City bans drones to their backyard

Recommended Posts

The city of Garfield banned flying drones under hobby rules to folks' own property - basically their own yards. I think more cities will continue down this path.

Here's the link to the article: City basically bans drones beyond backyard: http://www.northjersey.com/story/news/bergen/garfield/2017/06/07/city-basically-bans-drones-beyond-backyard/371540001/

For some reason the newspaper reported it was only ok to fly drones above 400' and not under.

I think more communities will go down this route and restrict flying under the hobby rules to not allow drones to fly over towns.

According to the article, this is mainly targeting hobbyist and recreational flights. The article wasn't fact-checked very rigorously either. There are a few factually incorrect statements.
