My name is Jerry and I was a Senior Software Developer at Microsoft for 15 years working on the Windows Operating System.
On October 17th, 2015 the Department of Transportation announced a new law that would require federal level registration of your drones & quadcopters even if they are only recreational and not commercial. This could mean DJI Phantoms and other recreational out of box aircraft. They are planning to have the law in place and active in December with stiff fines for people that don't retroactively register aircraft they already own!

Questions & Answers
Q) Why did you show a gun in the shoot, I find guns highly offensive.
A) To illustrate the point that criminals don't follow laws and the registration of objects in our lives prove as both an invasion of privacy and a huge inconvenience for hobby level drone owners. Having the government know exactly what you own means they know where to go to take it away if they change their minds and take it away.
Q) Why does the audio suck?
A) We had some trouble with our main audio equipment and had to revert to a backup in post editing.
Q) I don't think this is a big deal
A) Tell us why down in the comments!
Q) That sucks, RC Helicopters and Planes don't have these laws.
A) Guess again, this new law considered anything that is unmanned that flies a drone now. That includes your helicopters, airplanes, airships, etc. If it doesn't have a string connecting it to the ground it's included.
