A bill needs to be sponsored that requires paper airplanes to also be registered. A paper airplane could crash into a drone, causing it to crash into an airplane. That airplane could be filled with "Syrian refugees". And we wouldn't want to see anything bad happen to the pre-terrorists.

The government hates competition.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

I dunno has anybody got their drone close enough to a turbofan on a plane coming in for landing or takeoff at JFK or LaGuardia?

Generally planes are not really supposed to be below 1000 feet when they're not in the process of landing or taking off and I haven't seen too many drones fly above 2000. That's kinda too high for the radio signal to be picked up well from the RC.

You could send up a drone to crash into some helicopter blades. My house starts shaking when the police helicopters sit and park 500 feet above my roof while they're trying to light up the avenue for whoever it is they happen to be chasing.

In answer to your question about JFK and LGA, the answer is YES. Google it. They have videos and audios of the discussion between ATC and the transports.

The issue above 2000 ft AGL is as much being able to see the thing as it is radio range.

Given the Class Bravo airspace, to say nothing of the crowding, in and around New York City, flying a drone anywhere is a very dicey proposition. If you're within a few miles of JFK or LGA on land, you're likely in an area where the Class B goes down to the surface. If your drone comes eye to eye with an aircraft on approach, you've almost certainly broken a few regulations by just having in that airspace at all without ATC permission, even if it's hovering at waist-level.

This is the case of a few idiots ruining it for everybody.

If you like your drones, you can keep your drones.

Quote:Just in time for the holidays, when thousands of drones will be received as gifts, the Federal Aviation Administration announced Monday that recreational pilots and hobbyists must register all drones weighing between 0.55 pounds and 55 pounds, including on-board cameras, by Feb. 19, 2016.

Anyone flying a drone, or unmanned aircraft, for recreational purposes after that date will face a civil penalty up to $27,500 and potential criminal charges, including a fine up to $250,000 and three years in prison, the agency said.

The registration fee is $5, but the FAA said it will waive the fee for the first 30 days, between Dec. 21 and Jan. 20, to encourage participation.

Drone fliers will be asked to provide their name, home, address, and email address. The online application will generate a certificate of aircraft registration/proof of ownership that will include a unique identification number, which must be marked on the drone.

Registration begins Dec. 21, and covers civilian pilots and hobbyists, but not folks who operate drones for commercial purposes. The FAA said it will begin online registration of drones operated for commercial purposes sometime next spring, but did not give a specific date.

Unmanned aircraft owners can register by mail, or the web at http://www.faa.gov/uas/registration, and must be at least 13 years old, the FAA said.
