Participants (should) know the risks involved and have accepted said risks, generally within the confines of set minimum safety parameters. The uninitiated bystanders generally have no idea of the risks associated with model aircraft, from the near zero risk ofmicro foamies to the high risk of large IC aircraft, all most see are toy airplanes that look cool. Making the decision to expose bystanders to a level of risk they might otherwise not choose to accept is selfish and irresponsible. If/when an accident occurs it will fall, not just on the modeler involved, but all of modeling by proxy. I know this is mostly tongue-in-cheek (especially by the manner of speech used by SPF, which could be taken as offensive to a large population of Americans), but it can take on a life of its own if we are not careful.
