    I'm not sure if this is going to be good or bad. It seems lately that the "drone" floodgates are opening. Good thing we only fly UAVs... :D

    I love Dianne Feinstein's thoughts.
    She supports the NSA spying but is troubled by all the drones....

    ... So it's ok for the government to spy, but she is troubled when we have a UAV with a camera.

    not a bad segment.. I dislike the term "drone" as well because when people hear it, they automatically associate it with something being used to destroy something or spy. But poor Colin, though lol..had to have been taped before the DJI/Colin fallout.

    I was amazed to see Colin there flying a P2V. I'd think that either Colin or DJI would take exception to that.

    And Diane Feinstein. It's okay for the NSA to listen to our phone conversations, but "drones" scare her. I really think that in many situations like this, the bias is based on whose back she's scratching and who's scratching her back. Just another bureaucratic talking head with her own agenda... (yawn)

    I'm sure those releases (Quinn) took place months ago and can anyone really be surprised by Feinstein? Big government good.

    Putting the whole law suit aside regarding DJI and Colin. He is so interesting to watch and his energy is so positive and infectious. I loved watching him in this segment. It's hard to do a piece like this and not piss someone off. I felt like it was pretty balanced all in all.

    Best part of the whole segment was the shot through the trees and the nice stick work to make that look easy.

    Yeah... I felt the same way. One of the reasons I bought this thing is directly linked to Colin's energy and positive attitude towards the industry in general. That came across very strongly in this segment... though I still sat with my jaw on my chest watching him fly the P2V. It's the last thing I expected.

    I've sometimes felt that he was nothing but a metrosexual shill for DJI. But watching him fly that P2V through a small gap in that tree in both directions kind of endeared him to me as a pilot. I think I'm starting to miss him a bit...

    I was a bit surprised and delighted to see Colin. He speaks well for the UAV market. I could have lived without Feinstein.

    Feinstein is a miserable old ****. Forgive my language. She's the same idiot who wants to ban guns. If it were up to her everything fun would be banned and any young whipper snappers (anyone under 60) would be thrown in jail.
