FAA proposes new rules for UAVs/drones

FAA proposes new rules for UAVs/drones. New rules would make flying drones under 55lbs for business easier. Pilots to be 17 years or older, pass written aeronautics test and vetted by TSA, but no private pilots license needed. Speeds up to 100mph and heights below 500 feet are suggested. Also suggested are more flexible rules on micro-drones under 4.4lbs (2kg).
