The hobby drone industry just got a bit shook up... The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. has ruled that the FAA violated the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 when it required the registration of model aircraft, including drones, that are flown strictly for recreational purposes, and has vacated the Registration Rule for those aircraft. Maryland attorney John Taylor challenged the registration requirement based on Section 336, saying that the rule was unlawful as applied to model aircraft. The last two weeks of April have seen the Lancair Uvalde hangar complex bustling with activity. All hands have been hard at work unloading trucks, building storage racks and stowing a variety of molds, tools and fixtures essential for Lancair's return to kit manufacturing. In the w

Ya had to see it to believe it... An ingenious Latvian UAS operation has pulled off an exercise in which a skydiver used one of their massive 28 rotor multi-copters to make an eye-popping skydive. On May 12, a 28-propeller drone built by Aerones lifted skydiver, Ingus Augstkalns, to a height of nearly 1100 feet, from where he accomplished the planned jump. The company, Aerones, has already demonstrated a number of dramatic heavy lift missions and solutions. Janis Putrams, Aerones' chief engineer, and the drone pilot on this mission, added, "Already in the near future, our technology will save human lives, will help to fight fires and carry out other challenging and significant work.
