I will be the first to admit, we do a lot of dumb stuff here at Big Squid RC. Sure we launch things off roofs, sure we crash planes into cars, sure we drop quads out of the sky to hit them with a shovel, but we always do it as safely as possible. This morning, on my way into [...]

One of our friends, Tim Gluth over at RCNewb.com, posted up a question last week that got my mind to thinking. His question was quite simple, “What is the best rc story from 2014?”, but I had a hard time actually coming up with an answer.

Raging Rotors: Fly It Hard, but Safe!

Hello all, and Merry Christmas! This week I have yet a simple message: SAFETY! The FAA, in coalition with other groups including the AMA, set up KnowBeforeYouFly, a website that outlines the guidelines of dos and don’ts when flying unmanned aircraft.
