Drones banned from flying in US national parks

    You can no longer fly and buzz in US national parks: the government's National Park Service has banned the use of drones in 401 parks under their jurisdiction.

    The reasons for the ban are explained in approximately the following way: these drones have completely blossomed out, scare animals, threaten climbers and distract visitors from contemplating the beauties of nature by the annoying “ffm” overhead. It is important to restrain them until the situation is out of control.

    Now there is a temporary (without specifying how much temporary) ban , and officials are threatening to develop full rules already after 18 months. It is expected that an exception will be made for research, high-altitude and rescue, fire drones, as well as club launches.
