Drones are one of the hottest things in tech right now, but besides being fun to play with, they can be a menace to airports and a hindrance to firefighters. The rules around drone use are still being formed, but here's what you need to know so far.

1. Restrictions on flying

Every drone pilot must adhere to a few basic rules. Most important is the requirement to keep the drone below 400 feet, otherwise it can stray into controlled airspace and collide with a plane or helicopter. Don't fly a drone within 5 miles of any airport unless you have permission from air traffic control. National parks are also off-limits, as are sports stadiums on game days. Your drone must remain within sight at all times, and you must always give way to manned aviation if it comes close. More details are at the "Know Before You Fly" website and the and the FAA's drone website.

I read the article and it is very good. New rules and regulations dictate that what you can fly and where. Business, public and recreational users have different regulations. Failure to register the drone can lead to the harsher penalties. Advancement int the technology have made drone more practical and versatile.
