A Drone for the Holidays? The FAA Wants a Word...
The FAA has put out a holiday video Monday guiding users on the best ways to use -- and not abuse -- their new flying toys.
The FAA video is full of helpful hints, like don't fly your drone over 400 feet, near airports or stadiums, and don't try and make a buck off your drone, unless specifically authorized by the agency.
If only the video had come out earlier. It might have saved the tip of this poor woman's nose in New York City!
Of course, its been a rocky few days in the world of drones anyway. On Friday, the "Magpie," a commercial drone, crashed at a test site in Boulder City, Nev. The state has a license from the Federal Aviation allowing it to conduct its own drone certifications.
