A handful of men have had a huge influence on my life. My father, John Stamos, Roy Burns, Murray Spivack, Joey Grijalva, Jeff Porcarro, and this Man Vic Peloquin.
I haven’t seen Vic in 40 years (he is the guy who created Skatopia). After sitting and chatting with Vic and his wonderful family I can now see why I recollected Skatopia as such a paradise. The man who created it is a visionary, and has a passion for experimentation and creation.
He told me about how the land for Skatopia was acquired. How the half pipe was made. Who designed the Skatopia logo. Why he closed Skatopia. We also talked about drones, and even flew a drone.
Imagine a Skatopia reunion with these three at the helm! Stay tuned!!!
I just read this article “Personal drones no longer need to be registered with FAA, US federal court rules” And let me first say that I am a novice drone enthusiast. My thoughts after reading this article are, alright now you do not have to register drones if you are a enthusiast. Well I already registered so what happened to my money and my rights? Second DJI is releasing a version of their flight software that will (at the very least) control altitude and flight radius if you don’t register with them? So the FAA (reluctantly) lets go of some control and DJI takes it back plus some.
Confusion seems to be the rule of all things drone related. and I find confusion in this ruling and further confusion relating to some upcoming as of this writing DJI go apps.
