I have another word for those pesky drones I've been bothered by at several campgrounds....."SKEET".

Get use to them - they'll be around for a long time and in increasing numbers.

If I see one buzzing around my back yard while I am enjoying an adult beverage, I will probably see how far a load of 4 shot out of a 3 inch mag 12 gauge will travel.

New motto instead of "Don't Tread On Me" -- "Don't Hover On Me!"

If you live within 30 miles of the capital you can't fly ANYTHING over 1/2lb. Thanks to the antics of a few.

They ARE fun!
You do not need a pilots licence or even have to register a quadcopter for commercial use if the aircraft is under 2 kg.

I know you said "maybe" regarding the need for a pilot certificate, but could you possibly cite the FAA regulation requiring one? I'm not aware of such a requirement.

And Yes - fighting the FAA is often a hard battle,just like fighting the IRS.

Quote from FAA doc re Drone operation.
Commercial operations are authorized on a case-by-case basis. A commercial flight requires a certified aircraft, a licensed pilot and operating approval. The exemption process under Section 333 provides an additional avenue for commercial UAS operations.

Key word is "commercial". Flying one for sport is not commercial.
