Yes, you may have drones for Christmas, just follow the FAA's rules
FAA teaches drone owners how not to get on their naughty list this Christmas

In one of the cutest commercials ever filmed by a government agency, the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) released a YouTube video about do's and don'ts for flying drones.

While the FAA is still pinning down the finer details of drone regulations, at the very least it isn't banning drones outright thus letting big kids and small fly their drones...within acceptable parameters, of course.

Drones for you and me

You have to love a YouTube video description that sounds like this: "Did you get a new unmanned aircraft for the holidays? Stay off the naughty list!"

Drones have been big news (and big business) this year, with everyone getting on the drone bandwagon from big corporations like Facebook and Google to smaller operations and people who just use them to walk the dog.

Prediction: there'll be ever more new applications for drones and the FAA will probably be ready with a basic set of regulations by next year. The money question is, though, whether Amazon will succeed in its plan to have drone deliveries.
