Tonight (Sunday) we'll do our regular podcast, which everyone here is welcome to participate in by listening to the chat live above and commenting and asking questions via the DIY Drones chat function. We'll be starting at a half hour early, at 8:30 PM PST, so I can catch a redeye to Boston tonight ;-)
This week we'll by joined by Patrick Egan from RCAPA, the Remote Control Aerial Photography Association, talking about UAV regulations and the FAA process to integrate UAVs into the national airspace, something he's part of.
Here's a little more on Patrick that he provided us:
"I currently hold the title of director for the RCAPA, airspace advocacy committee member at AUVSI(Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International), and membership on the ICC (International Coordination Council) which inputs to the EUROCAE wg-73. I have also worked within the framework of the standards groups; ASTM F-38 and RTCA SC-203 (lightly regulated sub-group), and was a full member of the FAA's Small Unmanned Aircraft System Aviation Rulemaking Committee (FAA Order 1110.150)"
Other themes in the podcast will include:
