Re: Just Another Nail In The Coffin...

As soon as the RCMP and transport Canada start leveling fines then that will get out pretty quick thru social media and things may change.

I know the last couple of summers during July 1st evening fireworks over the lake there is a drone flying around and thru them ; presuming taking pictures at night with hundreds of occupied boats below and nothing is done until someone gets hurt.

Even the Police are starting to use Drones as the newest technology in surveillance. I would have something ready to throw at it and bring it down if it got close to me and then wait for the owner to pay me a ransom for my troubles. LOL Cheers floyd

Re: Just Another Nail In The Coffin...

With all the hard work clubs and MAAC do to promote our hobby its tough seeing this kind of thing continue to happen. I don't blame the public for wanting this kind of behavior stopped. Sadly what makes quadcopters with fpv gear so amazing to fly also makes them a perfect tool to annoy folks when used this way.

Re: Just Another Nail In The Coffin...

Transport Canada won't even enforce the guidelines , they are lame ass unenforceable guidelines. When ouch comes to shove they just state no laws were broken. The guidelines are pointless and stupid and a waste of taxpayer's money.

Re: Just Another Nail In The Coffin...

A news story that is a BS news story. I read the article and realised that if this "pesky drone" were really as pesky as the townsfolk are complaining (meaning it is flying repeatedly around their houses) then it would take me all of 2 maybe 3 incidences for me to track down the guy doing it. That particular drone only flies for 10 maybe 15 minutes max. Considering its tooling around peoples homes for about half if not more of its flight time, it would not be hard to determine which direction it came in and which direction it returned to. Then its a matter of knowing approximately where to go next time you see it and then go there while its in the air. then wait for it to come down near where you are waiting and you will have the guy. then confront him (Starting politely, of course). Problem solved.

This CBC story just smacks of sensationalism just because they had nothing else to report. "oh look, drones are scary, drones are bad...Ooooohhhhhh....." I call BS!

PS- the cops cant do anything because he is not breaking any laws. But by the same token, if the locals are so upset, why aren't they finding the guy on their own?

Transport Canada had already levied one of their first fines about a year ago. Flyer was aware of the rules
but did it his way and to find out; it cost him over $1000. It's here and not going away and those that care to fight it will be the ones to find out the results and be the loser.

Go the MAAC.ca website and click on Transport Canada link at the top. Lots of good info for the responsible flyers.

Re: Just Another Nail In The Coffin...

A little tolerance would go a long way here .Is this a noise issue , you can hardy even hear the thing, looks to be a very small drone . Where I live there are snow mobiles racing back and forth all winter and 4 wheelers all summer and hunters shooting there guns but up here we respect your right to have the freedom to do so (I guess I could grab a hose and spray them every time they drive by but I might get shot LOL). If freedom was to rely on everyone liking what you are doing you would have none . Myself I could care less if he flew over my house as long as he had insurance to cover any damage he might cause . That is the problem with developed areas, people want to do there thing without accepting the needs of others,then the law steps in and nobody can do anything. I am not saying guys should not do things in a safe manner but I find more of these problems come from intolerance then safety .Roger

Even they are required to file SFOC when used. Most of their use if for mapping and photographing accident
scenes . They can now do in one hour what used to take them from 4-6 hrs.
