The first time someone dies because a drone being operated unsafely will result in the usual kneejerk reaction from our friends in Congress.


Before that happens we will have 5 million drones flying around. (Or more) The cats out of the bag. Can't make them illegal now, but they could impose some heavy penalties for incidents. Yet Congress will never fund enforcement activity.

Never even said that they would ban them, but, a heavy handed response from the folks up on the hill is a real possibility.
The possibility of stuff like a "drone jammer" is a real possibility.

Oh yes. I expect we will start seeing those at every large event soon, like sporting, politics and more. Some seem to be very directional, so they could take down a rogue drone and not affect an approved one being used.

Thinking more along the line of use at an activity that has a lot of aircraft, like a wild fire or after a tornado or hurricane.
