i dont think this post will make much diff to the faa ruling, and even if it is banned, do you really think that the thousands of fpv flyers will abide by the rules! i dont think so! i could post car crashes, will cars be banned, or real plane crashes, will planes be banned, accidents happen, we didnt hurt anyone other than ourselves.

IF anything, this just proves that foamies aren't going to kill everyone. Looks like you were able to walk away. Did you need stitches?

Also, call me sadistic, but seeing you fall on your butt made me chuckle a little bit.

Hope you're alright and that you return to the sky soon!

Nothing gets banned. Do you want me to post some pics of car, plane, helicopter, truck, and motorcycle crash bodies? Accidents happen. Should we give up the things we love/ get forced to give up things we love to do, and just live in a padded cell? I am certainly not. They can ban FPV all day long, and I just keep flying FPV until my batteries puff up a little.

I understand, I doubt I will be giving up FPV either. My point was that these things tend to get shared millions of times and end up scaring the folks that are already afraid of "Drones".
I am always telling the typical "Phantom 2 flyer" to use more judgement and not to bring anymore negative opinions to the hobby. That's all.

It wasnt me it was my friend that got hit, and yes hes ok, a bit sore but raring to get back out there, as we all say, accidents happen, we wont be giving up fpv any time soon, ban or no ban, we fly safe away from people, and we enjoy it, why the hell would we listen to a stupid ruling, give it a few more years and no doubt air will be banned.

I think what's needed is that the word needs to get out some more to the irresponsible, that there is a jail sentence for that, and/or a gigantic fine is due, if they recklessly endangering someone or something with their RC model. As soon as one breaks these existing laws, like flying where they shouldn't, then they should get immediately arrested for reckless endangerment followed by some jail time to make an example. Only this will make them sane again, and scares all the other morons so they don't do stupid stuff.

people all around the world will do stupid things, but with various objects, guns, knives, bows and arrows,etc! you name a hobby or anything else that isnt abused by the minority?? governments abuse, police abuse,police still abuse, governments still abuse, and trust me they endanger and kill more life in this world than anything! guns, knives arnt banned, yet i bet they endanger more life on this planet that any rc plane, quad, what ever flys, that the normal people of the world just have, as a hobby, to pass a few hours of there lives having fun, this hobby has been around for years, so has fpv, its not a new thing, and its not getting smaller, im new to this hobby, a year odd in, so i dont know all the rules and regs, but this world belongs to the people, we are here a short time, and while im here i intend to enjoy it, fpv is something i enjoy, and i intend to keep doing it no matter what rules are put in place, i will fly safe, as i have been, i will do my best to not injure anyone, but i will fly, its always the do gooders of the world who have to speak out, and point the finger and have something to moan about, but i doubt there whiter than white, and if they like moaning then join some political group and go lay down your power.

Lot to be said for the pusher style planks, would have a bruise, but skip the lacerations.

Holy snapping duck sh17 dude! That was bloody nasty! You are so damn lucky it only cut your head open, you could have literally lost both eyes and if it hit you in the neck/throat area god knows what would have happened!!!

Great. Just what we want running around on the internet. People who don't understand this stuff see that, and substitute - in place of your self destructive friend's head in the photo - a mental image of their small child's head. Please just stop this crap. It doesn't matter if you do it out in the middle of nowhere. Infecting the internet with this stuff makes it part of the public consciousness, completely eclipsing every bit of effort safe, conscientious RC people put in to prevent the impression that this is what happens. Stop it.
