  1. I got my wife a shield 9 back when they were $400. I carry it as much as she does. I'm really tempted to get another, given the current prices.
  2. Woohoo!
  3. Atta boy!
  4. I agree that the arguements follow similar lines, and with what you're saying. Lasers above 5mW are regulated here and in many other places. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laser_pointer
  5. Can you guys take the pointless bickering back to one of those other threads I ignore and leave this one as just mindless entertainment? Pretty please?
  6. I'll bet you'll have a hard time getting that solder hot enough with a heat gun. It'll heat a big area and perhaps also weaken the solder that's holding the sight on. You might be able to remove it with a soldering iron and wick. Otherwise you could polish it off with some fine sandpaper or they make chemical solder removers.
  7. Owning a gun is a Constitutional right. Flying a drone isn't. I'm sure jammers are among many options being evaluated (I'd guess transponders are too). But again, what does the drone do when the frequency is interfered with? If it goes back "home", where is home? What if it's on the other side of the airport? If it just lands where ever it loses signal, what if that's over a busy road? One of the biggest problems is there's no standard protocol for how drones are programmed, just like autonomous cars. The technology has advanced well beyond any sort of standardization, so you've got a wide variety of people developing their product more or less in a vacuum. Different models can react very differently to the same scenario. Everyone is trying to prove their product is best and there's no integration across platforms because profits are at stake.
  8. It can fly itself. It can change course, climb, descend, or proceed to a predefined location entirely on its own regardless of what might be between here and there. Prior to quadrotors with cameras, instances of RC aircraft interfering with real aircraft was effectively zero. I'd guess that's because years ago, RC aircraft capable of flying high and far enough to cause problems were only operated by folks with lots of experience. It took a lot of time and money to work up to planes or helicopters that nice. Generally they were only flown from purpose made fields well away from any sort of normal air traffic. Now any kid with a couple hundred bucks can buy a drone big enough to cause serious damage to a light aircraft and fly it from practically anywhere. They take minimal skill or experience to fly and the folks don't realize how fast they can get away from you. Its a concern. I agree that the act should be punished. Registering users is one way of determining who to punish. Maybe not the best way, but it's a start.
  9. It's the same as many other things, a few idiots ruin it for everyone. Though since yours is capable of autonomous flight, I'd argue that it's not a model aircraft in the traditional sense and does need some level of oversight/training beyond line-of-sight type model aircraft.
  10. Yep, let her choose and then supply a way to lock it up.
  11. Good for the D.C. Appeals court. I doubt that'll stick given the threat misused drones pose to private and commercial aircraft. If quadrotor users would abide by the long established rules for model aircraft operation, this wouldn't have been an issue. I suspect the FAA will redefine the rule to only apply to true drones, those capable of autonomous flight.
  12. A coworkers daughter is in ME at UAH at the moment. I can see why....
  13. Goose, it's time to buzz the tower.
  14. Congrats! I'll be there in a few years myself. Good choice in TTU, though I'm biased.
