    The air laws world wide already do not allow anything to fly above a certain height in any ATZ, even kites are restricted to 150 feet if my memory is correct.

    The problem comes now that the great unwashed can buy something that is more manoeverable and can fly higher than a kite, and of course they know nothing of the air laws etc so in their eyes they are free to do as they like. In the US you are now obliged to register yourself before you can fly a drone but they are considering that air law and other pilot exams being passed before you can fly a drone, but they are monitoring the situ like all countries and I dare say there will be more legislation forthcoming to control these things before long.

    all you have to do is watch the kids flying on our multiplayer server and their lack of dicipline and transfer that mentality to a drone that daddy has bought sonny Jim for xmas.

    The latest restrictions in the USA under the control of the FAA are not to fly any drone within 5 nm of airports, airfields or heli pads. However if your flying machine is under 0.55 Lbs in weight you do not require to register the device.
