Put a boom box outside his window and fire up some Benny Goodman, then go fly - problem solved.

I would have landed, hit throttle hold, beat the crap out of the guy, then called the police and inform them that I had just been assualted.

What is the AMA doing about this? I mean, what is the AMA doing to protect our interests in public places. What is the official stance? Seems to me that RC types have to be a little more organized, or at least have a strong national voice.

My work mate was with me at the time, he is a county rugby player, he pushed the bloke away and told him to **** off. After the bloke came over about 4 times screaming and shouting I reported him to the police for threatening behaviour. They visited the bloke and warned him away.

His actions have got the town council and the district council on our side, they are even talking about installing shelters with work benches and power points for charge stations!! If he comes over again I will thank him!

When I was younger I boxed for many years, I could have sorted him out probably without even landing!! But the way we have played the situation has worked out just rite.

Just had to respond to this one.. my fav comment by yanks. Canned Canuck answer:

"Go right ahead. I shall meet you at the border with snowballs and throw them at you as the RCMP takes you away."

BTW, even in the states, force has to be met with reasonable force. He isn't on your property, and if he is unarmed, shooting him would be considered, at best, manslaughter. Likly they would put you away for second degree murder. Had he come at you with a knife, or baseball bat that would be different. It would be hard to say that you were put in fear for your life by an unarmed senior citizen!

Yet another reason I am glad that we aren't gun crazy up here.

I think this thread has jumped the shark. Pretty soon someone is going to compair the situation with the Nazis and it will be official! =P.

I don't think it is appropriate to fly any RC heli or airplane for that matter in a public park.
I see it as a safety and liability issue.

Exactly Your right 100%
I cant believe some of the stupid responses here. First off AMA dont hav3e no rights to do squat about a public park as they are NOT a sanctioned filed dont like to bad go join a club or buy your own damn land to fly on. SOmeone hit me they will regret it for as long as they live period. As for the anti gun spew typical from canada eh. Cant believe the amount of inmature responses.

Of course he AMA has no right, but the AMA is also a body that should be vocal about out interests. Who is actually trying to stop all municipalities from banning RC? When you go try to ban dogs from a park, you hear from the Kennel Club.

I know that the AMA has been active in protecting modeling at a National level with Homeland Security and the FAA etc, but I am wondering what they are doing a local level. This is probably left up to clubs, but there should be some kind of national organizing of effort.

Open space is being lost every day, and I can only see us loosing more space to local ordinances until RC modelers are as visible and vocal as dog owners.

And as far as public park- we all have to use our best judgment, and we should always err on the side of safety. I live near a park that is two back to back baseball fields, is fenced off, and is totally unoccupied during the daytime. This is in the most urban of environments. Should I refrain just because it is not AMA sanctioned?

Perhaps if the refrain "If you do that I would just shoot you" wasn't so common among Americans, I and most Canadians would have a very different view.

I was under the impression that the AMA insurance covered your flying at public parks? I know that until this year, MACC insurance covered park flying. If you are insured, and aren't negligent I can't see what the problem would be....

Obviously because I don't carry insurance in a park, as soon as a single person sets foot on the field, flying time is over for me.

I am not your typical 70 year old most people think about. I still roller blade and can outrun most typical overwieght teens. Check my gallery for my picture.
Ok, I'm done with this and being off topic.
