    "Model aircraft enthusiast John Taylor brought his case against the FAA back in January 2016, shortly after the regulations came in place. The DC court of appeals ruled (PDF) in his favor, effectively classifying non-commercial drones as model aircraft and subject to the FAA's 2012 Modernization and Reform Act, which prohibited the agency from making new laws restricting flying hobbyist craft."

    Too bad, because I see trouble down the pike with these. They can be as dangerous as guns.

    All non commercial drones? I could have seen them having restrictions/ licensing on certain sizes and weights and capabilities.
