    We are being regulated out of the sky.. Does general or commercial
    aviation route traffic over national parks? How much are they paying in
    fines? Do WE have any rights left in our once-free nation? Time to write
    your state senators and reps! We outnumber commercial pilots 3:1
    already and it is time for "people" to matter. We PAY enough in TAXES to
    create and pay the salaries of these "little Nero's" so shouldn't we
    ALSO have the RIGHT to live in a FREE NATION again? Lets MAGA and help
    Donald J Trump "drain the swamp" and "reel-in" tyrants! Is this OUR
    country yet or have we turned it over to lunatics?

    The reason they are tough on Drones in the US and Europe is they are expecting a bomb or chemical attack with a drone soon.
    Partly revenge for the drones killing in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and others, but also just an easy way of killing many people.
    An attack could be from a 5 foot drone, and there could be 7-8 of them, these can be built very easily and the terrorists are thinking outside the box!
    Yes it would be easier to use a suicide bomber or a gang of gun men, but their religion states 'eye for an eye' quite literally and not forgetting, five to six very large quads carrying bombs/chemicals could kill thousands. If they were clever and did a baseball game or suchlike, there would be as many killed from the stampede (trampled to death like in England) than from the bombs.
    The threat is very serious and hence the authorities are TAKING it very serious.

    I think it's not the fault of the FAA , as we can see , you are near an airport , and it might disturb plane's radars and some other sensible equipment , but as you fly at reasonable height it's not the case , I think it's bad pilots fault : Those fly over peoples and take pics of them , and publish them on internet , as we are "brain equiped" guys we DO NOT all those anoying things … I live in South of france , and utnil couple of month , we have to Follow Sky rules as plane's pilots , and as we own FPV Craft or UAV ( with GPS and craft that we can navigate without seeing our model ) we have to pay attention of restricted flying areas , that we cannot fly near airport or air field ( for paraglider for example ), and we have to bring "Le plan de vol" to the nearest control tower if we plan to fly higher than 350 / 400 meters in the same way of boeing's pilots 🙂 huhu 🙂
    But we are not restricted . The fault ramains to the bad guys who make bullshit with their UAV , and if I could put an AK47 on my 450mm Quad , I will certainly shoot them before they see me 🙂 huhuhu , but I'am a good guy and won't do this 🙂
    Hope you can fly in another area , perhaps it will be more pleasant … I presume because I don"t know were you live 🙂
    All my wishes from france to you , How is your dear Bumblebee ?

    Fuck the FAA! Fly it anyhow and when they come and fuck with you, mash them in the nose! It's time to stop them from overreaching. If no one takes a stand, than this country is so fucked!

    I have mixed feelings about the National park ban. On one hand I'd like to photograph some of our natural beauties with my DJI phantom and on the other hand I don't want to be on a hike and see a bunch of drones buzzing around cluttering the sky and making a bunch of noise. After spending a couple months on a Facebook group with other drone flyers I've seen numerous videos of idiots flying to 6,000ft, in populated areas with no regard for the safety of others. It's sad that so many people have the attitude that if they don't get caught and no one gets hurt that it's ok. They forget that once these 4 pound drones loose power they fall like a rock and can kill.

    Unfortunately for us, those "leaders" we have entrusted our lives with have twisted things in such a way that they BENEFIT from this mess THEY created and have "morphed" the cops into a private security force to protect THEM from US while  they screw us into oblivion.

    fyi, as far as I know they won't be actually able to confiscate your quad. the FAA issues fines for violations of their regulations. it could be as much as thousands of dollars but unless you do something high profile you'll probably be ok

    If AMA cannot protect it's  members, why do you people pay membership fees to it.  Its a useless organization that is impotent and cannot do anything.  Just another bureaucratic body that does nothing.

    I like the idea of filming national parks since multirotors can go places and "Leave no trace" where we as humans stomp, hack, and litter our way through them.

