Craig I think you will find that you are registered not the aircraft. This is the conclusion I read in other places.

i had an interesting thought this morning and I was wondering if anyone had thought about this too. I have registered for the UAS registration. Not that I am especially pleased with it, I I have done work for the FAA in the past and have friends there today.

Since the FAA is requiring registration and have rules to follow, it would seem to me that should some stranger take offence at my flying and say shoot it out of the air, the FAA would be required to step in considering it is a registered aircraft and prosecute the person for shooting down a registered aircraft in Federal Court.

Since I have not found any reference to something like that, but know if I fly in an unapproved manner I would be proseccuted in a Federal Court myself. I have sent this question to the FAA, but have not yet had a response. I am pretty sure they will respond at some point, but considering that the FAA felt obligated to control this hobby, they also have responsibility to protect unsafe actions by a person that could lead to the destruction of a registered UAS. After all, having it fall from the sky and possibly injuring someone is no different than if an aircraft was shot at. The same may hold true if the signal controlling the UAS is interrupted, causing it to crash.

Overall, this would be a big burden on the FAA since these devices are so popular. Anyone want to speculate as to the answer of that question?

Yes.  The FC is between the RX and the Quattro.

Does the FC Failsafe when set up override the motor  cut-off of a HobbyWing Quattro for lost tx signal? According to HW Quattro  manual, it will shut off the motors after 3 seconds IIRC after sensing no throttle.

Yea I've never seen that either. perhaps there was somebody being very rude or otherwise posting inappropriate / unrelated comments.

I have sent the blog post OP a pm asking him to either remove the OP post review requirement or lock the discussion thread to further posts if that is his intent.
