"Clickbait.... Not at all. The issue ia all public areas. Parks I agree on and public beaches that are used for holidays etc, sun bathing and community use. The problem is all public areas. In the uk that accounts for vertually anyware to fly. Even…"

"I don't see how this could be anything other than a really good thing.  Flying drones in parks and beaches is inherently stupid in the first place.  I love flying drones but I also like chilling out or taking the dogs for a walk in…"

Peter Seddon commented on lee winterson's blog post Drone ban coming soon in the UK?
"I think your title is a little hysterical. PSPO's are local orders that could ban or limit flying in specified public places where it is deemed to be a public nuisance. There is a consultation prior to the introduction of an order which ensures…"

Drone Pilots - Do we really learn anything from Youtube? collaborate and share will it help?

When it comes to learning about drones. Do we really learn? Discover and progress our hobby with UAV by simply watching Youtube videos. Well as a new pilot in 2015 I have to say (YES) ok OK ok You must be thinking what is this newbie pilot talking about? Youtube was the initial introduction to RC/UAV/Drones with a wealth of false and sponsored retrick which was in my personal experience entertaining. But for a poor few,  simple lack of investigation introduced them to some TOY products. I was…See More

"Wow more affordable you say Lee, before DIYD and other opensource autopilots just the flight controller was north of US$5000 There will be a point where you can't get cheaper without several components having to give in the quality department.…"

"@ Jerry Are you saying this has a snapdragon FC? As in the Flight board? That's interesting, I might have to follow your lead. ;-)"

"My Yi camera is OK - a fine $90 camera for action and waterproof use (with case). But it's still the worst quality camera I own.  The price of this is about the same as a P3S - which has a mature app and capabilities.  4K means…"

"Thanks guys for the comments, It does seem by using a sony sensor and a big effort in lenses give some indication that the quality of the build will not be less than cheap plastic. The overall quality of the camera is very good. I guess it like…"

Gary McCray commented on lee winterson's blog post Xiaomi MI Drone - The $456.00 4K Camera drone
"Hi Lee, Apparently not ready for prime time yet. The inclusion of a 4K camera at any price indicates they are attempting to play with the big boys. But if the real world performance isn't there, no amount of specs and hype will do them any…"

Xiaomi MI Drone - The $456.00 4K Camera drone

Until Then...To good to be true? Leading smart phone company Xiaomi to launch a 4k Camera Drone. When it comes to new drones and claims from companies that their latest start up will shake the market of UAV, always brings a little of suspicion. I have to say Xiaomi has a good track record and its latest offering of a 4K drone at a remarkable price $456.00 had me shaking with excitement. But like any serious hobbyist , I turned to the faithful Youtube for test and example footage.I was…See More
