If you fly any type of RC model airplane then you ought to be concerned that various politicians around the world are seeking to have “drones” banned. These people aren’t talking about the Predator or Reaper drones we see unleashing hellfire missiles at “insurgents”, they want to remove your right to fly any RC model with a camera — or even any model capable of carrying a camera.
We (the RC and especially the FPV community) need to stand up and be heard now, before it’s too late.
I’d love to hear from viewers as to how they think the RC community should respond to this threat to the hobby. Is it time to form a global FPV body which can bring the strength of numbers to weigh when challenging this threat?
And please… don’t call any FPV model a “drone” — it’s an RC model (whether it has a camera or not).
