From the article:

For example, an ongoing case in Kentucky is pondering vertical property ownership. How high off the ground do you need to go before it is no longer considered your land? Does the FAA have the right to govern what you fly in your back garden?


Yup, Father shoots down drone diorectly over his yard, Kentucky. Glad to hear they are pondering now :) Pondering never killed anyone.

I have been led to believe this is an excellent film. One of Alan Rickman's last, as well.

Yes they do an In Memoriam at the end and he has a brilliant moment in it towards the end about "the cost of war".

Mrs. Lak just ordered not one but two (count 'em, TWO) mini drones, $99 for the pair. I'm joining the Drone Generation. They have little Bluetooth HD cameras so I can spy on my neighbors. Be useful out on the boat, I imagine.

You can view the pics on your smartphone I imagine? They'd be useful on woods hikes when I'm wondering which way to head, send them above the canopy to get a look around.
Where'd you order them from?

Not sure where she got them, and don't know much about the specs. Can't be too sophisticated at 2 for $99. Drones designed for marine usage are freaking expensive, upwards of a grand, so this is a test of their utility. I'll keep you updated.
