    So you cannot fly over anyone's property without having their permission first, and maybe best in writing too, or else you are trespassing. There goes the realtors who fly over some neighbor who objects to them shooting the house next to them for sale.

    The WA Rep. Jeff Morris (D) guy mentioned is also behind no drones over sea life within 600 feet too on another bill with his colleagues (WA HB1031). Surprised since he is the chairman of the WA Technology and Economic Development committee, but seems very anti-drone.

    Better buy a lot of acreage in WA soon or else you won't be able to fly anywhere. Legislators are going nuts writing anti-drone laws.

    Very badly worded.

    It defines a radio control aircraft as one that is totally manual and not capable of autonoumous flight.
    Since the Inspire (and other DJI offerings) are capable of autonoumous flight by way of a third party app using waypoint and auto take off and landing it could be argued you would be exempt.:p

    Typical idiot lawyer/congress wording something they know nothing about
