This board was created to discuss the hobbyist, commercial, law enforcement and military use of drones. While the use of missile-carrying Predator drones has garnered the most media attention and altered the way the U.S. conducts its war on terrorism, they are being increasingly used for commercial and law enforcement purposes. A serviceable drone can be purchased for a bit over $100.

In early 2012 Congress passed legislation calling on the FAA to write rules by 2015 that would govern the commercial operation of drones that can be used for everything from agricultural applications such as monitoring farmland and spraying pesticides to catching exotic-animal poachers and monitoring sports events. According to the Teal Group, an aerospace and defense consultancy, the global market for drones is expected to grow to $11.6 billion by 2023.

I recognize that the use of drones raises serious ethical and privacy issues and that many people have strong opinions on the subject. Strong opinions are welcome; name calling is not.
