>> last year alone the faa reported more than 1400 close calls between drones and planes in the u.s. >> we just had something fly over us. i don't know if it was a drone or a balloon. it came quick. >> the fear, a drone could take out an engine just as a flock of geese went into the hudson river seven years ago. at virginia tech university researchers simulated a situation. the result, a catastrophic failure that could damage the engine and bring down a plane. they're required to register their drone with the faa. it's illegal to fly it within 500 miles of the airport. >> a drone was reported on the runway 27 right center line. i'm not picking up anything on radar. >> but the close calls keep coming. >> that was nbc's tom costello reporting. to prevent an accident, there's talk of requiring drones to carry tracking devices that would block them from flying

tiny, size matters. because while tiny homeowners share some similar values, the very designs of their tiny structures are all their own. ryan mitchell owns a tiny house in charlotte, north carolina, and tauted tiny living at a conference he organized recently in asheville. >> people are very skeptical. when you step into some of these houses like we have here at the conference, things just kind of click. >> i've lived here for four years and i built it myself. >> alicia kathleen built her 24 square foot home for just $200. there's no room for a fridge so she uses a clay pot to cool her food. >> this is just my plate and then inside i have some yogurt and cheese right now. >> she saved her earnings to pay off student loans but the inspiration behind the house was growing up with hoarders.
that makes her think about it and for me happiness is the freedom to be able to go where i want and do what i want and be able to help people because i'm not attached. >> reporter: if that's too tiny for you, a 200 square foot bus might seem homeyer. >> it's 110 gallon horse trough that we got. >> they converted this 1991 school bus into their home for about $17,000. it is 1/8 the size of their last home. >> the effort and time that it took to maintain a large house and the fact that we had it filled with a lot of things that we didn't necessarily need. >> reporter: as for the mcmansions of tiny, they measure in at about 340 square feet. this one will soon house a family of three. mike and jasmine devivo designed their space for home and office, a tiny headquarters for their fitness business after paying off the not so tiny $70,000 price tag they'll save hundreds

exist. what makes ours different is the size and construction. the efficiency is something that changes gradually over time. eventually all cars, engines, it will switch to more energy efficient model. >> what's the most challenging part of what you do? >> probably making sure that everything is running smoothly. like any project, you run into hitches. different things don't work correctly. overcoming those issues and trying to figure out what's wrong and making sure it works correctly. >> what's the funnest part? is this the thing you leave your other homework aside because you want to work on this? >> yeah. yeah. driving it is a lot of fun. >> i bet. how did you get the job? did you draw the short straw? >> shortest person, lightest weight. >> very nice. >> we've all driven at some point. the rest of us have to stick our feet over the car to fit in. we look crammed in the car. >> reach out your hand. i want to touch your hand so
