Drones need their own version of Asimov's laws of robotics – MEPs

Government is always behind technology. What they don't understand they regulate. Not going to change in the foreseeable future.

I've flown nitro copters for years, the past 6 years with a camera mounted. Stabilized gimbals were few and far between as well as a system to stabilize flight. Along came DJI with the Phantom series quads and Light Bridge first person viewing the the world exploded.

Too many different government agencies have their hands into attempting to regulate UAV's and as such, the current regulations don't work, sort of like Mozilla with FireFox

For every system (geo fencing) put in place to restrict UAV flight, there's a cheap work abound.

Education and licensing is the only thing that's going to work. Get caught with no license, lose your quad until you get the license. Infractions after that, huge fines for repeat offenders..
