You're busted for flying beyond line of sight Turbo!!!! First of all I welcome all American and European operators to this discussion. . Let's not bash each other and try and learn from each other and hopefully raise the bar in regards to UAV's.. this is what I'd say to the judge if somehow I ended up in front of one for flying beyond line of sight. .if that's possible when it's not against any law at this time.. It's a recommendation for us..so you wouldn't see a judge imo.. 1st of all ..I didn't do it.. hehe..just playing. . 2.. Currently these recommendations are under review and subject to change .. they say it will be law in a couple of years. .but who knows. . I'll follow the laws when they are actually laws and not recommendations. . 3...Reasons why I believe flying blos is beneficial. . I'd like to eventually start a drone consultant business. . my potential clients are ranch ,farm and private property owners... several friends own huge amounts of property and farm and raise cattle or just would like to fly around and watch over the property for verious reasons.. I'd like to see someone film the land speed record attempts in Bonneville. . not much of a chance hitting anything out there .. or long stretchs of flying near the ocean for example. Have you ever been in the country?? Miles and miles of open land..think how useful a drone would be to monitor crops or livestock. . 4.. More range = more reliability under adverse conditions or possibly when signal loss accrues. .the more range you have available grants you more time to recover signal and therefore regain control. . 5. They might change the rules to accommodate us if we can prove we can fly blos safety and responsibly.. 6..six really? ? The judge says.. You're free to go..Then says .."hey turbo. .what kind of drone is that??"" I rest my case ...turbo. .
