Some people are more of a hazard to themselves than others.

Couldn't have happened at a worse time for me. I'm in talks with FAA.

I wondered about that aspect of it. Now the FAA has a bad example to point to of drone usage, involving the most famous real estate in the US.

So it goes with most things, a handful of knuckleheads have to ruin it for the rest of us. That's why we can't have any fun toys.

This poses a problem as I am practicing with my drone now to look at roofs.....and I will be working in (Northern) Virginia, and eventually Maryland and DC.....

Any tips? I am working out the process as I go!

For 60 bucks, can't hurt to check it out.
It just may the the substitute for my camera pole on 2 story roofs.

I just read an article on drone usage and were they are banned, some of the areas are within a mile of all airports, within a mile of any venue that seats 30,000 or more people, all of Washington DC, I Believe it said all of Los Angeles and possibly coming up soon will be all of New York.

Luckily, I intend to cover ALL of Virginia/DC/MD so my drone will still be useful! I love the countryside better anyway!

That's really cheap. Can you post a follow up review after you get it? For $60 I might just order one & see for myself though.

Want to stop the public from spying on you? Crash one of these things into the White House and turn it into a homeland security investigation. Puts a stop to that real quick!

It's been deemed that flying this aircraft was "recreational" by a federal agency?! How damn stupid do you think I am?

Strap on some C4 and see how well those blast proof windows on the White House stand up!

Do you catch the paranoia drift?

Only Obama can play with drones!
