That rule is so broad, basically stating that a private citizen cannot even possess any craft that is controlled remotely that can capture an image of objects on the ground. And the fine and possible imprisonment section. Good gosh man let's hope stupidity like this is not even considered. Let's hope lawmakers of most of the other states in the US do not follow suit. If it's any indication of the the ill educated and inept decisions that have been made lately by some of these folks, this could be trouble if states start doing this individually. One right after another slowly chipped away from the citizens of this country.

(2) “Drone” means an unmanned flying machine that is capable of:
(a) Capturing images of objects or people on the ground or in the air;
(b) Intercepting communications on the ground or in the air; or
(c) Firing a bullet or other projectile.

"A person who possesses or controls a drone in violation of subsection (1) of this section
and uses the drone to capture an image of a person or object on the ground or in the
air commits a Class A misdemeanor."

All the kids in Oregon are going to be guilty of a crime when they fly their toy helicopters with the onboard camera that their parents bought at Walmart for their birthday..

Also, I don't know what "Airspace" Oregon thinks they control since the Federal Government is soley responsible for all of the USA airspace...

Of course the old white men at the AMA aren't saying a damn thing about all this, since "those infernal machines don't have a place in this hobby, anyways!"

Bill 71, makes its own definition of what is a drone.
This Oregon bill is written so poorly that leaves to interpretation than even a kite can pose as a threat.

Here is how it starts:
copied from: http://www.leg.state.or.us/13reg/me...b0071.intro.pdf

77th OREGON LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY--2013 Regular Session
Senate Bill 71
Printed pursuant to Senate Interim Rule 213.28 by order of the President of the Senate in conformance with pre-
session filing rules, indicating neither advocacy nor opposition on the part of the President (at the request
of Senate Interim Committee on Judiciary)

SUMMARY

The following summary is not prepared by the sponsors of the measure and is not a part of the body thereof subject to consideration by the Legislative Assembly. It is an editor’s brief statement of the essential features of the measure as introduced.
Imposes restrictions on use of drones by private parties and public entities. Creates various crimes for unauthorized use of drones. Punishes by maximum of 20 years’ imprisonment, $375,000 fine, or both.
Directs Department of State Police to establish registry of certain drones used by public bodies.
Permits Oregon Department of Aviation to issue licenses for use of drones.
Declares emergency, effective on passage.

A BILL FOR AN ACT
Relating to drones; and declaring an emergency.
Be It Enacted by the People of the State of Oregon:
SECTION 1. As used in sections 1 to 7 of this 2013 Act:
(1) “Airspace of Oregon” means the space above the ground that is not part of airspace governed by federal law.
(2) “Drone” means an unmanned flying machine that is capable of:
(a) Capturing images of objects or people on the ground or in the air;
(b) Intercepting communications on the ground or in the air; or
(c) Firing a bullet or other projectile.
(3) “Public body” has the meaning given in ORS 174.109.
SECTION 2. (1) A person may not possess or control a drone unless permitted to do so by the federal government or by the Oregon Department of Aviation under section 7 of this 2013 Act.
(2) A person who possesses or controls a drone in violation of subsection (1) of this section commits a Class B misdemeanor.
(3) A person who possesses or controls a drone in violation of subsection (1) of this section and uses the drone to capture an image of a person or object on the ground or in the air commits a Class A misdemeanor.
(4) A person who possesses or controls a drone in violation of subsection (1) of this section and uses the drone to fire a bullet or other projectile commits a Class C felony.
(5) A person who possesses or controls a drone for the purpose of hunting or stalking game commits a Class C felony.
(6) A person who possesses or controls a drone and causes the drone to fire a bullet or other projectile at an aircraft while the aircraft is in the air, or intentionally causes or attempts to cause the drone to crash into an aircraft while the aircraft is in the air, commits
a Class A felony.
(7) A person who gains unauthorized control over a drone commits a Class A misdemeanor.

and on and on it goes

It reads like a moron who does not know current law, woke up in banana country and decided to play dictator.

Notice the intent is likely to make money off permits/licenses, because someone has to pay for all this new bureaucracy...

Can't wait for the next chapter.

Do you have proof of that? Because, actually, they are. http://amablog.modelaircraft.org/am...salation-grows/
