    The task force of course. ;)

    Leave to to the government to make things more expensive and complicated than it needs to be.

    That said I am already applying for my concealed drone permit.

    Stupid people who fly drones around fires and over restricted areas have caused this.
    Registration is silly but shooting them down is wasteful.

    The obvious problem is in incursion into controlled airspace. That's been unlawful for quite some time. Any dope with enough scratch to buy a GoPro and a drone isn't entitled to bring down an airliner on take-off or landing. Silly? Hardly.

    A little Phantom drone wouldn't do anything to a 747 or above. Smaller planes, yeah.

    Either way most are limited to 400ft, which is the air space that RC planes used for decades with no problem.

    But taking one down in level flight at low altitude is perfectly fine? ;)

    I really don't see the difference between these and RC planes, other than that they're a bit more common at the moment. The craze will pass.
