    Still too early to tell what's going on, but some initial video footage and news is trickling out of a failed drone assassination of Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro from yesterday. This is being reported as the first drone assassination attempt on a head of state.

    Saw this last night on the news. Maybe there are 2 good reasons for drones now. The other is the ones they are using as spotters for fight the fires here.

    Federal aviation air space does not extend all the way to the ground. the elevation above ground surface varies by region and in some cases topology. Again though a plane could not be shot out of the sky simply because it was flying within a a few feet of the ground. Other statutes would have to come into play such as the Castle doctrine which has as many gray areas as there are shadows cast in the Sistine Chapel at noon
    Mebbe... I got's camo, low temperament of surveys in gen'l, tackdrivers and loads of handloads. and this neighborhood gets a little noisy...but the "...as many gray areas as there are shadows cast in the Sistine Chapel at noon" has me ROFL.

    re;Assassination attempt, wildfires, or just dumb perverts; inventors create faster than legislators. Which isn't good initially, and then their efforts are misdirected because a grand lack of misinterpreting potential harm. Things catch on WAY before someone thinks about killing the text apps in a car, or regulating potential of drones...Inventors probably don't need to hire lobbyists, they get questioned and can respond "...it's just a toy!"

    I have visited it, there is some of the art works which is almost impossible to see at certain times of the day due to the casting of shadows
    No doubt you've heard of Rome wasn't built in a day, but you can see it in a day with our tours. Forget that the Vatican city alone can take 2 or 3 full days to see all there is to see especially during peak seasons.

    Rome, Zurich, Berlin, Liege, London... I wish. Not on the "Do Not Fly List" my poor budget says "Can't". I've been delayed 7 months for a simple 12 hour round trip to Illinois for my Gorton 375 Tool Grinder, gave up on my forklift lowboy trailer in Utah 8 years ago. The ACME TriPlex from last fall only got here by accident...Some things I do not do well.

    Slight side step: I used to live at Sunrise Beach, Noosa Qld & had contracts to mow parkland & footpaths/nature strips. I always wore the highest protection ear muffs as mid mount mowers force the sound up at the operator on tractors: I was mowing the nature strip above the beach (about 20m ASL) when I saw a flash in front of my eyes. Then within a split second I was almost deafened (poor buggers on the beach & at road level). The flash & noise was from a couple of (our Outdated) F1 11's. they certainly broke the sound barrier & I almost filled my pants. Tre cafe owner nearby complained of broken glasses: maybe customers dropped them but I felt the RUSH of air, Over the years it happened a couple of more times & I doubt if anyone would have taken any heed if the airforce was reported: probably just a manovuere in national interest. Noosa has been listed as one of the "top ten" in world destination beaches but not "top gun" beaches. LOL

    The possibility of events like that is 1 of the reasons that the Ranchers and farmers around here and surrounding counties who also have hunting leases on their properties are starting to warn the hunters who buy the leases not to bring drones because on 1 hand they don't want people using them to spot the game, also it is against the law to heard game animals such as deer by the use of dogs or ATV's. Dogs may be used to flush birds only. The oil field companies often use them to check their pumping stations service pipelines and storage facilities but when they are being deployed around the area of over your property, the residents always receive a letter in advance of their intentions.

    Not sure how to feel about this one. On the one hand, how useful! On the other hand, it's scary to think that this is where urban planning is headed.
