I just saw this a little while ago and if I am double posting, I do apologize.

This is the NTSB final report of a collision between a Phantom and a full scale military helicopter in NY. As would be expected, the Phantom pilot was found to be at fault.

What I see out of this is that the FAA is holding fast to the line of sight requirements for modelers. UAVs flying out to 2-3 miles via FPV is not going to hack it, at least from what I see in this report.

Not going to editorialize, just want to make everyone aware of this incident.
