2. No flights within controlled airspace or within 3 miles of an airfield without notice to and permission granted by ATC.
3. All flights should occur with at least 1000' clearance from clouds
4. Depict all accepted RC fields in VFR Charts and note: Beware of model airplcraft within .3 nm of a depicted RC field and that model aircraft usually operate below 400 AGL but some as high as 1000' AGL.
Note these imply an understanding of the NAS structure and that the equipment posessed to do so is "legal" based on already existing regulation. (Think FCC regs)
Hope this helps in an intelligent conversation.
