FPV flying banned in US and all EU countries

A FPV pilot and a "Real pilot" collided in air resulted in crash landing.



Now all FPV flying in the USA and EU are grounded/banned, Australia will soon follow.

Official documentation on this matter will be released later today or tomorrow.

This is really bad news
