[TC] FAA Appeals Commercial Drone Ruling, Cites Safety Concerns - Page 4

post #31 of 37
Let's be clear what's going on here.

NTSB said, basically, "There aren't any rules, so there aren't any prohibitions."

FAA came back and said whoah whoah whoah, let us set up rules first.

Yes, the big bad gummint is the one who gets to regulate air traffic. FAA is very good at it. FAA is not saying that drones are banned, just that they want to have rules in place for their use. And EVERYBODY should want that.

Yea....

Wait, don't tell me you missed the signup for the "Cop In a Pocket" program! Ah man, that was so important, you always carry a cop in your pocket for safety!

Good thing I live on the plains. Now I only need to worry about a delivery drone flying in to a wind turbine.

This is a technology I continually facepalm when people try to regulate and state opinions about when they know nothing about the tech. I use these "drones" daily in my real estate video productions (done about 40 homes with my custom built aerial platforms) with exactly 0 property damage and technical malfunctions. These kiddies that put together home depot specials with cameras taped to the bottom that go out and cause property damage only to have some moron New York Times reporter sensationalize the story in newspapers giving everyone a false impression of the technology is driving me insane. If they applied the same restrictions they give model airplanes and leave this stuff out of the media it would make people like me very happy.

As far as the Amazon drone delivery, that will never happen for too many reasons to list in this post. They are just trying to ride the drone bandwagon and are unintentionally making life difficult for everyone operating these things responsibly.

House I shot with my SCARY DRONE 2 days ago:

 

 

Agree

 

I have gotten into FPV since last summer, but have been flying models many years.

I believe the law pasted here in Germany last year is, you can fly FPV, but you need a spotter with you, model/multi rotor must be within eye sight of the spotter and not over 300 meters high(can't remember, might be 300 feet).

Recently got a Gimbal for my GoPro and will be testing/using that with a DJI F550 this summer, it's not professional gear, but not rubbish either and I have a lot of fun. 

 

 

 

 

As you see, I obey them FPV laws  :h34r-smi on all fronts.

how do they describe commercial drone? One you make profit with or as I remember something regarding weight, like over 50lb.

Using a multirotor aircraft to do anything that makes you a profit. So, if you have an RC helicopter, then its all good.

Just like how provate pilots are instructed to stay above 500ft around urban areas, somethine similar will need to be established for drone fly-zones. The FAA's "preferred" guidelines pdf @ source has highlighted most of the problems associated with commercial drones already:

"a. Select an operating site that is of sufficient distance from populated areas. The selected site should be away from noise sensitive areas such as parks, schools, hospitals, churches, etc.

b. Do not operate model aircraft in the presence of spectators until the aircraft is successfully flight tested and proven airworthy.

c. Do not fly model aircraft higher than 400 feet above the surface.
When flying aircraft within 3 miles of an airport, notify the airport operator, or when an air traffic facility is located at the airport, notify the control tower, or flight service station.

d. Give right of way to, and avoid flying in the proximity of, full-scale aircraft. Use observers to help if possible.

e. Do not hesitate to ask for assistance from any airport traffic control station concerning compliance with these standards."


air traffic controllers might not be too happy about having more crap thrown at them, but it would be averted if the delivery stations were zoned up properly around controlled airspace. I'd be more afraid of neighbors flying a drone into my garage to "borrow" my tools.
