Inspire 1 and Phantom owners:

Read this article and see where the media is going with a drone scare tactics!  This  could ruin this hobby for everyone and notice they use the DJI Phantom at the lead photo

Do you really see this as a threat to commercial aircraft?

The video  showing the mesh net using a drone to catch another drone had me thinking  "COMMENCE DRONE WARFARE!"

Rich, it is the media stirring up the pot. Indeed, the hobby had doubled and it isn't slowing down.

Yes, I do believe its a threat. But hell, a gun is a threat. A bird in the sky is a threat. So I do believe its getting blown way out of proportion.

The net idea reminds me of the evil child catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. IJust think of the money you could make in catching drones for the black market.

Don't feel bad. Haven't flown for while due to the weather. I fly now using my flight sim 7.5. And that's now fun either.

I live in CA not far from the the last fire. My brother in law is a police officer and is now in charge of getting UAVs for
The force. May the force be with you all. Anyway, during the fire it was stated that 4 or 5 drones got in the way of the
Water drops. The news loved it. My brother in law and some of their officers talked to the airplane pilot. According to
The evidence no drone could have flown in there that day due to a lot of stuff I won't list here. So he and the others
Are calling it a bogas report.

They do that to get UAVs into the news as being bad. CA is one of the best at doing it.

So just go fly and enjoy it. Where? I don't know, right now it seems everything is off limits and I really don't know how
Some of you get the great videos you do. Keep doing it though.

Thanks, I see the FAA ruling came out the next day or so after this stupid listing on Bing....  Liberal media and now see what happened.... plays right into the hands of the bureaucrats for easy target and more regulations

Bunch of crap! Enforcing is going to be one hell of a ride for the FAA. Unless the individual crashes into something. But seriously this is truly, truly ridiculous! I am now forced as a hobbyist to pay a fee or else! R/C cars will be next.

My guess:

Training and other hoops that will impede the normal hobby process

I know that I am sounding very negative ... sorry about that

Rich you aren't sounding negative, you are frustrated like we all are or most of us that is. Some think it's the best thing since apple pie. Rich do you have a 333?

No, currently I do not have the 333. I am a retired fixed / helicopter / Chief pilot CFI.... But I really am not supporting the need for a licensed pilot to fly the UAV.  This is over the top to me. Maybe, training and pass some tests showing your skill and knowledge would do the trick.

I can tell you for certain that I won't register. I fly on my land, that I own and has been in our family for generations. I don't need the FAA telling me what to do on my land either. We can thank all the dumb a@#$ out there who did stupid things.

But the thing is, do you think the idiots are going to follow the rules. No! just like guns. We good guys follow the rules but the thugs keep on shooting. How this ruling will help? It won't. And if the FAA post your details to the public? That is a question I would like to know for certain. What about a 16 year old kid that registers. That would be a violation right there. We should at all cost protect the children. Registering would be like registering weapons and making it public. It's no body's business. I made some typo's but in a rush.
