Chris,

I do not feel as though I am placing blame, but pointing out their lack of concern for the hobby industry. DJI makes their money selling at all the photo shops, Best Buy, etc... A hobby shop is probably the last place they even think about now. This is great for a business model, unbelievable growth, unbelievable profit. I can admire their growth from a purely business success story.

They make a good product and are good at designing along the iPhone line--which is what I call diapers to diapers. They want to make a product that sells to anyone from 2 years old to 92 years old. This is what has gotten us into trouble. DJI has been good at convincing us that anyone can fly, even though we all know not everyone should.

They have the platform, they have the money, they could have helped protect the hobby. The problem was, as is always, money. Money drives everything in America. Lets face it, DJI is just another Asian company that wants to own a piece of America. This is not bad, or meant to sound bad, this is just a fact of international business.

I am concerned for the hobby, and it is something dear to me. I have made many friends over the years, and made many fun memories in the hobby. I worry that this registration process encroaches upon the hobby and is just the beginning of something that could end up shrinking our hobby. If I thought it would bring a 100,000 members to the AMA, then I would say great and invite them in to our group. I am worried that the new MR pilot does not plan on joining the AMA nor a local club. I think the registration will almost ensure that the majority of these new MR pilots think with government registration they are good to go.

"RC Helicopter existed since the 70s and there were no problem. There were no close call issue with real flying aircraft until the f***ing knock off quadcopters from china start flooding the sky. People get them because their cheaper than RC Heli and fly their quadcopter everywhere because they are smaller than model RC helicopter."

I cry Bull**** on this. In the early 90's I saw with my own eyes a FAA blackhawk land at a flying field and the agents aboard handcuffed the pilot of a byron's pitt's special to the landing gear while they read the pilot the riot act. 737 pilots landing at Dulles international called it in because this light bulb was flying at their altitude on approach. There have always been issues, it is just that there were much less of them

Of course the culprit that you saw was wanted for crimes that you personally were not aware of.
