A Minnesota man is facing two felony charges for shooting down a drone. The drone pilot flew it over Butterfield Foods, a chicken farm, to prove that chickens were being slaughtered because of the #COVID19 pandemic.

One remote drone pilot decided to fly his drone dangerously close to the @BlueAngels in spite of a NOTAM and is now in trouble with the @FAANews, the U.S. Navy, and local authorities. https://www.dpreview.com/news/1172190525/swift-action-from-faa-us-navy-follows-detroit-blue-angels-drone-incident.amp

And yet the vast majority of Western drone firms are software only. @H_Robotics we make an end-to-end system that lets firms digitize remote assets on demand - in weather and by using a smartphone. https://www.credit-suisse.com/microsites/conferences/supertrends/en.html @pmarca

We agree w @ABIresearch who write “Amassing a Record US$46B In 2019 Funding, the Robotics Industry is resillient to the Coronavirus Storm “Despite not having commercialized their technology, autonomous vehicle firms have continued to amass enormous corporate & vc funding”.

How is it that a drone this big, 26k, has no tracker on it? Latvia’s skies now closed to long distance flights because a military-grade drone is “uncontrolled and lost” and nobody knows where it has gone. We use trackers in all our @HiSightSUAV drones!

Latvian drone wrests control from human overlords and shuts down entire nation's skies
