Yeah.. Where I live they don't even know what it is.. I asked in my town hall to the people that are working for my town and they didn't even knew if I need a license for it.. So I just fly, carefully in a park... Or in my own yard ofcourse..

The relevant Flight authorities should be contacted
and this public danger should be stopped and prosecuted
to protect his local population and genuine R/C fliers rights.

Dramada has been warned many times about his unsafe flying,
he has ignored all advice ...

Don't forget he runs a business , his interest is only money
Once he has ruined R/C flying for you/us, he will simply find another way
to charge for Photos and Videos.

Jessestr. stop changing your posts it's annoying

Yes, here they didn't know much about it either.... until some idiots started flying over other peoples property/gardens with cameras, invading their privacy..
Now it's getting regulated.. One day you will have to be certified to fly models, and you have to fly only models that you buy already certified by the authorities. That means you couldn't build your models anymore.. Sounds fun huuh??

got it up in the air yesterday. need to get the PID's dialed in. Very loose now, would like much tighter as I'm going to set this up for FPV. All I've done so far was turn P up by a few points. Flying with ACC and Mag Enabled.

You should probably ask in the Miniwii thread. I dont always keep pace here.... Sounds like the bootloader is acting up....but Email or PM me and we will work out a solution.
