    Newly released FAA docs regarding UAV sightings.

    My favorite part: "In at least a couple cases, the FAA concluded the object sighted was likely a weather balloon or party balloons."

    What are the chances CNN and FOX News will be running a correction story? Zero?

    Amazing how many reports are from other operators dropping the dime on their competition.

    "Dear FAA, Blue Sky Photography is using a drone for aerial work and don't have authorization."

    or

    "Dear FAA, XYZ Real Estate is using a drone for real estate and I can't, so please make them stop."

    Business isn't playground games. If you put the time and money into doing it legally, then by all means eat the cheese on the people who are taking a shortcut. I see nothing wrong with that.

    I am a Crime Scene Investigator with a large central U.S. State, why you need my name I don't know. If you figure out the state just put .gov after it and whalla.. you have my website. I can assure you we are doing it legally.
