Hi Red
I think this about full scale home built aircraft, not RC. But it's still an ordinance that shows the the total disregard for private property rights.
What a bunch of *&%[email protected] I lived in Jacksonville until 4 years ago, I miss a lot of things down there but not stuff like this.

Best Regards,
Nuts

You are probably right nuts but all it will take is 1 irate neighbor and 1 overzealous lawyer (that may be a double negative ) to file a lawsuit and set a precedent and get model planes banned from an entire town!

Bill, Your right on track. That's probably where it started, an ignorant neighbor with an ax to grind with a connection in city hall.
