I had a thought of putting some more leds on my radjet and hitting their windshield at 120mph, that would show them :P and put me to jail, but thats not the point

Be greatful you can wash it off. While in college I was walking along a major four lane road with a friend. The locals didn't care for us much. Someone doing 45 mph threw out a paper cup half filled with ice. It hit me in the center of my chest. It knocked me clean off my feet and tossed me back 4 feet from where I was. The paper edge of the cup had cut a circular hole in my chest and bruised my sternum. Had trouble breathing for a week. Just move farther from the road!

I don't fly above crops. I have twice the field beside and behind me than the RC club field. When there is corn, soy, wheat, or any crop in it, I don't fly above it. Last year for example, I could not fly behind my house as corn was planted. This year, nothing planted so I can fly beside or behind my property. I stand on my own property though, not 20 feet into someone else's property.

I was just wondering what folks do? I see people mention flying above the corn field, soy field, and such all the time here. Those crops are someone's livelyhood.
we got permission from the farmer to fly in his wheat field, as long as we stayed in between the rows as much as possible.

120mph, huh? Would that be the same Radjet that recently lost its nose because it lacked the power to take off?

Assuming they're already driving 60-70mph, the radjet should be able to take up the slack.

When I fly around my neighborhood, I hear the "cool" kids yelling for me to crash my plane. whatever so long I crash into them...Or better yet, crash into their car.....when they complain, tell them not to throw stuff to distract you while flying and thses types of things won't happen.

I'm sorry to say this, but if you had of had something thrown at you from a city 40 miles south of me it would have been a hail of bullets! New Orleans, where my 22 year old son was gunned down in 2004 over $15.00 and a watch Dave/Zee
