FAA has restricted all RC Helicopter flight in the USA airspace

Hello, this is Russell again, after many many many phone call’s and e-mail, thank you to all.  Here are the people whom have decided to stop all “commercial use” of an RC HELICOPTER or RC AIRCRAFT from flight anywhere in the USA, at any altitude.  Does not matter we maybe in a controlled space, on a film location set for a movie, flying at 40 feet above the grown, no where near an airport, NO FLIGHT OF ANY TYPE ANY WHERE, is the answer we got.

As I stated in a prior blog post, I have had several very long phone conversations with the folks at FAA in Washington DC & Southern California field office there is no budge in the conditions of RC for aerial photography , aerial video no matter how small scale.  The USA air-space is closed to all RC ‘s for any commercial use.

You want to hear it for yourself, give these folks a phone call, e-mail them, let them know how you feel about this, here are the links with phone numbers an e-mail address.  This is a copy of the actual letter sent to our company, too.

Make your voice heard, write a note today:   This is in my personal opinion a restriction of my freedoms in the USA to be in business !!!

Thank you to all for your support.
