A cop friend of mine sent me this Police to drone owners: Please don't fly them unless licensed The article is short on details, but it seems to me, with an admittedly novice understanding of the law, or what went on, that the police were in the wrong here. Now of course, you don't argue with the police on the scene, I'm not advocating we do that, or anything like it. Just curious, after the fact. Most of us aren't Licensed, and the FAA "Guidelines" in regards to max height, or flying over people are just that, guidelines. Yes, flying over crowded places is stupid and dangerous, but is it illegal in and of itself? Maybe the police confiscated it under some other generic rule about endangering public health. Anyone in Grand Rapids know more?
