Just wondering if trappy and the 10K fine that was thrown out had anything to do with the current FAA drone regulations?

I think it was the start of it all. FAA got their hand smacked by the courts and didn't like it.

Pity the court didn't double the fine.

Wonder what mayhem him and his group have planned ?

Surely with the rule change in place the legal position and the fine imposed is clearer (and set by existing 'proved' legislation) so the chances of a successful prosecution are improved.
I suspect a prosecution or two is exactly what the FAA is after both to raise the Drone profile and to deter cheap drone sales.
