Heard on the news this morning that close encounters with aircraft and drones is now 3 times higher than it was last year. One Senator was stating he is pushing for much harsher laws regarding the use of drones. Also story covered several incidents where firefighters were unable to use their aircraft to fight fires because of the drones in the area.. So, think about it folks. As more and more people get into this hobby we will see more stories like this. Don't do stuff that is questionable. It's cool to get video of forest fires but when it brings negative attention to the hobby, it's not so cool anymore. Had a guy come up to me the other day and tell me that there was a small airport nearby which I didn't know about. I'm thankful for that. Take the opportunity to educate folks when the opportunity arises.
