In an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) was unhappy with the lack of regulation of unmanned aerial vehicles which was brought to her attention by a demonstration outside her home, where the senator claimed she faced a “drone.”
In fact she faced a toy helicopter that crashed so many times outside the senators home during the Code Pink protest the group resorted to dangling it from a string. An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or drone, is controlled at different times both remotely by a pilot and autonomously or computer-controlled while a Radio-Controlled Aircraft (RCA) is completely pilot controlled with a handheld radio transmitter.
FEINSTEIN: “I’m in my home and there’s a demonstration out front, and I go to peek out the window and there’s a drone facing me.
