    Maybe we can clear up the legality of flying drones if someone will post the link to the actual FAA rules.
    From what I've read on various sites, no one seems to know exactly what the law does say.
    One site says the ceiling limit is 200 feet, another site says 400 feet.
    While another site says the law says, "Under 10,000 feet with no sizeable payload.".

    Are there any current stock drones with a 10,000 foot range?
    Let alone the payload. DJI's drones may carry a few pounds but not much more.

    I want to know what the "EXACT" words are.
    So that when the kind officer is advising me of his version, I'll gladly show him what the exact law really says.

    Until the FAA comes up with some there are only "recommendations".
