Is someone trying to make a point or is this what is coming for FPV?

Notice that the document reference's the Zephyr as a power glider aircraft. Furthermore, an "Unmanned Aircraft System"

I find it interesting that they obviously spoke with and worked with the NYPD and park rangers to get the NYC video and a squad was even in the last shot. The fact that they were working under supervision of either the NYPD or park rangers may possibly bode well for them in regard to the $10,000 fine.

Having read the reply from Trappy's attorney the FAA has no leg to stand on.

Have Rotors, Will Fly!

They better find something to stand on or it will turn into a free for all.

I doubt it will turn into a free for all.

The response clearly outlines all of the faults on the part of the FAA and sights precedence for each and every accusation.

None the less, it's a great start and will hopefully lead to the outlining of something on the part of the greatly delayed FAA proposals.

With the FAA being 6 years behind where they should be, it should (according to the FAA) take roughly 5 years or so to actually have something ready to be able to submit into an actual law.

Or so I'm told.

What would you call it now?

The PIC at Bull Run didn't hear the egg timer ring and crashed due to spent batteries.

I would call that a goof.

I wouldn't quite call that a free for all.

There are no doubt some issues but I'd hardly call that one big free for all.

I'd hardly call it organized. We have another wave of yahoos out there operating without insurance, over crowds and at the end of runways etc. Maybe you think it's a good thing?? I don't.

It already is a free for all. Its called the Militry and they make a regular practice of flying dangerously low over heavy populated areas.
Now, Im not against the militray and thier flights. But ,living in San Diego and knowing that the US Navy directed an F-14 tomcat to proceed to the Miramar NAS with one engine down and the second engine starting to flame out. The pilot was directed to land at The 32nd street naval yard instead the local commander gave permission to proceed to Miramar. The plane did not make it , it crashed into University city killing three civilians in their own home.

So, enough of the flying over people bull****. Its getting old

I don't know that I say that military aviation is a free for all. Okay, so what is more of a necessity, some guys filming a local bluegrass festival or national defense?

I seem to trust the $38M aircraft and the pilot with thousands of hours of training vs. the person with the $200 quad they purchased from the dollar store.

July of this year. 5 gallon bucket falls from the sky in the middle of the night and goes through the roof of a local car repair shop. Not only does it go through the roof, but it shatters all the windows in the store, ruins the alignment machine ect.
Two day later the Marines admit that it was from an Osprey and its was some type of grease they use. The Mechanic forgot to remove before flight

Did you know that in six months ( acording to the military) you can be trained to repair electronic circuits used in aviation?

Southwest Airlines- order to do a wing inspection of its 737 fleet. Last I checked they had about 1/3rd inspected.

Oh yeah....thye skies are very safe

Im not one of those who believe countless daily flights of billion dollar aircraft is truly needed for national defense.
But, it does keep Lockheed , General Dynamics, Grumman ect. Rich

Is there a place we can donate to Trappy's defense fund? He needs a "Free Trappy" facebook page and we all need some "free trappy" tee shirts

Sorry Splitboarder, but this kind of thinking is why we took such huge losses at the beginning of WWII, same problem in Korea. History is a GREAT teacher, if one only decides to learn and understand the lessons.

A weak Nation invites invasion, ask any that were invaded by Germany... TWICE... or those invaded by Japan.

Soviet Russia was weak from the Purges of Stalin, which is why they came so close to losing it all when Germany invaded them.

In my mind, I would rather we be strong to our enemies and kind to our allies. It saves lives when the inevitable happens and we MUST use force to protect ourselves. In Desert Storm we were highly trained and highly equipped. That wasn't because of President H.W. Bush, it was because of President Ronald Reagan and his foresight to get us what we needed to wage war, in as short a period of time as possible, saving lives, AMERICAN lives.

If we wait until war happens to train and equip our soldiers, it's WAY too late. Just ask those that were in Korea in the early days.

Now about that Trappy Defense Fund, Let's do it!!!

I worked at The Tomahawk cruise missle factory. I know what one unit cost. Reagan and the Military machine is also why we are broke.
I mean look at the cost off justone
f-18 fighter
V-22 osprey
tomahawk cruise missle
M1-abrams tank
and all the cost to fuel and maintain these machines and their hourly operating cost and it doesnt take a much brain power to figure out where our taxes go.
It true, just everyone is affraid to say it.
Im 51 years old and I cant remeber one single day in my life that the defense department and the state department didnt continually warns us about todays current "boogey man"
They are
Communists
Manuel Noriega ( yeah, thats funny)
Iran
Iraq Afganistan Al Quieda ect

Check back ten years from now and the players will have changed but the companies making money on your sons and daughters lives are as follows
Lockheed
General Dynamics
Boeing
Grumman
ect

if you havent figured it out buy now war is a buisness .And without a "boogey man" the defense industry doestn make anything

Remeber I live in San Diego and have work for about have of the above companies
