Like they aren't already. FAA is clueless.
Here's a related article:
It does some concerns about the growing popularity--both for hobbiest and commercial interest--in flying drones.
(I can't make any apologies for using the term drone. It is simply the nature of how our language evolves.)
Not "drone" Mr. FAA...
evolve your language
Merriam Webster defines drone as:
1 : the male of a bee (as the honeybee) that has no sting and gathers no honey
2 : one that lives on the labors of others : PARASITE
3 : an unmanned aircraft or ship guided by remote control
In the preceding list, definition #3 fits the bill for a wide range of UAV's, including RC quadcopters.
Furthermore, American Heritage Dictionary define drone as--in particular, see #4:
1. A male bee, especially a honeybee, that is characteristically stingless, performs no work, and produces no honey. Its only function is to mate with the queen bee.
2. An idle person who lives off others; a loafer.
3. A person who does tedious or menial work; a drudge: "undervalued drones who labored in obscurity" (Caroline Bates).
4. A pilotless aircraft operated by remote control.
I'm so glad the government will "let" us do those things it deems fit.

We The People seriously need to neuter this rouge government. (Not just Mr.Obama)

In other news, Pharaoh Cheops of Egypt announced he intends to build a great pyramid.
