Attracting an audience.

Been flying a bit recently and we keep attracting audiences usually of squaky annoying kids asking silly questions, usually:

WHATS THAT?

HOW MUCH DID THAT COST?

CAN I HAVE A GO?

DID YOU MAKE IT?

CAN YOU CRASH IT?

WILL IT FLY UPSIDE DOWN?

DOES IT HAVE A CAMERA ON IT?

HOW HIGH CAN IT GO?



etc. Also when I land they go running up to it with those razor sharp fibreglass rotors spinning at 3000rpm.


How do you lot deal with these annoying little pests?!?1

Fly some where less public  ::) although where I fly its classed as a public park its not used by many kids as it not exactly near any housing estates  ~~

Yeah but we are flying to take photos of stuff, not for fun - so if we gotta fly somewhere to get a photo and theres kids there, we cant go somewhere else.

I dont mind them I just wish they wouldnt run up to it when it lands, or stand so close when it takes off, or ask distracting questions when im trying to fly it lol. Its enormous, it would cut them in half if it crashed into them.

The flying your doing now though is practice isn';t it ? you could do this any where, but you could get some metal spikes and warning tape and set a square up that you could land in, with warning tape around it  ~~

XH558

I used to get this when we flew control line ... then you have a lethal weapon flying at very high speed in a 70ft circle ... same questions asked ...but then walking towards you when you are in the middle and the plane is above them  :blink :blink

So I soon learned to fly somewhere where the public are not - and now I fly as far away as I can from children  ;)

Iike everyone in this hobby I fly for pleasure and hate being disturbed by people if I';m out alone flying.  It is ';my time';  and just want some space (if you know what I mean). I avoid folk but like you have experienced have had folk make a B line for me to see what I';m up to and annoy me or scare me by creeping up and asking a question when I am engrossed in flying.  Flying with other rc flyers at a propper model flying field is great, if you can find one local of course.  We are in the process of setting up our own local club but for the last years we use a disused field that is out of public eye shot, however it is not perfect.  Failing that I will only fly in remote locations that I have spotted on drive outs or go into the New Forest, Hampshire as I live close to it and pick a quiet spot for a peaceful flight.

Oh yeah its definitely true im flying for practice, but im practicing taking photos with it, so being in the same field every time is no use. Its nice to actually get usable photos out of it too, means when we start doing this for clients we have some previous work to show.
