SA Drone laws restricting growth

The Drone regulations which came into effect in July in South Africa are considered amongst the strictest in the world. Yes if you are over the age of 18 you can still buy a drone for personal use but what you can do with it is severely restricted.

It is right that the proper legislation is in place when people want to use certain technology like this for commercial purposes but it should not hamper businesses that need the technology from getting access to it in a timely manner.

Most people understand the security reasons behind having laws on drone usage but many feel they are too stringent and are restricting the growth of technology in the country.
