"I would get asked all the time to film stuff for clubs and sports I am a member of. I tell them all now drones are not a risk at all. Driving to a baseball game is way more dangerous. But if something ever happened I could make international news so…"
"@Joe As a skeptics and tiny thinker in my defence that is the best policy until sufficient evidence is presented. Otherwise you have to believe everything on the internet. You will notice skeptics change their opinion when the evidence is sufficient…"
"@John Well put their are lots of things that will take out a plain the real question are what are the odds a drone and plane will occupy the same space at the same time. It has been poste on diy drones before but the number is around 1 in 35 million…"
"Very nice to se and a good step forward. I will be very interested to se if flight towers use it as the risk to airplanes from drones is so small as to be almost not statistically significant. But a much better solution than a drone registry."
"@John I don't think their have been little to no RC fill size collision because rc pilots are good pilots. Good pilots may take the states from 1 in 187 million to 1 in 120 million or something like that .But I have always suspected and data is…"
"Not the fist people to point out the odds of drone aircraft cushion as so unlikely as to be not an issue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wJ3SblqOFA
I am very interested with this aspect of the drone community and public. It is a case study in…"
"Even more shocking with extensive research I have determined you can break into some fire trucks and police cars. Apparently the locks are easy to break and sometimes aren't even engaged. Everyone feel free to panic now."
"@Andrew Wow that is a lot of people didn't know there were so many. So was this a downsizing by 3dr or are they going in another direction for the software they will use for their autopilots?
I have no concern in the long run the organisations new…"
"I hope this isn't a question that is well known. But were some of the APM developer employed full time by 3dr or do they have other jobs and just work on APM part time and got small amount from 3dr. I hope it was just part time work because loosing…"
"@Jeff Heinen I do agree with you we need and already have good regulations. It also is nice to see the perspective of someone who flies like yourself. I agree with you 100% right up the mandatory training part. Not because I am against people…"
"@Jeff Heinen, Thanks for the reply. Birds moving out of the way never occurred to me but 10,000 bird strikes is a lot that didn't get out of the way. Last time I looked drone strikes were 1 in the last 10 years. I would also think 15 pound drones…"
"@Jeff Heinen Do you worry about colliding with drones more the birds? I am always surprised to see pilots worried about drone collision when there are something like 10,000 bid collisions a year in US/Canada per one causality or something around…"
