According to this article , the National Transportation Safety Board ruled that drones are considered aircraft's, and are subject to FAA regulations. All the same, whether it is a 777 or a tiny drone.
"(a) Whoever willfully—
(1) sets fire to, damages, destroys, disables, or wrecks any aircraft in the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States or any civil aircraft used, operated, or employed in interstate, overseas, or foreign air commerce;
...shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years or both."
