Re: Drones?

Hi Thomas!  Criticisms, fears and risks are always there with any revolutionary change. I think same questions would be there when aeroplanes and cars would have being discussed. But those risky tech proved a great success. Excited to see safe commercial drones in action.

Regarding your question on drone related fatality, no idea in US; but on the other side of world there are number of casualties every day from US military drones.

Anyone want to make any predictions about when the first drone-related fatality will be in the US?
