If you were hoping to capture some aerial shots at the upcoming NASCAR events, not so fast. DroneShield will cover all the races at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, and if you try to fly a drone – they will take it down.
This Friday, federal appeals court in Washington D.C. decided that Federal Aviation Administration has no right to require hobbyists to register their camera drones and model aircraft. As SF Gate reports, this decision came after a drone hobbyist John Taylor filed a claim against the FAA in 2016. He claimed that they don’t have the right to force him to register his aircraft.
As U.S. Circuit Judge Brett Kavanaugh states, “Taylor does not think that the FAA had the statutory authority to issue the registration rule and require him to register.” And according to the judge, he is right.
