This is what is going to kill our hobby. It has been happening for a long time and I only see it getting worse.

They use watercraft and tunnels too, but I can still go out and buy a boat or shovel if I want.

E820, Raptor G4N, X50F/E, E620, Forza 450, and some planks.

I saw them use a mobile trebuchet launcher on the news no too long ago....

They'd pull up...and proceed to launch...then split...

Really, have they quit selling shovels at home depot too. Let's see...drug dealers have been using planes for years. I guess the FAA will shut down the use airplanes too. Keep calm people, and fly'em if you got em.

Tweeker drones? Now I've seen it all.

It's not good publicity but publicity seldom is when you think of it.

Yup. Failed to deliver. Management don't go to lawyers and through HR when there's an employee failure.

I just fly helicopters with a little help from gyros. It's amazing how many people have said "so you have a drone" smdh.

Killing our hobby
NO IT'S NOT!

It has nothing to do with our hobby.

Criminals use cars, airplanes, ultralights, RC models, animals luggage, human mules, and whatever they can think of to make illegal activities.

It does not make the items illegal, the activity itself is.

Hundreds of morons operate motor vehicles DAILY in so many irresponsible ways and that does not make cars illegal.

So please STOP yelling "THE DARN SKY IS FALLING" every time an idiot uses an RC model, or quad irresponsibly.

I whole hardily agree. The sky is NOT falling. A few midcourse adjustments and we will be good to go.

Agree
Also. How smart do you have to be to do it there!!! You can just go 10 miles east or west and walk it across. Maybe they could hire the illegal Aliens crossing the border to just carry it !! Nobody stops them!

problems never get solved by gripping about them. So maybe less effort complaining and more on problem solving.

To me dji is the first to make a good attempt to solve the problem with the auto shutdown. We need more solutions like that and the problem will go away. Maybe every plane and airport should have some kind of a low power level transponder with a receiver built into the control boards that can't be removed with out bricking the unit that would cause anything within 200 yards of the plane to shut down. Could also be put up around large gatherings like games, races etc. I'm no tech god but I'm sure some brilliant mind out there could make it happen.
