If you’re planning on making your way out to the good ol’ Washington DC the day of the inauguration we want to warn you, don’t fly your drones!
According to Mashable, “Piloting a drone in D.C., during the inauguration or otherwise, could earn you a very specific fine of $1,414. If it’s a company drone, the drone’s corporate owner could be subjected to a slightly less specific-sounding fine of $32,140.”
So much for those close up shots of ‘DJ Ravi Drums’ we wanted… oh wait.
In addition to the $1414 fine that you could be billed for flying your Drone at the inauguration, it would also cost you $85 for flying your drone in a DC national park. Totaling your final ticket to an unfortunate $1499.
Secret Service has stated, “violators will have all equipment confiscated as evidence”.
