In reply to King Kade any ref to how a piece of RC equipment might be weaponised is not relevant to the core problem are RC modellers being targeted as possible terrorists if so why??

No they are not, the main and immediate problem is the public PERCEPTION of "drones" being a menace to civilisation (if you believe the more lurid media) - In 99% of cases through flouting of the existing laws by (I very much hope) pilots who are not part of the main stream RC Flying Hobby - I would expect any club finding a member taking part in this would expel him immediately (and it has happened at one of the clubs I am a member of)

The main question is "how do we defend and promote safe and legal RC flight" in the face of the "overspill" negative publicity these "drones" are attracting at the moment

I would suggest that a few more paragraphs are removed...a grid of quods on a take off flight path.... It may be stated on a Birmingham uni report somewhere... But this website is easier research from someones bedroom....

KingKade, if you'd bothered to read my post and follow the link to the Daily Telegraph article, you'll find that I'm quoting from that newspaper. I didn't dig it up from some Birmingham Uni report! I'd also suggest that, august though this forum undoubtedly is, readership numbers are unlikely to match those of the DT....smile

My post was purely to illustrate what those who are close to the decision-makers are thinking and writing....smile o
