|[AMRadio] FAA even worse!|

I just traded the remaining telescope and high end ($) Eyepieces for
what "can" easily qualify as a drone.
Stumbled upon what the FAA has defined as MY No Fly Zone.
I have followed the trail and located an *Internal* Memorandum from 2011.
I can still operate in this "No Fly Zone", under the exemption they have
in this *Internal* Memorandum.
I can fly this as a recreational model, it is under 55lbs, and I fly
strictly line of site and do NOT program the flights.
Oh how wonderful to have to go DIG to locate an Internal Memorandum!
This happens to be a DJI Phantom 2 Vision+. They go for over $1300! I
would not have gone out and bought one.
The gentleman offered to do some trading. The first thing he offered
was a significantly larger Telescope than the one I gave to our
granddaughter. I had to say no, due to the darn arthritis.
Then we arranged a phone call. The next item offered was an assault
rifle. Now I know the XYL won't go for that!
So I explained it to him.
Then he offers the Phantom in a straight across the board trade.
This I could do and stay out of dog house.
We arranged a time and day, I took over what he was wanting as bad as I
was wanting a Phantom.
I took it all out of the carrying case. I had him slip just one of
those Eyepieces in and go outside and see for himself.
Bit hook line and sinker! I was already that way before I got there.
Now we are both very happy.
Now I just ensure I stay in the Exemption rules!
