    Attention if you fly in the Philadelphia, PA, USA area. The FAA has put in place a 34.5 mile radius no fly zone from the Philly International Airport due to the Democratic National Convention.

    Starts Monday at 10am, so at least it doesn't screw up my weekend plans.

    Guess dates would have helped right!

    I wonder how quickly they'd shoot the drone down if you flew it within a mile

    34.5 miles is ridiculous... this is why the FAA should consider a micro class set of sub-rules. You could not load enough batteries on a Phantom to get 17.5 miles with anything dangerous on board...

    Remember we're playing in the Big Boy sandbox now and we aren't alone. That size TFR is for really BIG and/or really dangerous aircraft. I can assure you 100% they aren't going to make a special set of TFR's for UAS. We play by the big boy rules if we want to play in the big boy sandbox.

    The NFZ needs to be big enough to give them time to shoot down a non-compliant aircraft if necessary.

    Probably limited to just balloon flights in the area, fueled by all of the politicians' hot air. ;)
