Attention, Hobby Flyers: Come Monday Some Of You May Need An FAA Drone Pilot Certificate. Yes, Really.
Sorry this is in the wrong section of the forum
That article is a joke and very alarmist. The FAA is very clear with regards to Part 107. Hobbyists don't need to get their 107 license if they're not flying commercially.
They are looking in your backyard now! The eyes of Uncle Sam are everywhere!Typical Forbes BS. Basically, if you don't receive or try to receive compensation for doing something with your drone, you are not commercial.
Furthurmore, the FAA has neither the ability, manpower, etc., or the intention of policing the thousands of drones being sold that are over a half-pound. AFTER a crash or problem that involves local law enforcement, the FAA might get involved. My opinion.
