That's what you get for messing with a level 34 paladin
@Ealm, Your technology is no defence againt my holy wrath!
@Ealm, I don't think paladins usually carry javelins. That's usually fighters or barbarians
@Langenator, depends on who you're LARPing with. Paladin is typically either a "cleric/priest" in which case they're usually limited to one handed weapons, or a "martial" class, in which case they'd have access to any physical weapon they wanted.
@Melllvar, I always saw paladin as halfway between knight and cleric, so I suppose they could use javelins, but they would just be awkward with a shield
It's not PERIOD!
@Filker, (...what's a period)
@MrWonka, (from that time period)
@Filker, there is a drone that fly a over my house super low and illegally all the time. Next time I swear I'm gonna start shooting pellets at it
I'm going to guess he was using a drone to film a movie or show set, so that actor was breaking it so they couldn't get any more footage. It's a common problem for big production sets
@Duncan5769, I wanna say Renaissance festival
@Devil Ocean, well if that's the case then that guy breaking is drone is totally uncalled for, unless there's rules against drones
@Duncan5769, Well according to 14 CFR Part 107 and Public Law 112-95, it is entirely illegal to fly drones over crowds unless officially waived by the FAA, so...
@Yourself, you musbe fun at parties
@Duncan5769, I try to be, but this is my wheelhouse. I'm a licensed operator working on a major in UA Systems, so it really gets on my nerves watching naive amateurs break common safety procedures. And you asked if there's a rule against drones, so in some fashion, I provided.
@Yourself, yeah that's why I added the unless there rules against it. Cause I know nothing about drones other then the today but I gave about production sets having to deal with them
@Duncan5769, This was at a Russian renaissance fair, the thrower offered to pay for drone repairs but the damage was minimal. Now they have drone dragon killing events with kites and drones and this moment was immortalized in a carving on a boulder nearby.
@Yourself, Laws like this seem weird. How is flying a drone any different than flying a regular RC helicopter. Unless the law applies to both. Then I would argue it's not a drone.
After all a drone or (quardacopter) as they use to be called before people started calling every flying RC device a drone. Is nothing more than a RC plane or helicopter. Only with more propellers.
I legitimately wonder why and how they can classify them so differently.
@Seohn, Laws do indeed apply to both. Any unmanned vehicle between 0.5 pounds and 55 pounds is all under the same restriction. Anything greater is kept under heightened restrictions, of course.
@Yourself, by the way. There's a diffeeence between flying over a crowd and flying nearby from an angle that lets you see a crowd. I wouldn't fly over a crowd. Simply because it's engines might fail then fall and hit someone.
@Yourself, Thank you. I had been wondering about his for some time. Everyone seems to call anything that flys remotely anymore a drone. So it has had me posing the question as to why did we stop calling it what it used to be called. An RC aircraft. But if the laws apply the same. Then what they are called really doesn't matter.
He killed the dragon!
Is this from the next season of The Grand Tour?
WHATS THIS SORCERY?!?!
As someone who owns a drone this really pisses me off (assuming it was a renaissance festival and not a closed set.)
@Harvester, what about if it was true period festival where such objects arent allowed, gurthermore what if filming wasnt allowed or they didnt have permission.
Im just curious to see your view on the matter, as someone who works faires
@Rikdek Millstone, still would be pissed it's a $700+ drone if it's a dji like mine. The guy would be a dick for breaking rules but that doesn't justify destruction of property.
@Harvester, true, idk just how fragile those drones are but im reasonably sure that was a foam weapon and he just knocked it out of the sky.
Faire workers, depending on the faire are required to act in a period appropriate fashion (or be fired) and lots of people take it very seriously and it is their way of life. Though i agree destruction of property isnt right, i think that he shouldnt have been flying there to begin with. Unless he had permission, but im not sure a faire would allow that. That being said that may not be a worker, could just be a random faire patron who saw a chance and drunkenly took it
@Rikdek Millstone, it's a fine line to walk with drones.
@Rikdek Millstone, ive seen some people do incredibly stupid things
@Harvester, very true
@Harvester, look up the story about this online. The owner took it all in good humor and the event was actually memoralized in that renfest
@Harvester, It's not a fine line at all. It's very well distinguished that it is entirely illegal to fly drones over crowds unless specfically waived by the FAA, according to 14 CFR Part 107 and Public Law 112-95. I'm a licensed commercial operator going to university specifically for UA systems, and whereas you get pissed off seeing the technology physically abused, I get pissed off with how largely disregarded these common safety measures are. I do apologize for the rant and if this comes across as aggressive, but the operator clearly isn't maintaining minimum safety standards.
@Harvester, Although I'm going to add that I totally agree with you that just knocking it out of the sky was a djck move, (and also arguably illegal). So I'm glad to hear that everyone just took it in good humor.
