If you do not need clearance to fly, then this is not a restriction for you. your RC heli is not considered a UAV (unless you make it a little bigger)
Uhhh.....wow.

What part of "model aircraft operations" don't you understand? What does having a need for a clearance have anything to do with it?

We understand you are just trying to help, but maybe you need a primer on US airspace and control procedures and regulations before you talk to them.

Uh, I do deal with airspace, and military aircraft, so before you even attempt to have a pissing contest with someone, make sure you know the size of their penis.The voices in my head can beat up the voices in your head.

Likewise, my friend.

If you are so up on things, how could you have made the ignorant statement you did?

If you had ANY experience with the UAS industry, you'd know better. You blew your credibility in one easy sentence.

I think what Portblock was responding to was the comment that it is unwise to fly near an airport. It is actually not unwise as long as appropriate coordination has taken place. Seeing as he's from Van Nuys, you might find it interesting that there is a flying field (Apollo, I believe) directly under and slightly to the side of the approach path to the Van Nuys airport, which is a busy LA area airport and is only a mile or so away. Burbank Airport is also right there, not too far away. They obviously have agreements in place to avoid issues.

I don't think he was implying that it was okay to violate a TFR. He is wrong about the UAV/UAS thing but that's something that is still being worked out.

FWIW there's a traveling 30 mile TFR around Air Force, or Marine One at all times.

Most of us would never know it.

While I support clubs within a known TFR radius shutting down operations and playing the game, I think its kind of like gun control. I have to get a permit and register and wait because I'm law abiding but every crack dealer within 100 miles has an AK 47 in their trunk. It really only effects law abiding types and if someone wants to do harm they aren't going to do it from a club field where everyone would be grabbing a cell phone and calling the cops. For that matter it would probably be better for the field to be normally occupied, thats probably better security than chaining a gate and leaving it empty.

there is no "agreement" at sepulveda, there can't be since it is a public field and no one club or person has any authority. once in a while the FAA gets complaints from VN pilots, and when there are enough, or something serious triggers a response, the field goes away - so far that has been avoided. Burbank traffic is a non issue.

The FAA rarely flexes its muscle with RC, but when they do, they certainly have the power. Prado was shut down a few years ago when a full size pilot reported a near miss with an rc jet, putting an end to jets at prado and closing the field for a few weeks until everyone was satisfied that the FAA's 400 foot "recommendation" would be observed and enforced.
