This has serious implications for mail and pizza delivery. Think what the Post Office could save if they got rid of mail carriers and used drones. Pizza Hut could save millions. Where can on buy one? Ignore the FAA. It's just another joy killing government regulator.

Put one or two drones in Congress to record every session - I'll bet that 95% of our representation would be changed in the next election!!

Let's keep using technology to put people out of work and then we can criticize them because they are on public assistance. Has satellite technology and the internet been beneficial to newspaper sales? How the *ell did we live without facebook and twitter? I can remember the old days when you had to go to Video World to rent a movie. Does anyone born after 1985 know what a pay phone is? Why not slow down and appreciate the world minus all the latest gadgets, gizmos, and drones? Take a walk in the Adirondacks, it will do the mind and body more good than you can imagine.

WOW Hill, a post that lots of people should heed and there is lots of truth in it. But the FAA is definitely getting carried away with this. The editorial examples of a roof inspection company and the baseball teams woes are good illustrations of a government gone awry. There are lots of applications where short range (as in radio signal) "drones" or R/C helicopters with cameras would, could, and should be utilized even if it is only for entertainment value.

And besides, people have been running remote controlled model airplanes for years and never been bothered by the FAA or even the FFA.
