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."

An unmanned drone recently stumbled upon this abandoned Renaissance Faire in Fredericksburg, Virginia (with the use of a quadcopter and TBS Discovery with Naza GPS). The drone provides an amazing overview of this decaying fairground, hidden deep in the Virginia woods.
Looks like I'm going viral!

Drone Discovers Abandoned Renaissance Faire Deep in Virginia Woods…

http://roadtrippers.kinja.com/drone-...vir-1450740838

An unmanned drone recently stumbled upon this abandoned Renaissance Faire in Fredericksburg, Virginia (with the use of a quadcopter and TBS Discovery with Naza GPS). The drone provides an amazing overview of this decaying fairground, hidden deep in the Virginia woods.

George Washington's mother once owned the land here, because pretty much everything in Virginia was owned by the Washingtons at some point. The area itself is called "Sherwood Forest", because duh! The Ren-Faire was in operation from 1996 until it tanked from low ticket sales in 1999. The property has been decaying ever since.

From the looks of the drone video, it's a pretty epic abandoned fairground, with loads of huge buildings still standing in pretty good condition, though a lot more weedy than before. There's even an abandoned ship sitting in a moat. There are towers, a jousting arena, a bar with built-in kegs, and of course the obligatory graffiti and paintball vandalism.

Should you venture out to the fairgrounds, douse yourself in bug spray as the area is a notorious breeding ground for ticks. Oh yeah, and wear orange if you visit during hunting season. In the meantime, let's hope this drone doesn't bomb the Bleep out of this abandoned Ren-Faire. Or maybe that'd be a good thing...lots of ill-fitted corsets roamed those woods. Here are more creepy abandoned amusement parks for you to explore at your own risk...
