    This is the URL for an article in Slate Magazine on March 5, 2014 about the limits and extent of the FAA's jurisdiction over UAV's. Copy and paste it into your browser and then read it to know your rights at present, especially if the FAA is after you to stop flying.

    Those guys were flying booze around to people, you need a license to do that. Hahaha, but really - the FAA can't "stop" you but let me tell you, it scares me that any Joe can go out and buy a flying, explosive machine capable of causing head trauma! I think you should be required to take some kind of RC pilot test to prove you have at least read the manuals... :mrgreen:
