One Life To Live

OK my homies and homettes, I finally registered my drone with The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and I got my UAS registration number. All that is left for me to do is to print it out, since the law says, that I have to carry it with me when I’m flying it and mark my drone with the number, once I do that, I’m ready to fly. The truth is, that it really sucks that I can’t fly my drone in the public park across the street from my home. Hey! It is what it is.

As for my weekend? To be honest, I didn’t do much. As usual, I did some shopping with my wife and then I was chilling like a villain at home the rest of the weekend. Some people might think that I have a boring life, but the truth is, that I don’t like drama and none of the bullshit that comes with it. I just like to live a relaxed life. That’s the reason why I don’t get involved in OPP (Other People’s Problems). Some people might see me as being stuck up or that I think that I’m the big shit, but the reality of it all is, that I’m a nice simple person who gets along with everybody. It’s just that I don’t get involved in other people’s lives. The way that I look at it is, that I have my life to live, so why should I try to live other people’s life? In other words, I mind my own business and I stay out of other people’s business. It is as simple as that.

With that said, I’m Audi 5000 y’all!

Flight Of My Drone

OK my homies and homettes, for father’s day, my lovely daughter gave me a drone as a gift. I previously owned a couple of remote control helicopters, but the thing about owning a drone in New York City is, that it is illegal to fly them anywhere, and I mean anywhere in Manhattan, where I live.

But first, before everything is said and done, I have pay five dollars to register my drone as The Exception for Recreational Flyers at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) website FAADroneZone for three years. Then I have to mark my aircraft with the assigned unique registration number given to me by the administration and carry proof of registration with me. Finally, I can only fly it in five specific parks in the city… remember, none in Manhattan. So that means that I have to drive about 35 minutes out to the closest park to me, which is Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, out in Queens.

But wait, there’s more! As you might know by now, The American government, never makes it easy for us civilians to enjoy anything, so they have other laws that I have to follow when flying my drone, which you can read by clicking here plus I have to download their B4Ufly App. In other words, I can become a pilot and fly a 747, before I’m able to fly my drone in New York City.

With that said, I’m Audi 5000 y’all!
