If you are below 200ft and so many miles away from an airport there should be no issue outside of privacy concerns.

A lot of people associate the word "Drone" with the unmanned military aircraft that carry missiles and bomb places in the middle east. Pretty much every drone used in the U.S. is for research or recreational purposes. Please stop the fear mongering media. Many of the research drones will help better our lives.

Hobbyists have been flying remote control aircraft for many years. It is fascinating to see replica bombers and helos take off and land. Remote control helicopters are being flown by enthusiasts in every state. I'd like to see them stop that. Not.

I'd rather see businesses like that liquor store on Mille Lacs be able to use these than the Customs/Border Patrol's Predator drone being used for a barricaded suspect out in ND like what happened recently.

Boss hog in general aviation where the drone rules will most like follow when they get written there needs to be 500 feet of separation between buildings and people on the ground. When people that are hit by these drones as stated in the article rules will need to be enforced for people's protection.

Commercial use of drones is outside the rules? What rules? It's the lawless wild west again, there are no rules. Metro cops go to Hawaii with seized assets and none are prosecuted. $Bilion dollar stadiums are forced upon taxpayers and it's clearly outside the rules. Our judges dismiss the lawsuits to stop the stadium without actually addressing the issue of "rules." Why should anyone be concerned with rules today? In the end the biggest drone wins!
