I coudn't agree more , well said.
I am relatively new to the sport and have had to learn all the saftey concerns by the seat of the pants. our field is wide open and very few spectators. Our cars pose the most concern for us ,as they are parked at the end of the runway for now as the parking area is still wet. Yes I know that this is un acceptable to most of you but if you want to fly thats what you have to deal with
As of today we have not had any major ( or minor ) accedents with people or property, just some pesky trees, and they come out on top every time.

just remember, we are all in this together,so keep your stick on the ice.

Not assuming the worst, just hoping it doesn't happen.

Not JiM Jim, "JM" = just my 2 cents...

Of course I dont want it to happen again. Thats why I think I am a very safe modeler and want others to be also.

My point is one serious/fatal acident does not automatically deem what we do "unsafe" as a whole. Some of us believe one bad event and the whole thing will come to an end, lose our insurance, etc, etc. I think it is not going to come to that. Look at all the other things (I used snowmobiling as an example but could have easily said many other sports/hobbies) in which there have been and will continue to be many fatalities per year.

I am in no way trying to belittle the event - you guys should know me better than that. BUT at the same time, without knowing what happened 100% it may have been a fluke accident, or one where the victim had something to do with it as well as the pilot, etc. We shouldnt jump to conclusions thats all.

this accident..........

..if you read, had occurred in an actual designated R/C area of a public park where the people strayed near the area and were hit. It was just as if it had occurred on the field itself. No area is immune to accident as you have seen on your own field. The field should have been possibly roped or made inaccessible except to those familiar with the dangers of a plane moving to minimize public traffic. The responsibility is up to the field management to see that this is done. It's unfortunate, but can still happen at ANY time when safety is compromised. If it occurred outside the designated area, then the pilot should have had better control within the confines of the designated flight area.
