today we have small aircraft flying every where,,there is no law requiring these planes to carry insurance.most are set up in a way that if it crashes and burns your home and kills your family,your screwed,planes unlike cars are not required insurance,i am sure most of these drones will be uninsured,with all these drones in the air crashes will become common.this is the biggest public safety issue ever to be in the united states.look at car wrecks,look how often military drones crash.com mon sense should say.do you want this craft over head,where it could crash into your house,into your school,hell with the record the military has crashing them,common sense say they will be a extreme public safety issue,from red necks shotting them down.mechanic malfunction,and operator area,it will be like living in a war zone.these are not little model planes like kids fly.drug dealers will use them more than cops.people could use them to dispose of hazard waste,the opportunities for illegal use are limitless.they should not be allowed to fly in America.hell let the people use balloons.least they will not do the damage,are easy to spot,and slow moving.but because they are easy to spot,people dont use them.

Tempting!
And if you live far enough out in the sticks, you'd have enough time afterwards to whip up some lemonade for the SWAT team :D
