Update 201602.26

After 63 years of flying without incident, I have been forced to get rid of all my aircraft weighing 0.55 lbs. (or above) because of Google's Eric Schmidt, Politicians, the FAA, and inability of AMA to prevent government registration.

FAA Finally Admits Names And Home Addresses In Drone Registry Will Be Publicly Available

I am now focusing on nano drones, helicopters, and planes weighing less than government registration requirement, rc vehicles, and spending more time on robotics.
