It may not be responsible but it is totally legal here in the US. Flight operations are permitted in public parks if the local governing bodies give the local club or AMA members regardless of club affiliation, permission.
It's legal so I'm going to do it...Damn the consequences and who cares who gets hurt...It's legal and it's my right.

Yeah,sounds like an entitled jerk opinion alright.

Don't bother addressing me Solmanbandit....Your arguments are childish and ignorant...Not wasting any more time with them...Impossible

Ok, if you're touting the risks involved outweighing the fun, DON'T FLY!

Leave the rest of us the hell alone and go lobby some sub-committee dedicated to having us all wear padded uniforms and crash helmets, while sitting on our couches in a desensitization room during the day.

I will continue to enjoy the hobby and be a part of the excellent safety record flying helis and planes in the AMA.

I'm talking about uninvolved bystanders enjoying a park that was designed for their use...Not your heli.

Ask your doctor if your heart is healthy enough for Radio Control Helicoptering.

Learning to operate ANY machine anywhere at first is dangerous. Just check the construction site workplace accident rate of young people to their mature instructors, co-workers, and employers.

Public park or where ever, people should be smart enough to stay out of harms way, but we know they don't. Maybe we have to educate them at the moment before continuing in our form of leisure be it where-ever that is.

The rc heli pros and cons are known to the operator who sticks with it, up to a point. A public park often has a sign posted with what is and what is not allowed there for the public benefit. Not everyone adheres to the rules however, we all know that.

Why do people continue to compare dangerous toys to things that are an absolute necessity for society to survive?

Cars,construction,airliners....These things are completely necessary.

Toy helicopters buzzing children in a park...Stupid and the world would be better without them.

If you are watching for children while flying...you're not paying enough attention to the heli.
If you are concentrating on the heli...you're not going to see a child run up.

The two things are mutually exclusive...You can do either but if you're doing them both,you're not doing either one well.

That's just it, it's not an "entitled jerk opinion" at the parks in question all over the US, local governments have set aside areas where flying is legal and safe, signage has been installed and folks have been warned. There are no "rights" in question, they are negotiated privileges, big difference. There are lots of shared use parks in the US.

Delayed Response Operator Not Engaged
AMA SECTION 336 = Good
Drones = EVIL

And those are NOT the ones I'm talking about.
How many times can you ignore this?
I have said so four times in four posts.

Helis should be flown in areas void of people or in areas designated for RC use.

The park in the video...Does that look like a flying field?

The girl in Tampa was in a park that PROHIBITS motorized models.Those jerks flew anyway and seriously hurt someone.

That's the jackasses I'm referring to.

necessary or not the example shows new operators of machines make more mistakes, rc heli or othwise, if it concerns the public or not. We live in a world full of machines, they are all hazardous. Do we ban them? People get hurt by them, we call it progress.

Responsibility for ones actions is more difficult to shrug off when we are mature compared to youth who often excuse them self with "oh, I didn't know".

Who flys at a park with moms and children loose or curious, that's asking for serious trouble.

See?
That's ridiculous and you know it.

If you ban construction equipment or automobiles of any size,society collapses and people all over the world starve to death and die of simple diseases.

If you ban a toy heli from a park,a few whiney asses cry a little and the public is safer.

Um....I think they usually close the park before bringing in the construction equipment.

And the people getting hurt by construction equipment is the construction workers...This is what I do by the way.

When an operator hurts some random uninvolved person,they are sometimes arrested pending investigation...If they aren't arrested,there will still be an investigation with possible criminal charges.

I really don't care if you hack off your head with a heli...If you hurt someone in a park that had nothing to do with your flying,I think it should be a crime....It is with all the other things you guys like to compare to.

We have a crane operator in prison here for manslaughter because the crane tipped over onto a highway.

People get fines and even jail time for car crashes every few seconds.

all of the above as long as it is reported. In construction, the public sometimes becomes involved. Yes, injury to other persons can be criminal and punishable by fine/jail, investigations are regulation. That's what makes people ask, "should I or shouldn't I", drunk drive, Jetski, skydive, rc, you name it if it involves more than one person in a public place it's got risk to persons other than yourself. People do their best to retain control at all times.

In the workplace you have a right to refuse work and operate a machine without proper training if you know it is dangerous to you or anyone else, and so the bylaw officers will do the same, shut you down, when complaints and questions come in on some goof flying an rc thing out of control at grand mom and pops favorite flower garden, maybe doing a little unsolicited trimming while they were at it,

Hmmm.
Isn't this interesting. I did a search on "rc helicopter in park".
Very 1st youtube vid that came up. Look at how far the family and dog got into the flight space at 4:25

Wow, didn't take long to find. It's kinda funny because I started to watch it and figured, "this should be good...bound to get into trouble here eventually....LOL"
BTW, I ignored the guy standing out in the middle of the field by himself. He looked like a participant so I could care less. But even there it wasn't the best structured flying site now was it.

Watch at YouTube

I counted at least 8 other structures near where you fly in the photo. Unless you own all 8, there are people close enough to your flying that could be injured or affected by property damage in the event your heli has an unforeseen radio problem. Chances are slim, but there's a chance nonetheless. Guess you need to stick to an AMA field as well...

Hahaha...Right.

I actually have talked to all my neighbors about everything to do with it.
What time would be best...When are the kids away from home...When I fly the 700,I call and ask if it's ok....

We show some respect here in the country.

And besides that,it's nearly 1/4 mile from where I fly to the nearest structure I don't own.1000 feet or so anyway.

And...There is NO SUCH THING as an AMA field.
