Always nice to see it getting done right.

You must post. )

Even they don’t have clear instructions on dealing with drones....an example he gave me is when somebody calls the center to get permission to operate a drone within ***x miles of the airport they are told not to give them permission but just confirm the use of a drone in the area since they dont want to be liable. They are told to say “ok we acknowledge” and that is all...as long as you dont enter class B airspace they its basically a free for all as VFR rules apply


But until i see BRG getting charged with operating a commercial drone without a proper license i wouldnt worry too much about it. But if BRG needs some bail money ill help him get out of the slammer cause i would miss reading his posts on CT

But if you would like to keep the discussion going technically you are absolutely right in the fact that You need to have a commercial drone license to do anything except for hobbyist/recreational use

But your claim was local cops have no jurisdiction. He showed you where that was not true.

Was gonna bust your balls on your deck thread, but didn't. I know you're also keeping that thing under 400' AGL and in line of site only right? I fly RC sailplanes and the drone thing has really turned the hobby on it's head over the last several years. Lets just say that your pics you posted are self incriminating evidence that you're not following the "rules and guidelines". Please everyone, be responsible, know the basic rules and be smart about it.

BS. It's a hobby nothing more nothing less. I certainly don't use it for any marketing of anykind and never made a done from it not well I ever want to or need to. Really just for this site and my family on Facebook. You are in no position to tell me how it is.

I wasn't addressing the commercial aspect, but the basic safety guidelines and rules. Just asking everyone to keep it safe and responsible so as to not screw it up for everyone else in the rc flying hobby. The drones have really brought a spotlight to the flying community and not exactly in the best of ways.

Re: Drones


okay....


Then were you or were you not over 400' AGL in several of your pics? No spotter to maintain visual contact while you were watching your screen to line up your shots.



Be smart about it is all I'm trying to say.



I don't give a crap about the commercial aspect what so ever. I was doing aerial photography commercially before the drone thing hit and the FAA took notice and stepped in.

Re: Drones


So, nothing in the $300 range identified, but A&E gets temporary custody of BRG's.

Meanwhile, contractors are hobbyists, law breakers, ignorant, etc.

I'm guilty as charged, but I don't use a drone.

Re: Drones


Here is the one guy that was penalized for not having a proper commercial certificate. He received a warning letter urging him to get a commercial drone license. It showed the cops clearly had no authority to charge him with anything

I’ll say it again that local police have absolutely no authority when it comes to general aviation licensing. They can’t inspect your airplane for airworthiness and They have nothing to do with your license


“Jeffrey Slentz flew a drone over Kauffman Stadium in Kansas, Missouri, in order to capture some impressive aerial footage for a hip-hop music video. When the police tracked the DJI Phantom 3 drone landing by its owner, the officer was reportedly “pretty upset.” “He was looking for any way to penalize or arrest me,” Slentz claimed. “He made several calls to the FBI and the FAA.” One week later, Slentz received his punishment—in the mail. An official warning letter arrived at his residence, urging him to acquire a drone license.”

That just means they didn't want to deal with it. I've had the same thing with criminal trespass notices, being hit by a truck, dogs running at large, etc.

If they don't want to deal with it, little or nothing happens.

Mine was back when the technology was not as user friendly. The drones of yesterday needed paired each time. I forgot to pair it and had a fly away at high speed. Today's drones are extremely difficult to crash.
