Those who whine about others having fun

Chew the fat on any non-RC subject. It's a free-for-all but common rules of decency do apply so act like adults and don't embarrass yourself by trolling or cuss'n.

Problem with this type of person is that they don't go away, unfortunately they have the uneducated/funless masses behind them.

I think when it comes to litigiousness in the USA, "Wierd Al" says it best in this song: http://goo.gl/XjnSZ

Hmmm let's think about that video...

AXN well above head height - check

Those supposedly 'in peril' wearing full body armour while travelling at speed defying gravity, karma and the elements - check

Stubbing one's toe on the newly purchased lounge suite likely to cause far more damage than any hit from and AXN - check

An opinionated spoil sport who has nothing better to do than whine about the fun others have because he's projecting his bad sense of self onto Bruce - priceless! :roll:

You surprise me Bruce. I was sure you had an agreement not to fly over the other venues. I have seen a couple of instances seeing you doing so but assumed you had made arrangements with them to do so. It's not as if you make a habit of it and usually I can hear the carts in the background but very rarely see any planes over them.

After watching Utube I often wish we enjoyed the same laws as the US. They fly almost anywhere they wish. Using the streets they live on as runways, using supermarket and factory carparks and even local parks. Here in Australia we can be fined for flying a slow flyer in a massive playing field completely devoid of any other humans. I'm even wary of taking my Canadair to our local lake. I'm certain someone will complain about the noise of the electric motor completely drowned out by dozens of weekend lawn mowers.

There are professional complainers out there, a club I was a member of years ago had a glider competition, all launches were by highstart. We were lucky that day, a local council member came to see what all the complaints lodged against us were about. He saw how professorially we ran the comp and left happy with us we even gave him the controls for a few minutes, he was impressed. Monday morning a noise complaint was made about us again with the council rangers and was pasted onto the our visiting council member. The complainer was told to pull his head in and never to call the rangers again. Fate was on our side that day.
Many Thanks,

Dave W.

Well, sirs, I am a proud outlaw flyer and the more I hang around here the more I think I'm doing the right thing!

Where did you get that from? Possibly it depends on your local council? AFAIK it's fine to fly electrics in parks as long as there's not a "No model planes" sign.

I had a quick look through the mountain of Queensland legislation...

But in the end I only found this from CASA

http://www.casa.gov.au/rules/1998casr/101/101c03.pdf

If anyone has something more up to date let me know but from what I can see it looks good so long you are not flying above 400ft within 3 nautical miles of an aerodrome (without prior approval) and,

are in an area at least 30m clear of persons, vessels, vehicles or structures

As I said before I found no local bylaws for us here in Cairns. NSW could be a different situation though. Isn't there a bylaw limiting the number of helium filled balloons that can be released into the atmosphere?? ;)
