doritos has a contest for people to send in an ad for the superbowl. they pick 5 winners and the max prize is 1 million dollars (said while doing austin powers imitation voice and gesture)
We didnt win, but we had fun making it and its gotten me work and good reviews (most places).

Well, well, well ernie....
one of my friends here has shared something with me that has me very confused.
After reading your post above in which you called me irresponsible, I just cant believe that you are doing exactly what you criticized me for doing.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...&v=sVDFvDSEy1E

you are flying over the heads of a lot of people in this video. (nice video BTW)

i dont have a problem with your work, and i was actually looking to shoot some half-pipe stuff here locally. your quad seems to be a nice video platform. and since i havent heard any news reports of drone/ski accidents, i assume you are doing your work safely.

what a wonderful world it would be if we could share experiences and learn from each other. we can start by honestly acknowledging the risks we are ALL taking and share tips and lessons learned.

I am not ashamed of what i do. Fly well and safely. I will too.
(funny how our discourse has turned out being relevant to this thread after all LOL)

Your "friend" is mistaken. It is funny that you are trying to track down my videos though, lol.

RCAP is legal

just been hired by a major national company for some promotional aerial photography. i have gotten insurance and i'm about to hit the road.
RCAP is not against any law on the book anywhere.
if anyone thinks it is, why is the LAW never referenced? i'm not afraid to fly and take pictures.
i'll be posting more pics soon.
oh yeah, just had an aerial video picked up (purchased) by a regional blog site who i work for regularly (they have bought 7 so far)
last nite we continued our winter-fun-flys (for profit) at the local FAA airport.
we are being given a hanger there for this RC event.
have fun everyone and keep flying safely and profitably !!

i think it would be a good solution if something like this could be integrated into ground systems for flying anywhere near NAS.
It could give alerts for approaching traffic.
it wouldnt cost as much as a transponder though.
you would have to avoid the traffic, but that should be the modelers responsibility anyway (not the plane's)
