Guy takes his hexacopter to 1000m (3300 ft) - above the clouds, but then has control issues and is unable to get it back before the battery goes out. (It's in Sweden.)

Flying it into IMC over a city? No worries -- he's done it before!

Putz.

>> Stadium TFR Violation By Drone?

Well, since anything that flies is an aircraft, and TFRs presumably apply to all aircraft, I guess any kid flying a model airplane within the area covered by a TFR would be in violation. The eagle is probably cool since he's just hauling a Go-Pro and the camera wasn't specifically designed to fly - but those mechanical birds they sell at county fairs might be in trouble.

With the size of the TFRs established around VIP travel, there's a lot of room for FAA fundraising through fines.

Many TFRs DO apply to model aircraft.

When the POTUS heads to HNL, it shuts down ALL model flying on Oahu due to the TFR.

Also, the TFRs for the major party conventions shut down model flying.

So they do, sometimes, although I think the "national defense airspace" declaration might be the overriding factor there beyond just a straight TFR. Their use of the "...following operations are not authorized..." construct is interesting, since it implies that authorization is required for the laundry list of activities they want to prevent from occurring.

Another use for a drone: Deep-fry a turkey from a safe distance

I suppose that would apply to rubber band powered balsa wood craft . . . .
