Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS or “drones”) are expected to be hot sellers this Christmas shopping season, with the Consumer Electronics Association estimating 700,000 of them will be sold by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, the Federal Aviation Administration is struggling to get its arms around a possible registration system for these small aircraft, plus regulations to help ensure their safe commercial and recreational use.
Do you worry about your personal safety or your privacy with so many in the air? Or are you more worried that the heavy hand of government regulations will stifle beneficial or recreational uses of drones?
