Jeff Pearl Not only was he flying his drone in a restricted air space, but interfered with a helicopter that had to take evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision. I can see why he was arrested.

 You can buy drones anywhere.  Online, office supply stores, etc.   But they are regulated by the FAA.   Before buying one, a person should educate themself on the requirements.

I do think that flying a drone into the direct path of a flying helicopter should be a no-no and there should be some sort of consequences for doing so. Confiscate the drone!

Yes, I did.  There's so many new issues that using drones has raised.  Not just restricted space, but private space.  i.e. homes.  This brings into play an interesting RE rights question.  When you buy a property, what, exactly are you buying?

As a virtual tour photographer I can assure you that someone will try to shoot it down.  During the madfly days helicopters were being shot at doing their spraying job.  I will not hire one photographer either.
