It was all about the class of airspace and how to recognize it and how to obtain the waivers necessary to fly (if possible). I know there are lots of rules outside the scope of the FAA 107 exam which is troublesome.

One thing is for certain, these laws will evolve rapidly.
They are definitely evolving as we speak. Heck, there might be a new law or rule before I finish typing this.....

They have opened up the airport vicinity flights somewhat with LAANC, the Secretary of Transportation has recommended ending the night flight restriction and the flight over people and so on.

I think the FAA and Congress did not anticipate this drone rapid expansion and are having to play catch-up.

They were told over and over again by industry experts that it would be exponential growth, they just ignored the warnings.

I think something like Zipline in Rwanda would be awesome here in the US. Lots of safety built into their system.
