Got this from the FAA via email today.


"Drones and Weapons, A Dangerous Mix

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is warning the general public that it is illegal to operate a drone with a dangerous weapon attached.

Perhaps you’ve seen online photos and videos of drones with attached guns, bombs, fireworks, flamethrowers, and other dangerous items. Do not consider attaching any items such as these to a drone because operating a drone with such an item may result in significant harm to a person and to your bank account.

Operating a drone that has a dangerous weapon attached to it is a violation of Section 363 of the 2018 FAA Reauthorization Act enacted Oct. 5, 2018. Operators are subject to civil penalties up to $25,000 for each violation, unless the operator has received specific authorization from the Administrator of the FAA to conduct the operation. “Dangerous Weapon” means any item that is used for, or is readily capable of, causing death or serious bodily injury.

Operators should keep in mind that federal regulations and statutes that generally govern drone operations still apply. Some state and federal criminal laws regarding weapons and hazardous materials may also apply to drone operators or manufacturers involved in certain operations.
Do not Weaponize Drones "


Makes ya wonder. What brought this on?

It's not a drone with a weapon. It's a flying gun, protected by the Second Amendment.

This type of building threatens our hobby.
They will put more restrictions or even worst.

The FCC will step in just band us from using radios now try flying RC.

Odds are the the FCC would band transmitter (camera) on the model and limit the range of transmitter like 500 feet. But do have power to say no to all radios on models.

Some will say they did not do band over sea's just give them time.
Or I can own gun and NRA and Russia will protect my right s.

Dave

FYI: NRA stands for National Rifle Association or some may say National Russia Association.
