More BBC Backlash!

More backlash for the egregious BBC drone report recently done. The outcry has been enormous and drone industry insiders have rallied to refute and destroy the credibility of the outrageous and extremely inaccurate report. Some of the claims made are laughable, such as Racing drones being operated from hundreds of miles away and carrying munitions……a Racing drone has virtually no carrying capacity, runs for 3-6 minutes and has a control range of just a few hundred meters. It’s “Reefer Madness” all over again, but with drones.

So, what’s the purpose of all this misinformation? Why cause a panic among the population? Could it have anything to do with money and control? An attempt to corner an emerging market that will be worth billions. If you control the airspace, write the rules….you decide who gets the money in what will be a “Pay 2 Play” market. It has nothing to do with safety or vibrant marketplaces…..
