I don't normally get involved in anything other than tech matters, but in this case, as a moderator I feel the need to ask, flycrazy put a handle on your comments.
You posted your video in a public forum, so once there any replies have equal validity.
In some of the points, however, I have to agree. Regardless of the fact you may have flown there for a long time and with the season there may be a lower likelihood of anyone else being present not directly involved in the activity, from the video it appears you are flying at a public access area. This creates higher risk than otherwise would be the case in a more controlled environment.
In the matter of risk, your video shows you taking off towards the cameraman and a second spectator with little room for error or allowing for equipment failure. The same spectator also appears during the landing very close to your approach path and landing zone.
MAAC rules and flying field specifications exist to protect participants and spectators in this activity. If not flying under that banner or at least responsibly then ANYONE doing so puts themselves and possibly others at risk. It also places our hobby in general under threat.
There are also the legal ramifications to the landowner.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!
