I hope that the FAA shoots this kind of stuff down. The skys are regulated by one agency not every granny and attention getter out there. We need one set of rules not a hodgepodge.

Same goes for the national park service.

Hopefully, Trump will put an end to this micromanagement of the National Air Space. Every time the elected officials place restrictions on us, foreign business increase their technological advantage over US citizens and businesses. You can't make America great this way.

I lived in O'ville from 1973 to 1989. Since then the political landscape has changed from being for the people to being for the moneyed elites. I don't expect a good outcome for drone user rights to come from the City Commission.

The statute: Statute 934.50: (b)
A person, a state agency, or a political subdivision in s. 11.45 may not use a drone equipped with an imaging device to record an image of privately owned real property or the owner, tenant, occupant, invitee, or license such property with the intent to conduct surveillance on the individual or property captured in the image.
The statute covers “INTENT” Proving intent would be very difficult, especially since there is no intent to begin with.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Texas has had a reg./law very similar to that for a few years. We don't hear much about it now after things have settled out. But I also quit flying FPV shortly after it was enacted. And the FAA hammered us.

423.003 OFFENSE: ILLEGAL USE OF UNMANNED AIRCRAFT TO CAPTURE IMAGE

(A) Illegal to use unmanned aircraft to capture an image of a person or private property with the intent to conduct surveillance of that person or property...

423.006 CIVIL ACTION

(A) an owner or tenant of a property can bring a civil action to:
(1) prevent a violation of 003 or 004.
(2) recover a civil penalty of
(a) $5,000 per episode (for all images)
(b) $10,000 per episode if distributed
(3) recover actual damages if the person displays with malice.

Avoid the 'default' settings in life, Fat Dumb and Poor!!!

Orlando restrictions seem reasonable.

But just the first steps toward more regulations.

If approved, the proposed regulation would prohibit areas of launch, operation and landing within the following conditions:

At or within 500 feet of any venue such as the Amway Center, Camping World Stadium, Harry P. Leu Gardens, The Mennello Museum of American Art, The Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, and any other building designated as a venue by the executive director of Orlando venues or the city council

At or within 500 feet of any outdoor public assembly described as any celebration, gathering, ceremony, show exhibition, concert, pageant or rally that attracts more than 100 people

At or within 500 feet of an event with more than 1,000 people in attendance.

At or within any county or municipal detention facility

If any part of the proposed law is broken, police officers could intervene and issue an citation.

GyroFreak-

You find that reasonable?! The most common use for "drones" is aerial photography. The restricted areas you listed are what is most likely to be photographed/video recorded. Go to any outdoor concert or sporting event and there will likely be a multirotor videoing the event. Unfortunately, most of the time the multirotor is being operated by the production crew to be used as advertising or for commercial profit.

Seems like freedom and individual rights in America is a dying concept.
