I have read many posts on this topic, here on POTN. . Many people have, for the past several months, spoken about the dire necessity of doing everything "by the book" and studying all of the related laws to make sure that one is in full compliance when using a drone. . For me, this makes little sense.
I think that the area in which one uses the drone may have something to do with it.
I get the feeling, when reading posts on the topic, that some of you are trying to use drones in areas where there are roads, houses, parks, power lines, airports, etc. . I guess if you want to use a drone in an area where there is a human population, then it may makes sense to abide by all of the complex rules.
However, I always associated drones with wilderness areas......after all, I can't understand why anyone would want their arial videos and stills cluttered up with a bunch of man-made objects.
Below is an area near my place, which is representative of the region in which I live. . There are vast expanses of forests and mountains with nary a building or a paved road or an airport for miles and miles and miles. . And these areas are barely ever patrolled by any kind of authorities - I have spent entire weekends in these areas and never seen or heard another human or another vehicle.

For those who only want to use drones in these types of areas, I don't see the sense in registration, filing flight plans and schedules, etc. .
Just go fly the thing, because there are no humans anywhere who will ever know you or your drone were even there. .
And if there did happen to be somebody there, they wouldn't care a whit that you are flying a drone, anyway...
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".
