Airborne 07.20.17: ForeFlight Scout, Airbus SAGITTA UAV, Privatization Fight

Also: NASA P2006T, Robert Sumwalt, First FL Legacy 500, Tuskegee Airmen, New RAF Trainer, VFA-115

ForeFlight has announced the availability of Scout, a portable, dual-band ADS-B receiver that delivers inflight weather and traffic information to the ForeFlight Mobile app in a small form-factor, retailing at $199 USD. “We are excited to bring Scout to market in collaboration with uAvionix,” said Tyson Weihs, ForeFlight co-founder and CEO.

AMA Drone Report 07.20.17: FAST Drones, GeoFencing, Certified Drone Photographer

Also: SureFly Helicopter Concept, 'Design a Drone', Raleigh v Drones, Aero-TV: AMA's David Mathewson

The Drone Racing League recently tested the fastest racing drone, and set the Guinness World Records title for the Fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter. Hand-built by DRL's Director of Product, Ryan Gury, and DRL's team of expert drone engineers, the drones fly at unprecedented high speeds. The fastest racing drone, the DRL RacerX, demonstrated a reported top speed of 179.6 miles per hour... and weighs only 800 grams. Hackers are making it easy for DJI drone operators to get around the geofencing function included in the firmware of DJI drones, and the company is taking steps to thwart the practice. Such firmware patches are being made available at various locations on the Internet. The dronemaker is reportedly "very concerned" about legal action, and does not want

Aero-News At AirVenture Update: ANN Started Early

It May Several Days Yet Until EAA AirVenture Officially Opens Its Gates, But ANN Has Been In Place All Week!

At ANN we have something we call our Aero-Community, and it’s filled with incredible people and organizations that populate our Airborne Partnership Initiative. This initiative plays an important role in the creation of the video programming seen daily on our Airborne Unlimited webcast. We work with our Aero-Community to build a strong relationship with all facets of aviation and aerospace. All of this comes together in its most profound way every year at EAA AirVenture and, at AirVenture 2017, our joining of common interests has already started. The vanguard of the ANN crew is now on property at Oshkosh setting up our press headquarters and all the production equipment necessary to bring you the most complete coverage of AirVenture that’s available.

Deadwood SD Considers Drone 'No-Fly' Zone Over Historic Downtown

But Drone Enthusiasts Say Only FAA Can Make Such A Designation

The Deadwood (SD) city commission earlier this month gave initial approval to a drone ordinance that would completely ban drone flights over the historic downtown area, and includes other restrictions such as no flights over schools, hospitals, public utilities and other buildings. The ordinance would also preclude flights over people not involved with the operation of the drone, over vehicular traffic, or property not owned by the drone operator without the consent of the property owner.
