    Proposed US Federal Reg? Give Cities added power up to 200 ft AGL?

    Please tell me I am reading this incorrectly, if you know the facts... One of our greatest heroes in helping to remove despotic and nonsensical drone regulations is Brenden Schulman, right? He worked on - and won - a couple of landmark cases when things were just getting started, and now he...
