    More to the point hillary is in front of the other 3, the only one smiling, and the men look apprehensive.

    It's a sad thing, but these subtle little pokes at the public's collective brain actually work.

    That's old news, anyone remember the Times OJ cover?

    News or what pushes itself out as news in the U.S. and the advertising that drives it, where materialism and gimme now has been honed down to a level of Psyops, has become an industry that makes Goebbels look like an amateur.

    Too many people in the U.S. believe they are being informed, but fail to understand the many words with nothing stated that fills the news cycle here in the U.S. is really not news.

    It's actually a tease for the materialistic advertising coming up next.

    Aren't you drone racers concerned at all about the upcoming Part 107 and 101.41 rules? Since the FAA interpreted their special rule for model aircraft to preclude the use of goggles (since, according to them, it obscures the operators vision) meaning racing would not fall under the upcoming 101.41 for hobbyists, but rather 107, which says, among other things that you won't like:

    With vision that is unaided by any device other than corrective lenses, the operator or visual observer must be able to see the unmanned aircraft throughout the entire flight in order to:
    (a) Know the unmanned aircraft’s location;
    (b) Determine the unmanned aircraft’s attitude, altitude, and direction;
    (c) Observe the airspace for other air traffic or hazards; and
    (d) Determine that the unmanned aircraft does not endanger the life or property of another.
    This would effectively kill FPV racing, in a legal sense.

    It appears to me that "the operator or visual observer" language would allow for FPV if there are observers. It would certainly prohibit individuals from flying without an observer but racing with a observer would be allowed. That is my reading. Anyone else?

    Racing will find an exemption if it catches on enough, the reason I think this is it is primarily in a controlled environment, low altitude, low weight.

    Well put, just bumped into this post.

    If you watch Charpu at the aforementioned nationals you will see him holding back from saying "this is a joke". Winning was not crashing. The course was set up wrong (and very 2 dimensional).

    I don't race. No interest. Refused several sponsorships and denied affiliation with any league. The "racers" I have been around are overwhelmingly intoxicated (high and/or drunk when flying) and unsafe. And they have no professionalism. That is as nice as I can put it.

    Feel free to reach out and talk more, again well put. FPV racing is such a joke.
