"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…"

David Drysdale commented on Steven Hinz's blog post Walmart Plans To Use Drones to Track Inventory at Distribution Centers

"@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…"

David Drysdale commented on Chris Anderson's blog post 3DR, Yuneec and DJI launch UAS notification system with Airmap
"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…"

David Drysdale commented on Chris Anderson's blog post "A 2kg drone is likely to cause injury to a human passenger once every 187 million years of operation"
"@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…"

"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…"

David Drysdale commented on Olivier's blog post Some High-End Police Drones Can Be Hacked Using $40 Kits
"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."

David Drysdale commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post A new chapter in ArduPilot development
"@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…"

David Drysdale commented on Andrew Tridgell's blog post A new chapter in ArduPilot development

David Drysdale commented on matucha123's blog post Dangerous close-up with aircraft braking rules
"@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…"

David Drysdale commented on matucha123's blog post Dangerous close-up with aircraft braking rules
"@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…"

David Drysdale commented on matucha123's blog post Dangerous close-up with aircraft braking rules