    Mcdills.finest.. Looks as if your out by Zephyrhills. I fly out that way with my phantom. And my other rc planes. . I'm from the Clearwater area. Good video. This FAA stuff is why I'm almost to scared to fly any were any more unless at a flying field. .good video by the way.

    It is no surprise the FAA wants to regulate when people like Trappy from team Black Sheep show complete irresponsibility by flying over heavily populated and sensitive areas (London houses of Parliament and Trafalgar square) and Flightest then have him on their show and tell us what a great guy he is! What sort of message do you think this has sent to the powers that be? Flying many miles a year due to work, am glad there is the FAA to regulate airspace and have regulations on airplanes to ensure we travel in a safe environment. Instead of blaming the FAA, let us go after the clowns like Trappy and keep them off our flying fields.

    i post videos of my flight on youtube. Would this ban be considered a hindrance to my Freedom of Speech/Freedom of Expression as defined by the First Amendment? I mean, i fly safely and responsibly so my videos harm no one. But ban my ability to fly with a camera and now I cannot express myself.

    as a fan of national parks and RC flying all i can say is…. GOOD 

    National Parks are not the place to fly for recreational use…. go fly in an empty field or at an AMA field

    I know the FAA may be going a little to far but coming from a private pilots and commercial airline pilot point of view I would not want an unmanned FPV Flying near my $12000 aircraft and causing a potential risk to my safety. Also there is an FAA law concerning Experimental aircraft, since these are still experimental, that can be seen hear http://www.faa.gov/aircraft/gen_av/ultralights/amateur_built/amateur_regs/, and I have seen some YouTube videos that do violate these rules.  Also I want to leave with a question

    what is this and what all it stands for: TERPZ3 LDN J134 HNN FLM J134 STL J24 OATHE JAGGR2 

    If You don't know what this is in full detail it would probably be safer for all if you did not fly in and class airspace or at all for the safety for fellow airman.

    Unfortunately, us RC'ers don't have a powerful lobby like the NRA to fight for our rights. Compared to the NRA, the AMA is toothless.

    The gov't thugs are looking for something else they can tax and levy fines against. They want "their cut". Damn parasites. They need to do something productive with their lives and leave people alone.

    Hi,
    The FAA has essentially outlawed rc flying in the USA. The AMA has kept the hobby safe for 75 years, even when we used volatile fuel in our airplanes, the incidence of injuries was low. the current rules mean that any plane that is demonstrated by somebody that is paid (like J Bixler), means that that plane, and Bixler must be licensed by the FAA. Since flitetest builds their own, and publishes the plans, this means all scratch builds will have to receive air worthiness certificates.

    That's the end of rc flying.

    I would rather fly with regulations than  not be able to fly at all. People that push the envelope of common sense and safety bring about the FAA regulations. If we cannot govern our hobby then they will…. my point is if you see someone flying unsafely  go talk to them for the sake of saving our hobby. I fly quadcopters with cameras but I would stop short of calling it a drone. Multirotor or quadcopter seem more correct to me. Happy flying 🙂

    There is nothing wrong with flying in the Grand Canyon or Mount Rushmore… Those are open places and the risk of hurting someone are minimal. The problem is the people that fly recklessly and the ones that think they can pick up a DJI Phantom or a RTF kit and just go at it, it takes skill and practice. You also need to know proper building and setup methods, as well as maintenance.
    You cannot say it is OK for the FAA or National Parks to now dictate what we can do when we do it safely. If we do something wrong then prosecute, prosecute the ones who fly recklessly.

    like you said there are a lot of KNUCKLE HEADS in youtube that misused the drone! it sucks tho cause now we safe flyer drone are penalized for the knuckle head's stupidity! that's why sometimes I leave messages to the knuckle heads in youtube saying, "what will you guys do if your drone crash, land on someone's head and died"

    what the FFA should do is watch youtube and whoever is misusing the drone should be fined! simple as that!
