Re: New law being passed that severely restricts drone hobbyists
You don't need an FCC license to fly ultralight aircraft, so this is all bullshit that riled up as soon as people started strapping HD cameras to them and trying to reach low earth orbit.

Pay attention.

Re: New law being passed that severely restricts drone hobbyists
I love how the insurrection makes secret laws that they enforce, then years later get around to having congress pass similar laws to be published.

Police and others have been stealing drones out of peoples mail before they even get them, microwaving them, shooting them down, etc. for years.

I live in a college town. Do you think there are some people that want to fly? I live near a nice park and a river; a good place to fly. I don't think I have ever seen anyone fly a drone in this town.

If you think you live in a free country go buy one and fly it.

Funny how many things are illegal... until you pay the government money. Then, no problem!

That's why we need government so badly!
 Quoting: g0v


I agree...right up until I'm on final approach and your 500 dollar drone takes out my 2.8 million dollar engine on my Citation and hopefully doesn't kill me in the process.
 Quoting: Homie B Honeydick


My drone has an ADS-B transponder on it and can integrate with existing ICAO anti-collision systems. So it isn't a hazard to your precious $2.8M Citation jet. However, reading your comments, I think you're more of a risk to people as an unhinged pilot.

Your $2.8M Citation jet can do a lot more damage than a 500g drone.

I'll call BS and say you're just a wanna be pilot who is actually living in mom's basement flying Flight Sim X.
You are born with the truth, then taught a lie.

Re: New law being passed that severely restricts drone hobbyists
My drone is the Mavic 2 zoom it weighs about as much as an Apple can fly about 2000 feet high and has a range of about 5 miles from the controller and will fly for about 25 minutes and basically flies at south to text any obstacle’s can track and follow people Auto stabilizers itself and its camera automatically flies home and lands at south on command or if it ever loses contact with the controller And is viewable through wireless VR goggles for an immersive experience flying in HD. I agree it’s bullshit that’s such a tiny little toy requires this. If this ever hit an airplane or helicopter it would be like a bug hitting your car
 Quoting: Cardiak


That sounds pretty awesome tbf mate hf

I had no idea they could fly so far away and so that just backs up my theory about why they are suddenly wanting to restrict them - too much they want to hide imo and they are hard to spot sometimes and i guess on some level they could be considered a security risk in wrong hands? Not that i agree with this restriction stuff as i would buy one if i could.

 Quoting: curry nosher


I will admit, the future of drones is scary. The next decade or two will likely see a big influx of drone assassinations once people start deploying guns or explosives to these guys.

I was blown away when I got mine and saw how stable it is, it basically flies itself. Can take it to the beach in extreme winds and it just hovers staticly and the camera self levels so you have no idea the drone is actually sitting at a 30 degree angle fighting against 45 mph winds its all extremely smooth and viewed through 1080x1920 HD goggles. Can zoom 4x, can highlight people on the controllers display and it will target you and automatically follow where ever you go and keep you in the shot. If you jumped on a jetski or a motorcycle it would follow and dodge any obstacles to keep you in its tracking. It auto detects any objects above beside or below it and reacts and dodges it unless you are in sports mode. It goes 32 MPH in regular mode and 45MPH in sports.

Mine has a fishing mod built onto it so I can connect my line and fly it out about 800 yards which is the max my reel will hold and drop chunks in the ocean to catch tuna and occasional sharks.

This thing cost less then $2000 so I cant imagine the kind of shit the government or big money people have. A terrorist organization or simply an assassin could easily take one of these make it a bit larger to carry a larger payload or weapon and take a target out from extreme distances which is frightening when you think about it.

So now you want to register plastic bags? What's the age limit on plastic bags, to carry? Does one need to complete a safety course for the use of these very dangerous plastic bags? Have your brought this plastic bag problem to congress?

Agreed.

And to those who argue terrorists will use drones: they're right. They will. But they're not going to register their drones and take the test, so all the gov't is doing is inconveniencing law-abiding hobbyists.

The gov't is basically saying they own the sky and will be taxing us for putting a small piece of plastic in it for a few minutes at a time.

True. But I don't think the government will allow drone flyers to do that even if they pay a license fee.

And what many forget is, terrorists flying a drone with 3 pounds of C4 strapped to it won't bother following any rules. For that reason, the only defense of offense: planes will need to be designed with drone detectors and fitted with drone killers. That's the only surefire way to protect them.

"When they ban drones, only criminals will have drones"

Heard anything similar before?

Not even suggesting banning them I'm thinking Insurance and radio tracking I have to do that with my 26 million dollar aircraft, should you not have to follow same you are also In the air.
