There's an ongoing battle going on with small UAS systems. The companies promoting their use is trying to use an old AC that allowed radio control model airplanes to be unregulated. Now, the FAA, industry groups and the Acedemy of Model Aeronautics are trying to draft new regulations that would regulate small or micro UAS and better define what a model airplane is.

There is a whole cottage industry built around camera systems and autopilot systems that can turn your adverage model airplane into an over the horizon, UAS plane.

I have a friend who's into RC airplanes. He said his club is having problems with folks using their facility to fly (and crash) larger and GPS guided models intended for eventual commercial use. They have always had a "no commerce" policy but now they are going to have to actually enforce it. Hobbyists want to stay separate so they don't end up regulated by the FARs too.
