    From the article:

    Since before Christmas, sheriff’s departments in the region have been bombarded with reports of large drones with blinking lights and wingspans of up to 6 feet flying over rural towns and open fields. The drones have unnerved residents, prompted a federal investigation and made international news, even though they may be perfectly legal. And still, they remain unexplained.

      I thought with the new FAA regulations all drones needed either an easily-readable license number printed on them like boats, or a transponder that would broadcast it. Is that not the case?

        The article seems to mention that those regs are proposed, but not in place.
