Unmanned aerial systems are regulated by the FAA, and have several restrictions as to when and where you can fly:
- Fly no higher than 400 feet and remain below any surrounding obstacles when possible.
- Flown within the line of sight of the operator
- During daylight conditions
- Inside Class G (uncontrolled) airspace and more than five miles from any airport or other location with aviation activities.
While UAV's are regulated by the FAA in the US, the above are _ONLY_ recommendations. Also, you _can_ fly within 5 miles of an airport as long as you notify the tower beforehand. The no fly area of an airport is far less than 5 miles.
