Main points – they hired expert from Exponent Engineering (formerly Failure Analysis Associates) who evaluated bird strike – aircraft data and finds small r/c aircraft are a minimal threat to aircraft based on the FAA’s own data. (The US Airways flight that landed in the Hudson River ingested a flock of birds, not a single bird.)
I jog past an airport that is routinely crossed by huge flocks of Canada geese and other large water fowl. There are flights of flocks with hundreds to a thousand or more birds that go across the airport and across the final approach course.

This is a fantastic deal – I own this camera and its my “walk around” camera – I love it. It shoots RAW, it shoots macro close ups, it has a fast f/1.8 lens, and a 1/1.63″ sensor, amazing low light capability, and it’s small, shoots 1080p video, and shoots much better photos than any “point n shoot”. Super convenient. I highly recommend this camera for anyone seeking that feature set.
Flying Magazine notes that many, many of today’s pilot’s developed their early interest in aviation through the model aircraft hobby. Increasingly draconian government regulations against “drones” threaten the entire model aircraft hobby, which in turn, threatens the future of the general aviation industry.
At this time, the use of recreational model aircraft for personal – and any commercial use – is buried beneath a threatening and oppressive rules regime with the United States.
I have suspended use of my Hubsan X4. I live within 5 miles of an airport and the FAA’s rules are a mishmash of contradictory statements, contradictions with Federal law and outright absurdities.
Diplopia is one such virtual reality game from San Francisco. The game, which is still in beta testing, is designed to help people with lazy eye amblyopia and crossed eye strabismus. It recently closed a $700,000 seed round, led by SOS Ventures.
While many will tell you that playing video games are bad for your eyes, the founder, James Blaha, fixed his own lazy eye with the game he invented with Manish Gupta.
