    Looks like our hobby won't last, to many people want to fly higher, and are a bunch of idots and putting peoples lives and our hobby at risk. To many idiots bought lasers and in many countries are banned, our hobby, since craft like the DJI Phantom, and Ar Drone, etc have come out, and FPV gear to many idiots are buying them.

    It is these idiots who want to travel higher are soon to get our hobby banned.

    The ones who want to always go higher are as bad as people shining lasers at aircraft and actions like this banned lasers, High Flyers will get out hobby banned.

    The day an aircraft really hits one a drone and brings down an aircraft, that owner will be heavily dealt with by the law and swift laws banning our hobby.

    Mind you to many close calls will also see our hobby banned.

    They still sell laser pointers. And guns. And cigarettes.

    You're right about more and more idiots getting into the hobby though.

    Banning anything doesnt stop an idiot, an idiot can be dangerous with a rock, does that mean we need to glue down every rock incase an idiot somewhere decides to pick one up and throw it at something?

    Punish the idiots for their actions, not everyone else as everything possible can be dangerous in the hands of an idiot. The shame is that not only are the idiots dangerous but those that make laws are also mostly idiots thinking that banning normal people from any object or activity will stop idiots from being idiots.

    There are already laws against any stupid things you could do with an rc aircraft, already laws regarding privacy and endangering others or other vehicles use these laws fully to punish such stupidity. No need for new laws and banning everything just punish any idiots doing the wrong things rather then the 99% of others that cause no harm to anyone and respect others safety and privacy while enjoying what can be a great hobby.
