    That's what we're talking about here, folks. Drones are nothing more than weaponized and/or accessorized R/C models. If that fact would be circulated a bit wider, perhaps we wouldn't have to fight such poorly thought out, knee-jerk, paranoid reactions in many legislatures to limit flight areas and operations for hobbyists and researchers.

    •  I have been thinking about doing a diary on that. (2+ / 0-)

      Probably use some videos of the new FPV stuff. One of the guys just got a FPV rig.  You may or may not know it, but there are scale model kits of the Reaper and Predator.  

      Circle one over some town and monitor the 911 channel to hear the calls come in.

      acknowledge it.

      Didnt people protest and whine when the Machine gun was invented? In fact man has been inventing new ways to kill at longer and longer distances since a spear man went up against a swordsman, then came the bow & arrow.

      The Germans had RC anti shipping missiles in WW2, the US tested RC 500 pound bombs in 1947.
