Droning On

Did you happen to catch the story about drones in the news?  As the prices have come down, drones have become much more popular.  The trouble is that they have also become a danger to airplanes and helicopters.  You’re not supposed to fly them over 400 feet or within a five mile radius of any airport.  There have been a number of close calls between airplanes and drones over the past year so, guess what?  You now have to register your drone with the FAA.

It’s funny what can be accomplished in the name of public safety when there is not a massive lobby fighting against it.  I’m looking at you again, NRA.  Again, toy helicopters need to be registered(rightly so, I think), but not guns.  #priorities
