    I live about 20 miles outside the south entrance to Yosemite and am really disappointed that they didn't offer a compromise of some sort, that would allow flying cameras at certain photographic sites within the park, at certain times of the day or certain days .... etc.
    It all speaks to how easy it is for the powers that be to remove our abilities to fly and viddy at the places that make having these things as much fun as they can be.

    This is just the tip of the coming iceberg that will be even further spurned on by people flying over others, their kids and/or their property.
    The next months will see more of this type of banning, but for more reasons that we 'do' have control over ... if we don't start to get smarter about how/where we fly.
    Problem is ... there are too many morons that don't care, are too macho, or are just too plain stupid to take heed of what's coming our way.

    IDK about Yosemite, but in Maryland it has been illegal for many years to operate an RC vehicle in a park...even an RC car!

    (RC cars are always falling on people's heads or running over a toe...) :shock:

    It is against the law, in the "Free State" of Maryland, to smoke a cigarette in the same open-air park.

    Now they are talking about banning electronic cigarettes in the those parks.

    The bottom line is, some people are just assholes who feel the need to control everything... :twisted:
