That is the question of the decade, and is something that I ponder over every day. For a long time I have been meaning to start a thread on this important subject and your post prompted me to finally do it. It started at noon yesterday and there have already been 36 replies, so obviously there are many people interested to know the answer to that question.
There are several people on the Radian and Radian Pro threads who regularly post videos of flying high over a city. That means they (we) are flying over buildings, roads, cars, and people. If something goes wrong, there could be trouble. Also, every day hundreds of planes filled with people fly over the city of Vancouver. If anything goes wrong, there will be big trouble. Here is the link to the thread...
Although this is important for all types of model planes, it is particularly applicable to the Radian and RP threads. These are the two planes that are the most likely to be found flying high over populated areas, and encroaching into airspaces that go beyond the confines of the park they were launched from.
