    Drone manufacture and testing should not be eliminated, as it is an industrial opportunity for Oregon. On top of this, a tribe of people shouldn’t close its mind to new technology as it ultimately risks its own survival in warfare against other tribes. Only the brain dead would assume war has been eliminated as a continued risk to a people’s survival.

    This law will merely set-up innocent people for more tax hits by “revenuers”. Never forget, kites fly and come can carry cameras and criminals don’t care about the law, including some in government positions.

    Seems to me that we would be much better off if taliban drones were banned instead but typical oregon legislature …

    So if your 12 year old has one of the cheap air hog helicopters with a camera on it. The government thinks its a drone and could put you in jail for 20 years.

Destroying even more Jobs just becuase one day Floyd Prozanski woke up and decides He would not like to look out his window and see a drone.

    American Radio Relay League. During 1937, these two men successfully built and flew several large R/C gliders in the first public demonstration of controlled flights, in the course of which their sailplanes made more than 100 flights. A scheduled R/C event at the 1937 National Aeromodeling Championships attracted six entrants: Patrick Sweeney, Walter Good, Elmer Wasman, Chester Lanzo, Leo Weiss and B. Shiffman, Lanzo winning with the lightest (6 pounds) and simplest model plane, although his flight was rather erratic and lasted only several minutes. Sweeney and Wasman both had extremely short (5-second) flights when their aircraft took off, climbed steeply, stalled and crashed. Sweeney, however, had the distinction of being the first person to attempt a R/C flight in a national contest. The other three entrants were not even able to take off, although Good, with his twin brother William, persisted with developing R/C systems, culminating in first placings in the 1940 US Nationals and again after the end of World War II, in 1947. Their historic R/C model airplane, which they named the “Guff,” was presented to the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., in May, 1960, where it can be seen today.[4]
    I need to move to your State, I must assume there are an abundance of Jobs and no troubles there if Lawmakers can wast time on stuff like this

    I am all for prohibiting government and law enforcement from having the ability to fly Drones overhead without a warrant, but it should be legal for the public of America
