    Thanks for the story, EG. It's just a matter of time before one of them drones brings down an aircraft full of people. The "regulators" better get a handle on this before it happens!

    It seems the courts said the FAA has no authority over drones....after they spent millions on drone registration at 5 dollars a pop!....FAA also has to return the 5 dollars to anyone that asks for it!. The whole thing was a waste. BTW what are they going to do with all those Drone Inspectors

    I hear that will be made managers of some obscure work group pulling down 14 pay until they get enough senior management retirements to bump them to "K" or "L" band pay. They could also do the "revolving door" bit until a new UAS program comes about after the first "loss of life" collision ramps up a "new" UAS Branch.

    That detailed damage is still really hard to see.
