    ...still waiting on the rule/regulation/interpretation/whatever from the FAA that says someone "is probably" violating the law for flying a BLOS-capable "drone", whether or not the "drone" is being...

    Seems to me you are saying here that simply flying a BLOS-capable sUAS - whether engaging in BLOS ops or not - is illegal and will result in confiscation. I don't doubt you at all, I'm sure you're...

    The takeaway is, again, to John Q. Public - and sadly to too many rc'er's - "drone" = ONLY a multi-rotor hovering and flying apparatus, with...

    P83,

    The point of my post was that "everybody" thinks a "drone" is one of these multi-rotor gizmos. But, if it's an sUAS, and meets certain weight definitions, the FAA damn sure thinks it's a...
