I may be a bit paranoid, but I am concerned by the rash of pleas for help with projects that want to control RC airplanes or drones at an extend distance. Way beyond visual range. And some are obviously from people in the Middle East.

Am I alone in this concern?

I don't know why one area of the world might matter more than another.

The drones that we should worry about are being flown by military institutions that don't need our advice.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

We have several drone test ranges in Eastern Oregon state. One not very many miles from where I am. I know the safety protocols are quite rigid and are rigorously enforced. The Arduino drone testing has none of this and who know where there is a remote area the OP is testing.

I dont know.  But I bet if we did a regional study of home-made explosive devices one region would stand out as a significant outlier.

Please do not PM with technical questions or comments.  Keep Arduino stuff out on the boards where it belongs.

I wonder why? Perhaps someone is upsetting them?

Malta?  They've got quite the cottage fireworks thing going, I hear...
Then there's the Thais, who've been known to go a bit wild with their rocket-like things.

And there are the countries that spend many billions of dollars per year manufacturing professional explosive devices, and selling them to pretty much anyone...  :-(

Nevertheless, I won't be responding to any requests for help making "countdown timers for an airsoft fake device"...

Four white guys with a Swastika tattooed on each of their forearms ask a noble black man what type of rope and type of knot is necessary to hang 113 kilos of weight from an elevated branch; the noble black man refuses to answer.  Who is the racist?

Brother probably didn't understand the question, to be fair.

...what type of rope and type of knot is necessary to hang 113 kilos of weight from an elevated branch...
4mm nylon or propylene rope can easily handle a static load of 113kg, you would be beigging to take a chance with sisal.
