This is not my slide, but I might as well pretend like it is because I say the same thing all the time :-D

Plus that there are also always updates to the games, that only trigger when you pi the disc in, so for that half an hour you had to okay a bit, you can enjoy the download bar animation... Then turn off the TV because it's still not done, when you come back to turn it off, the are 3 more that you have to approve one by one as there is a ToS update...

Explored Glenn C. Hilton Jr. Memorial Park with Jenna, Logan, and Bailey this morning. Logan loved feeding the ducks and walking around the bridge paths. I'm pretty sure Bailey enjoyed it too.

For maximum security, I use a randomly generated, 64-bytes-long character sequence as WPA password for my home WiFi network. As you can imagine, that creates somewhat of a challenge whenever I want to share my internet connection with guests. Here's a cheap, practical, and yet stylish way I've come up with to deal with this problem. The main ingredients are:
- a small MUJI magnetic photo frame,
- a writable NFC tag,
- a printer,
- a pair of scissors.
Android users can associate to my network simply by tapping the photo frame, thanks to the NFC tag embedded within. IPhone users can instead flip it around and use a QR code scanner app to read my wireless password. Either case: no tedious, error-prone typing involved!

http://www.faa.gov/news/press_releases/news_story.cfm?newsId=16474&cid=TW223

http://www.faa.gov/about/initiatives/uas/media/model_aircraft_spec_rule.pdf

Summary: According to the FAA, FPV flying in the US is not legal, even with a spotter.

Specifically:
"Under the criteria above, visual line of sight would mean that the operator has an unobstructed view of the model aircraft. To ensure that the operator has the best view of the aircraft, the statutory requirement would preclude the use of vision-enhancing devices, such as binoculars, night vision goggles, powered vision magnifying devices, and goggles designed to provide a “first-person view” from the model.

Such devices would limit the operator’s field of view thereby reducing his or her ability to see-and-avoid other aircraft in the area.  Additionally, some of these devices could dramatically increase the distance at which an operator could see the aircraft, rendering the statutory visual-line-of-sight requirements meaningless. Finally, based on the plain language of the statute, which says that aircraft must be “flown within the visual line of sight of the person operating the aircraft,” an operator could not rely on another person to satisfy the visual line of sight requirement. [...] While the statute would not preclude using an observer to augment the safety of the operation, the operator must be able to view the aircraft at all times."

My reaction:
On the surface, that seems rational. Where it falls apart is that FPV flying doesn't necessarily have to be done in locations or at altitude where such oversight makes any sense at all.  I am 100% on board with the idea of preventing people from operating R/C aircraft without LOS at high altitudes in places where I might be in my Cessna.

But does that mean it should be illegal to wear FPV goggles and fly around a field, away from any airports, at < 200 feet elevation? If my Cessna is ever there, it's because I'm doing an emergency landing. Randomly encountering an R/C aircraft (or bird, or baseball) is fine with me.

Does that mean it should be illegal to fly aircraft using FPV equipment under tree canopies (where there can't possibly be other aircraft?)

The FAA rule is draconian. FPV flying is becoming not just a hobby, but a sport. And by passing draconian rules like this the FAA is taking rational conversation off the table and ensuring that thousands of people will just disregard them and break the rules.

And that puts me at greater risk. Thanks a lot.

"We're here to help" indeed.
How does the agency prefer you fly? For free, within line of sight, in the middle of nowhere, and very low to the ground.

They have a large selection of deserts, pastries, and other baked items. It's often busy but you can get through the line very quickly.

The food was incredibly underwhelming; nearly every item tasted, and looked, as though it was frozen or from a can. Everything was very under-seasoned and bland. The eggs were decent, once seasoned, because they were actually cooked fresh. Service was terrible! The waitress kept leaving before we could order for our son, one plate arrived 5 minutes before the others, and we even had to stop our waitress for the check. We have passed this restaurant numerous times and it's always busy. We were shocked with our experience given the number of people that appear to frequent Georgia Diner. We don't plan on returning.

Fay Da is fast, cheap and absolutely delicious. I find myself getting breakfast from Fay Da at least once a week; I may be addicted to the pork roll. This is a great place to stop on the way to work or on the weekend.

The food is good but a little expensive; our average price per person was $18. The portions were great, possibly a bit over sized. The chicken cordon bleu sandwich was excellent.
