Episode 4: Episode 4: Drones over Paris, The FAA harrassing a UAV enthusiast and his Youtube channel, DJI and 3D Robotics raising venture capital and UAviators.org

13 Mar , 2015  

In this episode of the podcast, I break down “drones over Paris” incidents with a timeline of the events. I explore the media frenzy over a letter that a UAV hobbyist received from the FAA where they equate his monetized YouTube videos as a commercial endeavor. I interview the aforementioned hobbyist Jayson Hanes to get a first-person account of what really happened.

I then discuss how DJI is becoming a billion dollar company, 3D Robotics raising venture capital and what these means for the hobby community and the industry.

Finally, I explore the Humanitarian UAV Network or UAviators.org, an organization that recruits UAV pilots and experts for the greater good.
