FAA Releases New Commercial Drone Rules That Require “Remote Pilot Certificate”

Last Tuesday, the the 21st of June 2016, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), unveiled its new rules regarding commercial operation of small consumer drones. 624 pages long, the rules require operators to have a “remote pilot certificate”, must be a least 16 years old (or accompanied by an adult with a remote pilot certificate if below 16), ban of night flights, and should remain below 400 feet or within 400 feet of any structure.

Rules for hobbyist or personal drones will still remain the same.

“Airsoft Versus Reality 6” Is Epic But Does Away With The Comedy

With all this excitement and anxiety surrounding UK’s EU Referendum, we almost forgot that we didn’t have a feature story ready for today.  Good thing that I have been watching the latest installment in the “Airsoft Versus Reality” series as produced by BirnyX/Johny Deadline Picture Production.

NASA Engineer Builds The World’s Biggest Nerf Gun & It's Awesome

A former NASA engineer who perhaps may have too much time in his hands, has just built the largest Nerf Gun in the world. And if you want to get in a Nerf gunfight with him, better think twice, since when we say large, it can fire a bigger Nerf dart at you that would totally ruin your day, or your window. The Nerf dart that it uses is fashioned out of toilet plungers.

Bundeswehr Survey: German Troops Do Not Trust Their Weapons

The saga of the Heckler & Koch G36 Rifle continues. Since last year, the mainstay rifle in the Bundeswehr has been under attack for not being accurate when used in hot weather. In test reports, the G36 the accuracy becomes suspect after sustained automatic fire heating up the barrel. The report has resulted into the Bundeswehr looking into other alternative to replace last year.

The New Fallout Pip-Boy Is A Bluetooth Connected Smartwatch

Remember the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy made for the real world last year? The demand was so high that Bethesda can’t produce enough to satisfy customers. While it looks cool, it was really more a glorified smartphone case where the screen is your smartphone that you drop into the wrist-mounted casing which of course is a bit awkward to use when you need to use your smartphone for other purposes such as actually making calls with it.

Airsoft Guns, Gear & Awesome People At The Airsoft Showcase 2016

I woke a bit early than usual last Saturday. There is always one reason why I need to wake up early on Saturday as compared to the rest of the world --- there is an airsoft event taking place. I know that most of your attention is about the UK referendum to stay or leave the EU (with the campaign of both sides suspended with the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox by someone who is said to have far right connections), or the EUFA Euro 2016 which is probably the third most watched spectator sport in the world after the FIFA World Cup and the Olympics.

U.S. Senate Passes Bill That Would Require Women To Register For Draft

Last June 14, 2016, the U.S. Senate approved a bill that would require women to register for draft when they turn 18 which male citizens already do since the Civil War. This is not yet law as it will have to be signed by President Obama, but this can be the last restriction to be lifted for women to have full participation in the U.S.

Lion Claws Releases Official Statement On Internet Meme

An internet meme has been circulating in social media that mocks Lion Claws, which as of recent months, has been under severe criticism by competitors and other airsofters. The military simulations outfit organizes events all over the U.S. to cater to airsoft players in their own regions. It has been accused of underhanded tactics to block competitors from using facilities for their own events, such as the case of the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center in Indiana.

Titanfall 2 Single Player Campaign & Multiplayer Trailers Have Dropped

The Titanfall video game, a breakout first person shooter video game in 2014, will soon have its second version released. Titanfall was launched as a multiplayer game in that year due to a low budget, given that it was developed by a small studio, Respawn Entertainment, which is comprised of former developers of the Call of Duty video game franchise.

The Suunto Spartan Ultra Multisports Watch Will Track Everything You Do

Among the watches I’ve seen on airsoft players, Suunto is one with more wearers on the field and is sought after by those who can afford a feature-packed watch if they find their Casio G-Shocks as meh or their Luminox watches as too basic. Suunto has many users in both the sports, outdoors, and tactical communities for the features of its watches that they find indispensable.
