It's a work in progress but still interesting...

Interesting one of the comments in the article:

For instance, youíll see on the map below that there isnít a no-fly area over Berkeley Lab, which sits in the greyed area in the hills above UC Berkeley. Similarly, there is no zone marked around Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, one of the countryís two nuclear weapons labs. I have a call into the lab to check on the rules*, but in the meantime, if you have a drone, just know that in 2006, the lab acquired a Gatling gun that has a range of 1 mile and can fire 4,000 rounds a minute.

There's a no zone right over my house, too. And I'm an excellent AirSoft shot from inside the hot tub.

Interesting. They show McCarran and North Las Vegas airports, as well as the air force base, but they don't have a circle around Henderson Executive airport.

I fly in the open desert, well away from the areas we're supposed to avoid. There's an official RC airfield just about a mile or two away. I'm clear.

This is stupid. People have been flying helicopters and hobby planes for years. Why the deal about the drones???
