Luke Runyon of Harvest Public Media came to Agribotix last week to do a story on the use of drones in agriculture and the FAA issues involved.  We took him out to our favorite local farm and had a grand time flying quads.  Fortunately the story was picked up by National Public Radio so it had a US-wide distribution (link to the story).  In addition to Agribotix, Luke interviewed Eric Frew of the University of Colorado Research and Engineering Center for Unmanned Vehicles and Rory Paul of Volt Aerial Robotics.   All-in-all I think it brought some good PR to the commercial drone space at a time when we've been getting a few black eyes from irresponsible hobbyist.

  • @mP1.  Yes, it is a bit jingoistic the name us yanks gave to the radio network.  But just to make it up to you, we did appear on ABC Radio Australia yesterday.  Here's a link to the story.

  • National ? Not my national radio.
