"Drones" in the news - Australia

Last night there was a story on drones in Australia on a current affairs program called 7:30 Report which is on ABC (our government funded network).

Here is the link to the story if you are interested:

Hopefully they allow viewing by international IP's.

What new regulations are coming next month and what do these mean to the average hobbyists?

Yeah, I was wondering that too. I'll see what I can find. But it sounds like it will make it easier if you want to make a $ from it.

I'm for all licensing of some type for commercial use as these things can be dangerous but the current regulations are complete overkill.

Hopefully they don't change anything for the hobbyist.
