Sorry for being on topic regarding drones. Maybe I should have talked about jay walkers instead.

Lets not be disingenuous, you came on here to voice your gripes about quadcopters. The first line of your first post stated you were really upset that the AMA grouped drones in with your toy airplanes, which had less to do with the thread topic than jaywalking would have.

And YET, I gave you Kudos and applauded you for following the rules. Shall I take them back?




What I posted is to hopefully inform Others who do not follow rules and therefore hurt our hobby.



BTW, when you post, it emails what you post, so deleting them wont make them go away.

This certainly is more exciting that what tires to buy for the nineteenth time.

Group hug?

I don't think I want a drone anymore.

How about two tires and a drone

Since this post started, I really have enjoyed the pictures that have been posted! So much so I have talked Santa Claus (wife ) into buying me one for Christmas (DJI Mavic 2). Digging deeper into where NOT to fly them, I was a little disappointed that All National parks are restricted areas for drone flights.


Here is a map I found that I hope will help keep me legal

Cool Map! Thanks for posting it. Looks like I live in a NO FLY ZONE... oh well. I guess I could keep it under the radar since the planes fly over my home to get to TIA. I have a little helo that I have been playing with when I have a few minutes, not too good at it and it won't fly too high anyway.

Some drone shots from our recent San Diego trip. One of Point Loma and Silver Strand the other of Chula Vista RV Resort with the neighboring park which was hosting a car show. The RV park is due to be closed next year and bulldozed while a new, better park is to be opened a little to the north.

Before the motors would start my drone warned me I was near a no-fly zone and made me promise I would fly responsibly and it wouldn't let me fly above 400' . I have a DJI Mavic Pro and DJI seems to be very good at keeping its pilots out of trouble.

Makes me feel better about drones when the manufacturers add this feature. Helps expand the hobby while not bringing it into the focus of the FAA and legal beagles. Fly responsibly and keep taking pictures!
