    image.jpeg This made international news in the sense that it's in the latest Economist magazine. Not good for our hobby and measurements will be taken by governmental bodies.
    Next will be a 60 Minute episode on the dangers of drones and that will change the hobby as we know it.

    That's old news, it was found to be a plastic bag not a UAV and all of the new law threats were stopped...

    I know it's old news, but making the Economist publication is huge news. Meaning there will be measurements taken in the near future by countries.

    They've just banned plastic shopping bags from super markets in southern california to protect passenger jets from hitting them :oops: The airways have been saved
    California first U.S. state to ban plastic bags






    Ok... Sooo, I exaggerated it just a touch :)
