OMG…I got so angry when I read this story about how Steve Girard of Gorham got threatened by the FAA. Steve has a full time job, but when he started playing with his new 3 lb. drone, and got pretty good at taking some pictures with it, and decided to sell them for a few dollars on his website, big brother, the FAA came in bullying him and threatened him with pulling down his site. You just HAVE to not only read this story, but also listen to audio recording they left on his voicemail. This shit just totally pisses me off!! Please share this story everywhere you can, and let the government know that it’s not nice to mess with the “little guy” …just because you can. It’s just not right.
If you want to go straight to the audio, that link is HERE, (but it’s also in the story above if you follow that link)
And since that article was a little old, I was curious. what exactly “is” the law ‘CURRENTLY’ and where do hobbyists stand? Well I did a little research for you. I found a case where the FAA tried to make another guy “register” his “unmanned aircraft” (really? It’s a toy for God’s sake!) …and the outcome. If you are a drone hobbyist, you are definitely going to want to read the outcome of that case. (I won’t spoil it for you, so please read the whole document, it’s not that long)
