Guarantee his defense is going to be one of the following, or a combination of them:

Ignorance of the laws ("I didn't know!"

Why pick on me" ("But they didn't arrest any of those other people doing (various infractions of various laws)! Why are you singling me out?")
Conspiracy ("The Government doesn't want me to show you the Truth! My drone would have revealed Big Secrets that THEY don't want you to know about!")
Or, the ever popular ("I'm being targeted because I'm a (racial group, religious group, ethnic group, sexual preference group, take your pick)!")

Most recently, the FAA has launched a campaign to make the public aware of a No Drone Zone in the area around Washington, D.C.

"Federal rules prohibit any aircraft from operating in the Flight Restricted Zone around our nation's capital without specific approval," said U.S. transportation secretary Anthony Foxx. "That includes all unmanned aircraft."
