Big news: today the FAA granted Section 333 commercial use authorization for two 3DR vehicles, the IRIS+ and the Spektre (shown above), for use by our customers BNSF and Build Imagery.
There have been several UAVs that use Pixhawk that have been approved before, including the Event 38 and the Falcon Unmanned fixed-wing platforms. But these are the first multicopters, and the first ones made by 3DR.
And at the core of it all is the APM software stack created by this community. Go team!
Update: BNSF/Spektre approval is here.
