The last few weeks have not been very positive for drone pilots with the Gatwick and Heathrow events. Coventry even said they would bad drones entirely shortly after (which has been backtracked somewhat which is positive ) we have been having some interesting chats over on the dronetrest discord chat server
But now it’s good to see some of the big guys stepping in with DJI urging people to stop panicking as the two supposed drone incidents have not even been confirmed as being caused by drones yet.
You can read a nice summary article here:
Lets hope that the people in charge do realise that basically all of us drone pilots (professional/hobbyists) don’t want to see ether end of this industry.
And at the end of the day, if someone wanted to cause distruption with a drone, increasing the exclusion zone of an airport, or banning drones all together in an area is not going to make any difference to people who have alterior plans.
