Default FAA & RETAILERS changing Laws

I look some Retail site on drones for children
I noticed there was no reference to the FAA.
But law is clear if the drone is over a 1/2lb. it need to be registered and soon will need a license.

The best is if live with 5 miles of on any size needing to file a flight authorization

If ever one ask the question to all retailers " WILL MY GRANCHILD / CHILD NEED TO FILE A FLIGHT AUTHORIZATION & NEED A LICENSE HIS/HER TO USE THE TOY"
To all ever internet retailer "Wal-Mart, Amazon, Target, and list goes on"
No one want here there children or grandchildren can not play with a toy in the backyard due to a fed law

Myself I am complying with law but not happy. Still in RC model airplain building

just copy and past the green print to ever retail site under drones

Just keep the drone under 1/2 pound and you have no problems.

Default Easy Authorization

Just use phone app or computer (Kittyhawk website) and it lets you request LAANC authorization. Is fast and went online last Monday. Easy.
