    Just found out from TeamFlyingCircus.com that a judge for the NTSB has annulled a $10.000 fine laid down by the FAA by a man who flew a UAV for commercial use to close to Charlottesville VA for capturing photos and video for hire. But the judge concluded that the FAA was not in line with the FAA rules for model air craft.

    The complete article can be found teamflyingcircus.com Was not able to post a link for this hear. Sorry But we won one battle for now at least
