    FPV: Negative Uses

    So, what are they, and are they just feared or have there been actual instances of such uses?

    me, i'm just curious. and, no, i am not looking for new good ideas for bad uses. i'm lily white and clean as a whistle. i swear it!

    Welcome to the Lab erii, you should post a new thread in the Pilot's Check In section to introduce yourself!

    We don't like to discuss negative uses of our toys here, we'll leave that to your imagination.

    Sitting on the bench not being flown = Negative

    I'm with Vitamin say hi in the welcome thread and look to some positive uses like having fun. There's enough dumb imagination out there to come up with hollywood story lines on what could be done that will scare those who don't know... the reality is positive uses far out weight negative ones and we need more of those shown.

    FPV: Negative Uses

    Agreed... My cynical side also says new user with 1 post starting topic like this = reporter looking for ideas for a publication, but then I am a cynical chap!

    The potential negative uses are obvious and aren't worth discussing in my opinion. Most of the things we have around us in modern life have potential negative uses if a person is feeling so inclined, to pretend otherwise or focus on FPV is just scaremongering and we don't need that in my honest opinion.

    QFMFT.

    My first thought was FAA/AMA looking for excuses for legislation, but I'll also be the first to admit I'm a cynical asshole as well.
    Far better is it to dare mighty things, even though checkered by failure; than to take rank with those who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

    Would this count as a "negative use"
