Relax. There are a lot of reasons this type of attitude makes no sense.Surely large scale violation like this is the type of thing Aeroscope should be deployed for - to ID, catch and prosecute.
It also proves this is why we cant have nice things. The drone community as a whole is too immature to self police.
Exactamundo!Relax. There are a lot of reasons this type of attitude makes no sense.
Same has been said about guns, motorcycles, cars, alcohol, airplanes, and so on.
There will always be criminals using innocent devices to commit crimes. I cant think of one thing that has been banned because of that.
That’s photoshop for sureReally doesn't suprise me --- hot air balloons are like big blue whales in the sky and drones are like remora fish that are magnetically attracted to them and want to get REAL close.
Even this crazy paramotor kid can't keep away from the balloons:
I agree, on the other handIf "hundreds" violate some rule, and nothing serious happens, then the rule is unfair (or fullish).
A few years ago, before drones,I looked into the stats. In 25+ years there were only 4 deaths associated with RC planes & helicopters. Only one of those was a spectator. Has anyone been killed by a drone yet?Exactamundo!
Add up all the people killed by guns and cars in the last 10 years and then compare that to how many deaths caused by drones --- then we'll all see what items need to get banned --- and they sure aint drones.
This is why I would love in all GPS based drones from all manufacturers to come with some kind of nfz installed and updated automatically to keep the morons that wants to fly in prohibited areas grounded.If you read, or listen, to this report you may note that these incidents were technically a violation of the four mile exclusion zone but none of them were serious enough for the distance they flew into the exclusion zone to be noted. All of these crossings were very likely accidental and small in distance. This report is very much like a report that half the cars on a road were exceeding the speed limit.
