US watchdog lobs balls of red tape at spy-in-the-sky drones


Not necessarily. The hobbyist could be more fearful of his/her purchase, $500 is a lot to some people. And on the flip-side, the pro could have insurance, and a company that can deduct the loss of a expensive drone on their taxes. You never can tell. I flew an semi-expensive drone a few month past and with more time I could fly it as well or better than any pro. They are just not that tricky to learn, and there's only two sticks and some knobs. It's not a moon rocket. If you know how to operate an R/C vehicle, and how it steers going away and coming at you, you can pilot a drone as well as, well, a drone pilot. It's the same damn thing. It is known.
