  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

US Drone collision with airliners study
« on: December 04, 2017, 12:32:21 »
Interesting.  A 1.2Kg quad simply bounced of the windscreen of an airliner travelling at 250kts.

I like this bit:
The computer simulations of the collisions themselves were validated by dropping the real-world drones from various heights, with the resulting smashes filmed on high-speed cameras and compared to simulator predictions. Researchers found a high match between simulated damage and actual damage.

So, how many Phantom 3s did they buy to drop from various heights? Can't help thinking that You Tube would have got some fairly similar footage  :laugh:

just aswell they did that study to dispell the belief that drones are bringing down airplanes left right and centre (The daily mail would have you believe its 10 a day :rolleyes:).

I mean, If they tried to use the chances of drones striking commercial airlines as an excuse to ban or heavily restrict them then were do they stop?

2014...... According to the FAA, there were approximately 11'500 bird strikes in the US alone on commercial planes.

....... go on then............. ban birds smart arse's ::)
