    Great news and thanks the posting! The pundits seem to be mixed about what Part 107 will do for the commercial environment. Some say demand will skyrocket (the FAA, in conjunction with a private consulting firm, predict 100,000 commercial drones by the end of the year and 2.5 million by 2018) while others think it will do little - especially by not taking care of flights above people and Beyond Visual Line of Sight Operations.

    Either way, I think it's a big step in the right direction and hope it is a sign of positive things to come in the future.

    Daylight only operation? If this is true then I will sell my quad. Night time flying for me is the best. I can actually see it better at night due to my blue LED strip.

    I don't see their definition of sUAS. I think this weight class doesn't include Inspire. I assume you'll need a 333 for Inspire sized craft for commercial operations. Am I wrong?

    I think the line of sight statement makes bad law. It varies from person to person. Why not establish a hard limit. That is easier to govern.

    I need to record firework displays. We don't do them in the daytime very often. Maybe if I tie on some fishing line and call the drone a powered kite:(
