    Get Ready For 1 Million More Drones in the Air After Christmas!!

    Our airspace is about to get a lot more crowded!

    "Northland Capital analyst Gus Richard said he expects up to 1 million drones will be bought as Christmas gifts this year, with about 80% likely to have a camera attached."

    Make sure the drone you are flying is, indeed, yours! When your drone "stops being responsive" or " flies away" or "takes on a mind of its own", make sure that it is your drone you are trying to control, and not someone else's! It's already happened to a few of us! Drone collisions with each other are going to be far more likely, than drones hitting real aircraft, especially when flying using only FPV, and out of VLOS! :eek:

    Fly safe and "watch out for the other guy/drone!":cool:
