The truth about recreational drones and bombs
. All our strength will have to be applied to the task of unwinding the ridiculously overreaching regulation that applies to our hobby, of flying drones and radio controlled model aircraft. So in the series of videos that this is the first of im going to be providing you with the ammunition, you need to fight back to push back when someone makes allegations against the hobby in respect to safety or anything else. Im going to give you the the information, the knowledge, the weapons you need to push back so that we can get things right because too much of the regulation is driven by hysteria by hyperbole by misinformation. We will correct that, and in doing so, hopefully we will help protect the hobby now. One of the things i hear so often is that these things could be used to deliver bombs. People could put lets, say high explosive, see c4 splody stuff. You put that underneath here you fly it to the intended destination, drop it boom, bad things will happen and thats why people say we need more regulation, we need more restriction. Maybe we even need to ban these damn things before someone gets blown up, in fact on youtube and on twitter just around twitter. I saw this footage here, which is apparently a mexican gang using a drone and some splody stuff to attack a competing gangs campsite. You can see in this video things are being dropped from a drone and when they hit the ground boom, they explode so theres.
Your proof that we need to get rid of these things ban drones, look at that because they can be used to drop bombs thats. What people tell us now we need to push back. How can we push back against this? The video evidence is very clear. This is exactly what can be done. How can we defend that? Well, its actually a lot simpler than you think, because this is, if you examine the situation, we have a drone and we have splody stuff explosives right, put them together. Thats, a pretty dangerous combination, pretty dangerous combination. But if we have our combination and we take away the splody stuff, what are you left with? Were you left with a recreational multirotor drone? You can have fun with this. You can get wonderful pictures of the countryside. You can fly it around. You wont be injuring anybody, you wont be damaging property, you wont be causing any fatalities, its just a damn drone, a cheap plastic drone on its own. However, if you take our combination and you take the drone away, what are you left with yeah? You left with a pretty dangerous package. This can be set off that you, in fact, you can put this in a backpack. You can put it in the car, you can put it on a bicycle. You can leave it in a suitcase somewhere and it will still cause massive property damage, injury and worse, a bomb without a drone is still a bomb.
A drone without a bomb is just a drone, so we dont have a drone problem in this situation. We have an explosives problem that gang in mexico. The footage i showed you we shouldnt be worried. They had a drone, we should be worried, they had high explosives. How did they get their hands on that and in any western nation? The government must be doing their best to make sure that things like this dont get into the hands of the wrong people. Not things like this things like this. Unless someone has a genuine use for high explosives, they shouldnt have access to it, whereas a drone. Well, anyone can enjoy the pleasures of a drone without endangering people or their property. You cant set the stuff off unless youve got a genuine use for it. So we do not have a drone problem when it comes to dropping bombs on things we have a bomb problem. We have an explosives problem, so i would call on regulators before you start restricting these even further. How about you do something about the real problem? The explodey stuff thats the real problem, as i say, a drone without this is just a drone, but this without a drone is still a lethal package, so thats how we counted that particular one. If anyone hits you up with that one point at this video. Hopefully, i will explained it to them and they can go off to their local government and say we want better regulation of explosives because theyre not safe, theyre, not safe in the wrong hands, and there you go.
This is as the first of a series of videos ill be addressing all these things that the media and the public keep raising and giving you the answers. So you can combat those criticisms, those unrealistic criticisms of our hobby and id like at this stage, of course, to thank my patreon supporters. They make it possible for me to spend the time making these videos and if you want to join them for as little as a dollar a month, you can go to the description. Ive got a link in there. You know i just ive got to point it out, because it is my lifeblood now thats. What keeps me liquid keeps me going um and if youve got a comment, if you think this ive made a mistake, if ive got something wrong, go down to the commentary, but have your say or if you think this is a good response to that challenge then Say that too, and if you want to spread this video around, so people can see that we are actively engaged in countering all the misinformation. Do that as well. In the meantime, thank you for watching. Ive got many more videos like this planned and we will educate and inform the public, the regulators and the politicians to the point where theyll realize what theyre doing wrong great pushback of 2022 starts today, and it doesnt finish until we win thanks for watching bye. For now, overregulation is like a tumor, its killing a hobby.
