I can foresee a new day of the Wild Wild West of the Sky,  Dog fights aloft ala ww1,  Snoopy and the Red Barron all over again.  Civilian drones doing battle with Establishment drones in a target rich environment.

Could be most intrresting.  I almost got me one at a local store the other day.

I was thinking about this the other day, for just over a hundred bucks, anyone can buy a mini chopper that could raise havoc on the Govt drones.
I say watch for Legislation prohibiting the elevation civilian drones will be allowed to fly, via remote control signal strength, like no more than a quarter mile in distance, any further will require a Federal license so they can monitor you activity..
