Well. I like that not every township of 50 yea-hoos can enact laws for modelers to abide by. But I don't like that each of 50 states can declare themselves the "controlling agency" for drone laws. I think what I saw was the state saying "we control drone laws at the state level". I like the positive control as long as it doesn't overreach federal law.

I think the new Illinois law says that if you are a responsible (or dumbass) drone user (or modeler), the state is the only entity that can regulate you. If I read it correctly the state has said we are going to stop every Rural Farming District from enacting their own laws.

It all sounds well and good but who gave the state of Illinois the right to create airspace laws? The FAA was founded specifically for the purpose of controlling the national airspace at the national level. The FAA was created in 1926 when, in part, the then new Airmail service was faced with having to zig-zag all over the map to avoid every 10 acre plot that didn't like airplanes flying over head. The FAA asserts that once you get 6" off the ground you are no longer in Illinois and have moved into the National Airspace.

There is nothing happening today that didn't happen nearly 100 years ago. From Wikipidia: The Air Commerce Act of May 20, 1926, is the cornerstone of the federal government's regulation of civil aviation. This landmark legislation was passed at the urging of the aviation industry, whose leaders believed the airplane could not reach its full commercial potential without federal action to improve and maintain safety standards.

I know you're only teasing - but, if anvil chunking becomes more popular and/or begins to interfere with drones reaching their "full commercial potential", the FAA will most certainly assert itself as the regulatory agency of "Anvil Tossing". The first 20 pound Amazon drone brought down by a Titleist will bring cries of foul (or is that "fore!" ) and demands that "something must be done!"

we're all familiar with "Hole in one" statement... new golf course yell:

"Drone in one!"

you heard it hear first folks...

But seriously the new red neck pass time will be shooting drones out of the sky, teens hacking them down and drone "Pirates"... which will lead to laws, which will lead to streets signs/ bilboards, and commercials where some old lady dies cause she didnt get her meds or defibrillator via emergency drone... Or little Suzy crying cause her teddy bear was shot down in transit.

my favorite scenario: You all familiar with loads of birds falling from the sky or fish (cause they were swept up by a storm vortex)... now imagine the carnage with a fleet of amazon drones... hilarious.

Ah the future of drones... I welcome it with a plethora of I told you so's...
