    recreational drone operators be required to carry liability insurance?
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I think they should have to wear Hawaiian shirts from the sales rack at West Marine.

    Along with recreational sailors, paddlers and power boaters, as well as all gun owners who all tend to kill or injure more people than drone pilots do. It's a pretty slippery slope once you get into it.

    Then again, you had better include anybody owning and using a baseball or baseball bat. You get hit in the face with either one during a game and it's likely to leave a serious mark. Slippery slope.

    Licensed drivers kill hundreds per day.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Do try to keep up.
    This is about insurance lot licencing.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    The AMA, Academy of Model Aeronautics is a self-supporting, non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote development of model aviation as a recognized hobby/sport and family recreational activity that is fun and educational.

    Insurance is their thing.

    Beat me to asking that. I'd prefer knowing which ones too, it's bad enough where I live & drive now I'd prefer avoiding where it could be even worse.

    "States With No Car Insurance Requirement

    There are just two states that don't require car insurance: New Hampshire and Virginia.
    Car insurance is not mandatory in New Hampshire, but
    residents are still responsible for damages resulting from a car accident up to $50,000 for liability and $25,000 for property damage. Drivers who cannot pay for damages can expect to have their licenses and registrations suspended.
    Virginia residents can skip getting car insurance if they pay the state $500 per year. However, that does not provide accident coverage of any kind. The driver who caused the accident is still liable."
