What is the status of rc on the dc mall ?

The last I heard radio control sail boating on the reflecting pools in the DC Mall was prohibited by the Capitol Police. What is the current situation? 1/24/2014

sailing models in DC
9/16/2012. The reflecting pool between the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial has been renovated and now appears ready for sailing model sailboats. The depth of water at the edges is about 10 inches.
The depth at the edges of the Constitution Garden pool is about 16 inches..
Who has been sailing in these pools and what have you learned from such activities? Thanks.

model dhows sailing on the dc reflecting pools
4/15/2013. Since Congress and the Capitol Police have banned radio controlled model sailboats from the reflecting pools on The National Mall we now can consider all sorts of free sailing models.
