Should give each lawmaker one of these new SpyHawks, get them hooked, then maybe
they will LEGALIZE IT.

Or paint it air superiority gray and take it over to the Pentagon. John would you take a two party check for $120,000,000?

Aerovironment and others have taken over that market. If you mean a bribe then that is
big trouble, although it certainly happens. I think that new ready built FPV plane may
accelerate additional curfews. Too many users. Like the high speed phones, bandwidth
limiters are being enforced now, on heavy users. Plus, the inevitable accidents..

Hard for small companies. The mil-spec paperwork and requirements are costly.

How about get a jump on crypto controllers?

Humphreys recommended that drones weighing more than 18 pounds or deemed critical infrastructure by DHS should bake encrypted signal feeds and spoof-resistant technology into their navigation systems. But he added that DHS should commit to funding the development and implementation of encrypted signatures into civil GPS signals.

I worked with MILSTD-1553B in the 70's, arming WMD. Things have come a long way.

Maybe now we can make a hobby encryptor with the Arduino. Gimme an algorithm!
