    The FAA sees BIG money here.... MILLIONS! Get a drone, pay me $150 plus!

    'The new drone rules set to go into effect Monday — known as Part 107 for the section of the federal aviation regulations — are expected to be a boon to commercial operators, lifting many current expensive and time-consuming requirements, including the need to have a manned aircraft pilot’s license and to stay more than 500 feet from people, cars and structures.

    500ft WTH? I knew I'd better keep that 300mm lens, now just rig that bad boy up to the inspire and I'll be good to go! :D

    The FAA doesn't charge the $150 for the test. Those are third party testing centers that charge that money.

    The $150 is for the Aeronautical test at a local testing faculty. Some prep courses are $99-$150 via third party companies. The 500 ft rule does not apply. Its 400 ft altitude, and you have a 400 ft radius of a structure or building and 400 ft from the upper most level of that building.....as long as you are in G airspace, or have a COA for B,C,D, or E airspace. Also, you can use FPV, as long as you have a VO.
