    The only good purpose for drones - shot down by FAA - 4 beer delivery

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/31/tech/i...faa/index.html

    Local brewery Lakemaid was testing a new drone delivery system to airlift frosty cases of beer to fishermen holed up in ice shacks on Mille Lacs Lake. After spotting a Lakemaid YouTube video that went up last week of one of the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) on a test run, the Federal Aviation Administration contacted Lakemaid and told the company to stop.

    I have not seen the letter so .. wondering what authority they are saying grants them the power to demand a shutdown of deliveries.

    The use of drones is a novel concept ... hence, my posting here. Oddly enough, the courts have ruled that a fly-over of your property is not a search that requires a warrant.

    "Anything we haven't ruled is allowable isn't allowed"?
