    The Feds recently announced that all drone owners have to register their drones or face fines.

    Some others think this is not sufficient to protect the public and have decided to address this new threat more appropriately

    You can tell from the audio that these are turbine powered and use standard J4 fuel. Not sure about the ordinance yet.

    Feds just want less red tape to keep their drones.

    Pro Tip to drone owners :grad: If there is a college in your town, fly over sororities the first few days of nice weather. Especially if it is right before Spring Break.

    people will think twice about sending drones up over the Hudson River if they are met by a small squadron of these in formation.

    that's too much work. just get a job in midtown and use the office windows in the warmer mornings. Women are always up on tar beach here as soon as the sun comes out again.

    Seems like a prime opportunity for Sasha Baron Cohen to show up in a Muslim outfit and try out a drone.

    Hilarity ensues

    tip? Uber? why would i do that? i don't carry cash anymore, and i don't even get to see the bill until about an hour after the ride is over. I do write great reviews for the guys though. if not for the demand pricing, i would never use a Yellow Cab again.

    at first i thought "ok, they are just large scale models with standard gas engines but then i saw the heat pumping out of the rear turbines on take off. those things are real jets!

    You are not supposed to accept tips anyway. Didn't you watch the orientation video?

    Pretty low for military.
    Just the ordinance would cost at least that much.

    i have wanted a personal turbine engine ever since i first saw an air show. if i every hit lotto that is first on my list. Sometimes all i need to do is to hear the sound of the turbine starting up.
