    what caliber gun is that i am surprised the recoil doesnt affect the drone much

    oh and thanks to this guy for spoiling it for anyone that likes these toys i am sure the gov will come swooping in to make these things illegal now

    The FAA already has quite a few laws in place for drones. Although I don't see anything about attached weapons.

    • Fly no higher than 400 feet and remain below any surrounding obstacles when possible.
    • Keep your sUAS in eyesight at all times, and use an observer to assist if needed.
    • Remain well clear of and do not interfere with manned aircraft operations, and you must see and avoid other aircraft and obstacles at all times.
    • Do not intentionally fly over unprotected persons or moving vehicles, and remain at least 25 feet away from individuals and vulnerable property.
    • Contact the airport or control tower before flying within five miles of an airport.
    • Do not fly in adverse weather conditions such as in high winds or reduced visibility.
    • Do not fly under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
    • Ensure the operating environment is safe and that the operator is competent and proficient in the operation of the sUAS.
    • Do not fly near or over sensitive infrastructure or property such as power stations, water treatment facilities, correctional facilities, heavily traveled roadways, government facilities, etc.
    • Check and follow all local laws and ordinances before flying over private property.
    • Do not conduct surveillance or photograph persons in areas where there is an expectation of privacy without the individual’s permission (see AMA’s privacy policy).

    Pay him a visit for what? What laws has he broken? This really doesnt seem all that hard a thing to do, why would they be surprised someone could do it? It doesnt appear he is going to be able to aim worth a shit using this anyhow.

    Then again, you don't exactly have to fly into a yard to shoot someone there.
