Maybe.....

If Trappy was paid by the US to train their own UAV operators there wouldn't be so many 'friendly fire' incidents and innocent civilian deaths.

If the so called 'friendly' types start using technologies it is never long before 'the other side' catches up.

whatever happens ... The terrorists have won already. Everybodies lives have been effected from your lack of civil liberties, to covert data collation. If anyone thinks its just security at airports and what you can take on board a plane they are sadly mistaken! 'You have nothing to fear but fear itself'.

Where there is fear there is profit.


Trappy... Keep doing what you are doing, in the manner that you do. Many of us realise you are not the reckless flyboy some people portray you as. You are an inspiration to many of us. And to see the look on many peoples faces I have shown your vids to who barely understand model planes let alone FPV I dont think it will be long before you get hired to shoot the opening scenes to a Bond movie in 3D with the twin Go Pro housing!

Whilst I might not enjoy the way you and Sander sometimes behave on the internet you get my vote every day for the way you do what you do and the videographic results

Sorry. Just had to get that rant of my chest!

Well done trappy great video some people are just paranoid about stuff

Fpv is strictly regulated here in the uk to only los and buddy box incase something goes wrong

But hey. Rules are made to be broken

Let the paranoia commence :P

That takes some guts and proves that not all police and public workers are good.

wow trappy, msnbc. Awesome!!! You've really made yourself famous in the last year here. To think it started with a set of R-visions, pinnicle video capture and a maxiswift...

Wow!

Trappy and gang, all I can say is Wow! World wide news...

Now gotta work on getting that FPV camera out of the FOV of the GoproHD and it would be perfect.

You're famous.

Maybe a bit offtopic but where is your quadcopter?
Did it die or something? I would love to see a real trappy video from a quadcopter.

It was great MSNBC portrayed it in a positive light, No mention of people running for cover or terrorism. Good job Trappy. Now people like you again...lol

I saw the Drudge link too...I was like "RC airplane buzzed statue of liberty", that kinda sounds familiar. And of course it was none other than Trappy!
