I'm Thinking of Getting a Drone

Recommended Posts

Hope this is the right forum for this!

Last night watching the fireworks, our group counted at least 7 drones hovering in the area. So I've been doing some half-assed research on models and FAA regs.

What I'm not finding (so far) are the nav light requirements. I saw most of them last night sporting the same red/green lights as regular aircraft. But one only had a white strobe.

Anyone here really up to speed on this tech'y? Do you have any advice for someone that doesn't play video games?

I'd love to get a drone one day. Attach some nerf missiles. But seriously I do want one eventually. So I'll be reading this looking out for info if someone knows more!

A buddy of mine is coming in for the NAS Oceana airshow in Sept. and is planning on bringing his. I'm afraid the hook will be set after a little instruction.

Heh heh...nerf missiles. Wish I had the $$$ for one with a live-cam feed to a laptop or phone!
