I cant believe some of the posts on here , this video is in no way flown safely, this is why we are having issues with the FAA , thanks to all the assholes that dont see anything wrong with that flight. I could care less if he wants to fly into fireworks, thats not the issue, flying that far away over a crowd of people is what i have a problem with, keep ****ing it up for the people that follow the rules great job ass wipes

Hey steve 01.
What happened is the original video showed just the fireworks, so many felt ok by that. But then there was more video not shown, and I updated the post to reflect that. That is where its flying over people. So dont go too hard on the original members that at first saw nothing wrong as they did not see all the video from start to end..
Its all earth!

Not unsafe unreal
Just from the bull crap I read on here from some people I know they are not invested in this hobby. Flying over a crowd at a concert where at the very least the performance could have bin stopped to make sure the artist were not in any danger and at the most crashing into the crowd. This as someone already posted is the exact reason this hobby is in danger. the operator was across a body of water where a concert has major electrical devices that could have caused a some sort of interference. this was just as good as some idiot flying a E700 on top of a construction site across from the united nations in new York city.

I want to through something out there that may get people outraged or it may get people thinking about the dangers we face in our daily life. Righ now it seems everybody is outraged about a multi rotor aircraft being flown over crowds. Why are people not outraged about Blimps flying over race tracks, ball parks, football stadiums, etc? It seems to me that if a Blimp went down into the stands it would do far more damage than a multi rotor RC aircraft. The approach path to both of the Chicago airports is directly above thousands of people living in the city. Way are people not outraged about airplanes which weigh tons and are full of highly flammable fuel flying directly over there heads? If a plane goes down over a populated area the death toll on the ground could be major and that doesn't even count the loss of the passengers on the plane.

Now let's talk about what the difference might be. Of course the planes, blimps, helicopters are flown by licensed and certified pilots and the multi rotor RC aircraft is not. Of course the aircraft are deemed airworthy by the FAA. The multi rotor RC aircraft is not. It seems to me that if a person or company wants to put the general public in danger then all they need to do is obtain the proper license and use approved aircraft.

So here is what I am proposing, if you want to fly a multi rotor craft over a crowd get a license to do it and get a craft that has been deemed airworthy by the FAA.

Wait you say, no such thing as a RC Comercial License or FAA approved multi rotor. Well maybe that is the path that the FAA should be heading down. Make the person that wants to make money with these devices earn the right by obtaining the proper credentials. Make the punishment for doing it with the proper credentials something that a person would not want to endure. Jail and fines come to mind right away. Seems to me that we a solution.

Comments, concerns, criticisms are most welcome.

There are a LOT of other things in the world that are causing a LOT more danger and deaths than UAS or UAV. WHY is everybody picking on those instead of the ongoing previously existing problems . . . like drunk driving ? You call that a sensible priority ? ? Or are you just making noise because it gives you some attention ?

^^^^^ I'm sure if someone found and posted a video that someone made of them or some friends driving drunk, you'd get the same responses.
No one would make such a video because the police would likely be knocking on their door sometime.

Driving a car is already regulated and there are laws against many unsafe uses.
Thus far, there hasn't been much call to regulate RC. Most in the hobby were very safety conscientious and thoughtful of their actions.
Now, as it gets quite out of hand, concerns are being raised and will likely become regulated.
It's a very simple matter really.

Of course it is . . . but that doesn't really take care of the problem, it only lets society punish the violators.

Ok a drone, gun, or car can't kill or harm anyone. However some one using a drone, gun, or car can harm or kill others or them self. These are all just tools.

That said a pilot of a 8 motor thing (not quad as it had 8) was filming a group of runners and came up behind one of the runners have hit him in the back of the head. This was during a large race and made the news. Another drone hit a girl in a park and sliced her up. Nothing major but trying telling that to mom and dad as they are cleaning the blood off.

I'm not so worried about one hitting a person so much. What I'm worried about are these bone heads that like to go up to 1,500 feet of higher where they can get wacked by an aircraft. Lets see what happens when a 5lb quad gets sucked in to a jet engine. I bet it would screw up a prop/piston engine as well. At least it would require a tear down and inspection that will cost several thousand dollars.

And the bone head that does this will have never been to this site or RCGroups or even heard of the AMA. But odds are they will have YouTube and facebook accounts.

In my previous post I suggested that the non-hobby use of multi rotor aircraft be regulated. Maybe have the AMA start a division that would license people and air frames. The EAA has programs in place that guide a person through the build process of an experimental aircraft and make sure it is airworthy. Perhaps the AMA needs to have similar processes in place to guide and license people that want too use these machines for commercial purposes. That way the FAA would not be involved and we hobbiests (is that a word) could go about our Merry way at the FF.

to go up to 1,500 feet of higher
In 1981 FAA Advisory Circular AC 91-57 advised that model aircraft not exceed altitudes of 400ft. At this time there is no FAA regulation/rule preventing model aircraft from flying above 400’ AGL. For the past 32 years the AMA applied this FAA advisory only within 3 miles of an airport in the AMA National Safety Code. The AMA will continue to use all its resources to prevent the FAA from making 400’ a regulation/rule for all locations of model aircraft flying.
