EastBay RC joins FAA in encouraging n00bs to fly safely!

Dusted off the NoodleCopter for a bit of late night flying with the KPIX news crew, all in support of http://knowbeforeyoufly.org.  The reporter is Emmy award winner Joe Vazquez.  I thought he was smart, asked good questions, and had a good understanding of the issues involved in flying small aircraft.

There will be quite a few people getting drones, quadcopters, RC planes, etc for Christmas and trying them out for the first time.  If you're one of them, Welcome! We're glad you're here and hope you have a fun and safe time flying.  Check out the rules and guidelines... they're not complicated, they can keep you and your family from getting hurt, and make life easer for all of us if we're all careful not to cause trouble.

If you know of somebody just starting out, point them to some good resources (hint: EastBay RC!) for them to learn.

Couldn't get the video to embed, but here's the direct link:
