Your Own Personal DRONE!!

Now this would be one slick toy for the camping trips!



RC Drone over Michigan campground and Soo Locks:

If the above video doesn't display, here is the U-Tube link: http://youtu.be/ZRUEHaI-seM

The guy that owns the drone in the above video also has a nice web site/blog about his drone & MH travels as well: http://www.outsideourbubble.com/

That drone is neat. My grandson has a RC airplane with a small camera which we're taking to the campground with us as soon as it gets warmer. I would bet he would gladly swap his airplane for this drone.

Pretty neat, but I wonder about height restrictions - not sure, but looks as though it might be able to get up into the altitude range of small aircraft, which could be a problem . . . .

It'll be really cool when one comes swooping over your pool next summer or hovering outside your bedroom window. I have declared my property to be a "no fly" zone and UAV's will be shot down on sight.

That's nice, but its really irresponsible to fly an RC aircraft intentionally overhead of everyone in the campground. Also breaking several AMA rules in the process. It was really cool flying over the water getting the barge shots.

Only because I'm still learning and want to understand - What is the AMA and what rules? I did google AMA and only get American Motorcycle Association and American Medical Association and I don't think they are the correct groups or rules.

I was also wondering what AMA stood for.
