For the moment, commercial drones are, unequivocally, legal in American skies after a federal judge has ruled that the Federal Aviation Administration has not made any legally binding rules against it.

The judge dismissed the FAA’s case against Raphael Pirker, the first (and only) person the agency has tried to fine for flying a drone commercially. The agency has repeatedly claimed that flying a drone for commercial purposes is illegal and has said that there’s “no gray area” in the law. The latter now appears to be true, but it hasn’t gone the way the FAA would have hoped. Patrick Geraghty, a judge with the National Transportation Safety Board, ruled that there are no laws against flying a drone commercially.

There is a petition to ask the FAA to allow all UAS flights including non-hobby for airframes under 10 lbs, under 400' and not within 2 miles of an airport. It needs a lot more signatures. Please pass the word.
If everyone on RCG signs this petition we are half way there....

FPV Flight 109 TBS Discovery Naza (3 min 28 sec)


Few people have been able to visit the former home of the Virginia Renaissance Faire in Fredericksburg, Va., and with good reason. Since it was closed in 1999, the site has been leased out to local hunting groups, which makes it dangerous for anybody without a bright orange vest.

Dangerous for everybody but Joseph David Mitchell of Lake Ridge, Va., that is, who was able to capture some amazing bird's eye footage of the site from a distance with his custom-built drone.

Mitchell flies a quadcopter — think of a helicopter with four smaller rotors instead of one big one. He uses a first-person view (FPV) rig, which allows him to pilot the quadcopter remotely using an on-board camera that feeds footage wirelessly to video goggles. It's the next best thing to flying over yourself.

"Seeing this abandoned site from the air, I realized this area was very dangerous and even creepier," Mitchell says. "I had heard others talk about visiting this place on foot, however I was not interested going on foot — way too creepy."

Dangerous or not, the crumbling facades of the Virginia Renaissance Faire continue to attract photographers looking for a good shot. There's even a Flickr photo group dedicated to the ruins.

It's not hard to see why. The crumbling grounds feature several buildings that resemble castles, a jousting field and even a faux-pirate ship.

With a range of three miles, Mitchell's quadcopter is able to get just as close as adventurers on foot — and without trespassing or getting covered in ticks. But Mitchell says it's not for everybody.

"I make it look very easy after years of time to perfect my FPV craft," Mitchell says. "I would not recommend anyone try anything this advanced right away."
