unfortunately, it is the bozo's why fly the UAV's IN THE LINE OF SIGHT at low level that ruin it for the competent operators.

Heh... my previous post was made after quite a few beers had been comsumed, but I uh... stand by my assertions! :P

You all should like this. I used Final Cut Pro to apply a "Ken Burns" zoom effect to the crash investigation video, making the footage far more interesting and usable. Since the original footage was shot at 4K reslotion, which is quite a bit more pixels than most people's displays can ... display ... the loss of picture quality during the digital zoom effect is very minimal.

BTW, the guidance documents are nebulous because the FAA and the model aircraft folks agreed that it was better that way back when it was set up. With the proliferation of UAS, this informal agreement may be on its way out, because there are folks who can't/won't abide by them.

That link's broken - the FAA has dropped the report. Here's a working link: Interpretation of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft

As long as we're updating a ~4 year old thread, the last FAA Reauthorization (2018) changed the FAA's charge to regulate UAS - Congress wants them to do more; there are already some rule changes being proposed (NPRMs) and the public comment period has just closed for the first set.

Bottom line, I would expect more clear UAS guidance/regulations to be coming soon.

This does not, of course, change Summit Point's current policy against UAS flying - that's the track owner's prerogative:
https://summitpoint-raceway.com/wp-c...egulations.pdf

"DRONES or any other remote flying type craft are not permitted to be flown at any time anywhere in the Park and will be confiscated."

And it looks like this once thought successful anti-drone strategy, is no longer a threat.

FWIW, Birds were always a stupid idea. I wonder how many they killed 'training' them. A modern drone is packing at least a couple hp worth of motors swinging super sharp carbon fiber blades. That is more power than a common circular saw. Any could easily sever a birds leg or worse. A coworker cut a good chunk off the end of his nose w/ a 'little' 250mm quad ~2yrs ago and was just a blunt end flexible plastic prop. I thought he was going to loose the whole tip. Lucky it wasn't worse (= eye). Props will fillet you as fast as any power tool.

I've never flown a drone. Now I know....
