Default Drone Technology

Short video of Drone technology. https://www.youtube.com/embed/mOBQXuu_5Zw


Drones have a lot of people worried about privacy, but they can be used for good as well as nefarious purposes.

Take, for instance, a spectacular display of drone technology by Intel Corporation (USA) involving 100 small aircraft being launched skywards in formation has earned a new Guinness World Record for the Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) airborne simultaneously.

Controlled on the ground by a crew using PCs with Intel software, the mass of drones lit up the night sky in sync to a live performance of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and executed a stunning light show resembling a fireworks display.

This took place at Flugplatz Ahrenlohe, Tornesch, Germany, in November 2015. The record was set in collaboration with Ars Electronica Futurelab to push the limits of the UAV industry and to show what UAVs can be used for.

This 100 Drone Synchronized Airshow Is The World's Largest, And Most Impressive

This teenager won $250000,00 in the inaugural World Drone Prix in Dubai. They're kind of cool when they're not used for crap purposes.

Up here they are talking about some very stiff fines for flying them where and when you shouldn't be. Last summer there were several instances where helicopters being used for fire fighting were grounded because some moron was flying his drone around in the same air space.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

As an owner of several Quad Copters (mistakenly called Drones) I have always flown responsibly and followed AMA and FAA guidelines. 2 of my sons also fly Quad Copters and follow the same rules. All of my Quads that require FAA registration are registered. All I'm saying as in most actions done by man there is always a very small percentage of people that will screw it up for everyone else.
By the way Drones are what the US military uses not Quad or Hex Copters Or Model Airplane that are flown by radio control by hobbyist.

It's always the few irresponsible morons who spoil something for responsible people.

Is UAV also acceptable?

My wife worked as an associate registrar at our community college, and had quite a few dealings with student complaints, etc. She said she spent 90% of her time with 10% of the students. Probably hold true in a lot of other situations as well.

The Feds want to register all of te quadcopters. It is nothing more than a source of REVENUE for them, and an exercise in CONTROL.

The story of fire helicopters being grounded is false. It is a lie. In order to get people to comply with some infringement on your Rights, the Feds must first set up in your mind the NEED to infringe on that right. Gun Control is a prime example, in which the Feds CREATE the problems and then tell us, "If you want to be safe, you need to forget about your Rights!"

Aw Geez, don't get me started!

Before you rush out to place your N-number on your quadcopters, think about this. If you are flying your q/c and someone SEES your N-number on it, they can then place YOUR number on THEIR quadcopter, and fly it into a power line or something. When the Feds investigate, guess who's door they'll be knocking on. Now YOU have to convince government zombies that it was not YOUR q/c that set the town on fire, or YOUR q/c that was peeking through a window.

People have been flying R/C airplanes and helicopters for decades. Ask yourself, "WHY NOW? Why does the gu'mint suddenly feel the need to force everyone to REGISTER their q/c?" The answer is found in the CAMERAS. The gu'mint doesn't like you having the ability to spy on THEM.

Frankly, when I first saw a q/c with a live down link camera, my first thought was, "These things will be buzzing outside of the girls dormitories at USC!"

They are much easier to fly than R/C airplanes, and WAY easier than flying a R/C helicopter. I can think of many good uses for them.
