Hawaii Man Tased and Arrested Flying 3 Inch Drone

It’s hard to know from news reports whether Mr. Sanders in fact resisted arrest and whether the Park ranger was justified in tasing and arresting him. But it’s clear to me that the encounter would never have been precipitated in the first place if 3 inch flying toys were not considered “unmanned aircraft” subject to manned aircraft rules. It seems high time to me for Congress to step in and enact reasonable rules for the operation of unmanned aircraft, including not considering toys below a certain size to fall within the definition of aircraft. It might look to what other aviation safety agencies are proposing. For example, the European Aviation Safety Agency is proposing to exclude flying toys under 500 grams from its regulatory scheme.

Update.  Ranger Rick: “I don’t take no lip, with this cannon on my hip.”
