Expect an announcement from the FAA today regarding sUAS

There is a conference currently taking place in Atlanta and some of the attendees have indicated that there will be an announcement from the FAA later today affecting sUAS operators. Some are speculating a loosening of the visual line of sight restriction given some reports that surfaced in the media recently that they were considering that possibility.

Just a heads up...

Looks like this was nothing more than a handout for some large corporations. Then there was this gem:

"What we want to ensure is that the industry is not in any way finding themselves needing to take a step back because we do something too fast."

Certainly wasn't the kind of news that I was hoping to hear. They also announced a b4ufly app for smartphones that will be in beta testing this summer and they said they've already spent over 700K developing the app. That's seems like a lot to me.
