uh huh you think DOT or FAA is going to allow drones to fly over traffic? at any altitude? as for the other stuff I'm not talking about main transit. I'm talking last mile. Last mile where the drone is dealing with say this Or waiting at the security door at one of these zillion places in culver city (or the rest of LA.) or flying lower over house. Or how does it deliver to an apartment building? Block the door or just land and wait? (and be crushed by people pissed off that there is a drone blocking their apartment entrance. I would love to see this in Brooklyn any major downtown area. I would love to be the first person who has a drone fail over my car on the road or my property.

Oh your right. Just like how Santa monica was forced by the FAA to limit flights into Santa monica Air port. OH WAIT. No one wants a new air port anywhere near them so I can't imagine that say West Hollywood, or Chesterfield Mo, or King of Prussia PA or Englewood CO or a zillion other Suburbs that don't want airports give a rats ass what the FAA wants. Lets see how this works out for the FAA.

You might want to check on the height of those poles because the SCOTUS rulling quite clearly says. "But, a landowner may make any legitimate use of their property that they want, even if it interferes with aircraft overflying the land." that also means Air craft aren't allowed to interfere with your peaceful enjoyment of your land. IE I like to fly chinese kits and can legally leave them airborne over my property.

People often forget that the air space over your property to like 300 feet is the property owners and they can and have had people arrested for trespassing for their drones being in their airspace. This has already been to many a court case over air rights. The FAA doesn't even if made legal to fly have the right to say you can fly in a private properties airspace. It would be interesting to see how many nets people put up to their max air space if people start flying drones with valuable stuff over their property. The FAA has ZERO say over your air rights and it varies by state as to how high they go. So they would pretty much be limited to following the roads.

huh see thats exactly how my Univ worked. Then again I went to a practical college not a Liberal arts college. There is pretty good size difference between the 2 which is why I picked RIT.

No dude. They took a physical thing from where it belonged without permission. Then they copied it. The 500 or so people that worked on it not withstanding the productio. Company is publicly traded and probably has more then a few 401k invested in them because of the previous 2 movies return on investment. So know the movie has less value will generate less return and your dad is going to have to blow other men in the park because to make up the difference in what the movie would predictably have made. See thats why its a crime. Because not only rich people own stocks in companies like lions gate, warnwr etc... but you go with that its not hurting anyone argument and frame it next to your participation medal.
