Drones are banned in SA with immediate effect

Which posed the question when our DCA will follow suit? On the one hand I am peeved, because I see drones as a potentially very useful farming tool. On the other hand, without flight rules that both exist and are adhered to, it is only a question of time until we will have a mid-air collision between a drone and manned aircraft, and our microlights are certainly prime candidates.

The best position for a pitot tube is at 500' and up.
