They are all the rage. Cheap and easy to fly. But some people screwing it up giving them bad name by crashing onto White House lawn and such. FAA trying to create legislation and get $$$ from commercial use.
So what say the rally sanctioning bodies regarding use? SCCA has outlawed them from their events. Knee-jerk.
For stagerally, I see them as a safer method to capture the action than standing near stage w/ any camera. Could organizers even designate 'drone-only' spectator areas with ample flying space for non-media (different characteristics for good location from a regular spectator area- less trees, no powerlines, good landing area) in the future?
Do we grasp the new technology to our advantage or its it going to be banned for a reason I cannot think of?
Are there any restrictions already? What has been droner's experiences thus far? Thoughts?
