Flying Drones in Central Oregon

What is legal, and what isn't?

Oregon has House Bill HB 3047 passed in 2017 that "Prohibits the use of UAS over private property in a manner that intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly harasses or annoys the owner or occupant of the property." The key word in the bill is "knowingly". I could be flying over someone's property legally under federal law but if a homeowner yells "Hey, you are spooking my horses!" and I fly back over and do it again, that's harassment and illegal under the state law.
