BBC: Where you can and can't fly a drone

Thinking of getting yourself a copter with a camera for Christmas? BBC has a nice story about current-and upcoming legislation in the UK and Europe:

 

"Remote controlled aircraft used to be a niche hobby. It took time to build them and skill to operate them. Today drones are cheap, quick to get in the air and you can operate them on a smartphone or tablet. Today the thrill is not so much operating a model aircraft as having a flying camera.

Across the world, rules are being drawn up or refined to deal with the potential dangers. But they are already being flouted.

An unidentified drone came close to hitting an Airbus A320 as it landed at London's Heathrow during the summer."
