Thanks for the info.  My fixed income is not going to allow it but drones look like they would be a lot of fun.  I have the perfect back yard for that sort of thing.  Getting hold of anyone at THIS tower could be kind of difficult but staying below 400' would solve that problem anyway. 




To the Gentleman who lives within 5 miles of an airport, you may operate any RC Aircraft in this region simply by notifyling the control tower. A simple phone call. and ONLY if you plan to fly above 400'. Operations below that altitude are for all intents and purposes unrestricted.

I doubt anyone would be any more successful trying to 'jam' an RC 'drone'  than they would cell phones.   However,  no one here seems to be cognizant of the fact that most RV quad copters (drones),  at least the ones that I have been exposed to,  have the capability to automatically fly back to their point of takeoff....if their control signal is lost.  They do NOT simply hover in place until battery goes dead.

so after reading about the drunk drone op (see link below), i wonder how bad an incident will have to be before they are banned, or at least have to be registered with local police?

Soon to be the subject of new federal regulations, drones are also a source of concern for law enforcement throughout the nation, including at the White House.

If you have stock in a drone company I suggest you sell now.
