People have been doing this for years. Videos all over youtube. The FAA is way behind the times with this announcement. :roll:

Check this out:

Some people need reminders and warnings and still they make dumb mistakes. I got that email also and I imagine it doesn't mean just quad rotors but UAV's (unmanned aerial vehicles) of all types. The FAA is currently making rules to restrict everything in flight. I predict there will be no hobby flying in the future. It will all be regulated strictly. :roll:

The FAA is like much of our government in how "fast" it approaches anything. Either they take a very long time,,, or the enact something w/o any studying. (Think Patriot act.)
People were putting different things on UAV's, posting pics, & videos,, so the FAA had to address it. Notice the date on this,,, just about a year ago when it was passed,, and now they are trying to "educimacte" the public.

Well now, since the 2nd amendment was meant to allow citizens to have weapons parity with the government, the FAA rule should be unconstitutional. Then again the government that the 2nd amendment is supposed to protect us from makes the rules on how we can exercise the 2nd amendment. Hmm, I wonder if the folks that penned the constitution and it's first ten amendments had that in mind. I doubt it.

I watched the fake Russian guy and his big drone with the machine gun and I have to say from the limited experience I have with flying drones there is no freaking way I'm going to put one on a drone. I do wonder what kind of explosive he put in those dummies that caused them to explode like they did.... and the car blowing up in the end.... just a little bit more explosive or in a different place and he would have been catching the trunk from that car.
