    Fire and Rescue vehicles responded to reports of multiple suicide jumpers at the FAA Headquarters in Washington D.C. today. The rash of desperate FAA regulators who turned to the rooftop as their only hope of finding relief from the pressures of regulating the drone industry were apparently spurred on by the announcement from quadcopter giant DJI. The industry leader announced its newest product to the public via internet videos and interviews.

    The product that brought such angst to the FAA workers was a revolutionary personal quadcopter capable of carrying a person. The personal aircraft has been named the Spectre and is haunting the aviation regulators with new challenges in controlling the skies. The craft’s light weight places it in the ultralight category of aircraft which do not require a pilot’s license to operate. And the projected cost of $10,000 makes it affordable for a great many quadcopter enthusiasts that wish to make the leap from a remote controlled vehicle to a single seat aircraft.

    The FAA Headquaters in Washington was not the only scene of mass jumpers, as emergency personnel responded to calls from FAA offices across the nation. One employee was quoted as screaming, “Everyone wants to fly! Everyone! It’s just too much!” The employee was helped down from a tree which broke his fall after his jump from the FAA rooftop. The employee suffered only minor bruises and lacerations.

    I see more and more light aviation based on today's quadcopter tech. You gotta know the FAA is worried about where this is all going.
