Last night was the FAA Drone Pro webinar. A lot of good information in these slides.

People flying as hobbyists and not FULLY complying with ALL of the limitations stated in 49 USC 44809 (a), are governed by 14 CFR part 91 or part 107, depending on the weight of the drone.
I’ve been talking about the drone crash and collision issues for a long time. It is a hot topic with the FAA now. Things are getting serious.
Fixed-wing and helicopters can legally operate below 500 feet AGL in a number of situations. People assume they can’t. That is an incorrect assumption.

You may be aware that we can fly up to 400 feet above a structure but there is a big exception. A LAANC airspace has a hard ceiling and can leave you stuck down low without an additional special authorization.
