“I have been flying fixed wing for more than sixty years and during this time I have mostly only flown at club sites and there has always been a self imposed code of safety and thankfully accidents have been very far and few between and consist generally of personal injury sustained whilst starting motors and the like and I have never witnessed any one being hurt or killed by being struck by a model. I take deep offence at being curtailed or stopped or regulated from my hobby/sport for what ever reason as I and millions of others around the world have done without impeding or putting others at risk. Simply ban or disassociate the FPV and DRONE flyers from the traditional model flyers activity where we have existed for over seventy years without trouble or fuss. It should be remembered that many famous aviators etc started out as modellers.”
