Lack of concern for safety is not synonymous with having fun. Your premise is a fallacy.

Moderators, please close this troll's thread.

I reckon if you can't get a handle on one of those...consider taking up stamp collecting.
That swings a big prop, so please be careful, I would hate for you to learn the hard way. But, if you do get bitten, post some pics.

Maybe not prison, but surely you could be charged with willful negligence or gross negligence as by flying in a high traffic area you disregarded known safety issues.

They may be toys, but they can and have killed people http://jalopnik.com/5617310/video-cr...ver-air-rights

Actually a fully charged lipo and prop spinning full speed will not cut you, I've tested this with a guy out at a field we fly at cause his little dog likes to chase his Champ and jump and grab it out of the air. So barring the dog getting the prop in his eye, it's pretty much safe.

It is funny, I have a short video of it that I grabbed with my phone. He hates that plane. Oddly when we leave planes on the ground other than walking up and giving them a sniff he is uninterested in them until he sees that yellow champ.

Where is the fun in that?

I flew my UM Extra right into a guy at the Wings Over the Rockies model airplane expo. He goes "ouch, I hope you have insurance" and of I said "yeah I have insurance" but nobody was hurt, not even the plane

That's what you get for trying a flat spin in a 10-foot box

I honestly don't know why they let us fly in the freekin museum in the first place. I've bounced a plane off the b-1 bomber more than once.
