If you are a drone owner (or fly any RC aircraft) or if you intend to purchase one, you MUST watch this podcast. The FAA has proposed new rules which will ground all current drones and make it nearly impossible to capture interesting photos or videos with our drones. The FAA is taking public comments up until March 2nd, so it is very important to register your concern!!
In recent news, Yuneec has launched a 30x optical zoom drone, the E30Z. Sony's image sensor business has been impacted by the coronavirus outbreak which has disrupted their supply chain. Sigma indicates it is starting over with its development of a full-frame Foveon-based camera which was first announced back in 2018. Fujifilm will discontinue its Fujicolor film packs by the end of March.
Please check out and register your concerns about the new FAA proposed rules for UAS (drones and RC unmanned aircraft) - but you must do so before March 2nd! If these rules go into effect, you might as well throw your drone away and that will be the end of the hobby!
