You Won’t Believe But The First Drones Ever Were Used In WWI To Drop Bombs
800,000 obedient terrified rubes can't be wrong... or can they...
The FAA is now refunding people who registered their drones

I worked for 10 Tanker last season. That's the DC-10 firefighter operator. Those engines are fragile, it takes little to shell one. Now imagine they're pulling out of a valley at 200' at full power and they ingest a drone.
Model aircraft have traditionally been flown by someone with full attention on the model standing <100 yards away. Drones easily fly out of sight, I'm all for tightening the rules up concerning them. Too many ejits use them dangerously within visible range, too.
It's pretty silly that a helicopter and shot gun may be needed to clear areas for firefighting.
