FAA, Superbowl, and drones...

http://news.yahoo.com/faa-says-shoot...010255121.html

I kinda hope somebody is stupid enough to try to watch for free so we can see how they will be "shot down"

You can't say Superbowl! It's trademarked and you have to pay to use it.

Oops, I said it!

It's hard to tell from the poorly worded Yahoo article, but it seems like the exclusion zone is a 36 mile radius around the stadium. Where in the US, in a populated area, would you not find "drones" flying in more than 4000 square miles? Seems like unenforcible bluster to me. Bring on the stealth drones!

In addition to being a model aircraft enthusiast I am also a violinist. Thus the terms "drone" and "drone ban" create an alternative connotation. If I am within 35 miles of the stadium will I be pulverized if I play a piece of music requiring a steady harmonic note ?? LOL

" And the answer is 'Often compared to a piece of music requiring a steady harmonic note'"

"What is Drone?"

I'd like to see how they do this safely!

Frankly, I'd love the job, but the potential for collateral damage i.e. to people or property below would worry me a little.

Hey - say "spoiler alert" - I'm in a different time zone and they haven't played it here yet.

Yeah, my prediction was way off! Glad I didn't put money on it! What a defense!
