People Are Having A Rough Time Flying The Drones They Unwrapped This Holiday Season

This holiday season, so many of you purchased drones for loved ones that the Federal Aviation Administration felt it wise to launch a whole new website with several drone industry organizations.

KnowBeforeYouFly.com details all the federal regulations that apply to unmanned-aerial-vehicle-loving hobbyists. One may not, for example, fly a drone higher than 400 feet, or out of the operator's line of sight.

Luckily for the FAA, many seem barely able get their drones off the ground so far.

Enjoy.
