Hirscher is just out in front of a crashing drone at the night slalom at Madonna di Campiglio.

Nuts.

Just a friendly reminder if you own or are giving one/getting one for Christmas, remember to register it with the FAA (you can thank all those before who flew them where they shouldn't have for this big brother moment).

Speaking of drones - anyone who travels 95 South notice a flock of them in the Rt1 area often? Usually traveling after dark on Sunday nights and noticed lots of them in a general area (which I haven't paid too much attention to...maybe close to Steveskis house? He seems like a drone operator lol).

I dont know about anyone else, but I think these drones will cause some major problems at some point.....no regulations or controls, I hope I am wrong on this.

dam right they will, no need for the suicide bombers to die when these things can just fly into a stadium. sad but just a matter of time. way to close to planes also

I hate those things.  I have a next door neighbor who bought his kid a drone last spring.  It was like having a very large mosquito buzzing around all summer.  Totally annoying.  We were not the only ones Pissed.  It seems the Kid was flying the drone up close to another neighbors house.  The guys has three daughters. Needless to say, a conversation was had and the drone no longer goes in that direction.   LOL.

There are regulations and controls on commercial drones, and as of this week registration of recreational drones is now mandatory.  Probably just the beginning...

I don't think registering does anything or prevents one from flying a drone into traffic and causing an accident or some of the other horrible things one might guess that someone can do with one of these.

There should be hunting allowed year round for drones!

Heck no it does nothing.  It's just an opportunity for the FAA to say "look, we've done something.". Probably a bigger opportunity for someone with all honest intentions to miss the requirement and then potentially get fined.  How they will enforce fines will be interesting, who will they be tasking for that?  They have enough trouble oversighting MRO and outsourced maintenance for aircraft let alone potentially millions of recreational drones.

Agreed, but is a step in the right direction.  There are restrictions on where drones or any kind of unmanned aircraft can be flown, and while not laws per se there is also a published set of operating protocols that all drone pilots are expected to adhere to, sort of like the skier responsibility code.  While drones/model planes are not new, the tech has evolved and they are obviously becoming more popular and I would think we'll be seeing more regulations.  Also worth noting that if you are flying drones to make money (photos, surveying, transporting goods/materials, etc) then you are required to get FAA approval first.

Sorry there are all kinds of rules about guys.....none of those rules or regulations do anything or can prevent folks from doing what they are doing recently

Rules about guys? What does that mean?

First you said there are "no regulations or controls" and now you seem to be saying that rules or regulations don't matter anyway.  I guess I don't know what your point is...maybe you think they should just be made illegal?  Not sure that genie is going back in the bottle, so what else should be done besides creating some rules and regulations to govern their use?
