-proof
