So, this past weekend a draft of the FAA’s proposals for handling drones leaked online, and given that drones are expected to be quite the large industry going forwards (changing everything from photojournalism to Amazon deliveries, if the cards fall right) it’s been getting a lot of attention.

We’ll walk for… some time, then there will be retiring to Ram if anyone wants to tag along. There’s no specific plan, which is good because, we won’t […]
