yup. Drones will be like legal firearm ownership in California.

Oh you gotta love it when the press starts labeling operators with fly-aways, "...Back in January, a drone crashed on the White House lawn after the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency employee who had been flying the unmanned aircraft around downtown D.C. lost control of it. The 3 a.m. crash startled Secret Service agents but was ultimately determined an accident, its clumsy pilot absolved of criminal charges..."

Will you people stop calling it a Drone it's a Quadcopter, this is what gets the people and the news media going. Second look at that thing, it's a guy flying a toy in the park that did not no any better I know it's stupid but not everyone knows you can't fly a toy in DC. maybe should have signs in park stating no RC toys, kites, and rotocopters allowed who know where he is from. I love the news when I was watching I thought I was going to see a Drone with missiles on it.

Actually Marcus it is sUAS or a MultiRotor craft but I agree we should educate the public that it should not be called a drone.
Alas...to late me thinks. I don't like it either but I have decided to resign to the fact that society in general call our ahem...aircraft...drones. I have got over it. Now lets go fly.

Man try living in the DC Metro area, Baltimore to be precise, and getting multiple text messages/tweets/people stopping you and making jokes, whenever these incidents happen.
