The home built guys have been building drones for many years already, I first played with one about 10 years ago... The difference is the home built guys don't have a military budget, we make damn sure we don't crash them at random!

I'm more worried about the unmanned aerial speedbump that isn't talking to anyone or able to see and avoid other traffic.

Any UAV of substantial size has an A2A Radar mode and sense-and-avoid logic.

Substantial size being the key word, I'm not worried about those. They're usually talking with ATC too.

The issue is far from resolved. The FAA is being it's usual feet-dragging self about change.

Regardless, I'm not worried about the big ones.

Recent Midair Collision Between a C-130 and a UAV

Well, it finally happened. Something some pilots operating in Iraq and Afghanistan have told me they worry about more than enemy surface-to-air fire; a midair collision with a UAV.

That's why I vector the aircraft and not the UAS. I've had to slap the **** out of some controllers that think moving the UAS is a better option.. They're slow, they climb slow, and they are almost always in the way... I'll move a C-130 out of the way before I'd consider moving a UAS unless I had airspace to play with, which is hardly the case. Even if it meant the aircraft would be flying 10 miles out of the way. You can't put a price on safety when you're on the mic.

The future depicted by Hollywood is officially here—or at least on the way.

Chinese firm Ehang plans to begin testing a fully autonomous drone capable of carrying human passengers in Nevada, according to the state's Office of Economic Development.

The Ehang 184 debuted earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show. Capable of carrying up to 220 pounds worth of human cargo, the drone has a range of less than 2.2 miles. That's not especially useful today, but EHang has indicated that this first model is a step toward drones with a higher carrying capacity and a greater range.

The initial Ehang 184 features a 12.0-inch touchscreen display that will allow passengers to input their destination. Officials call them drone taxis, and while Ehang has said their model could be ready for sales as soon as this year, initial testing will be done in order to submit reports to the FAA. A host of regulatory hurdles exist between Ehang's testing in Nevada and any eventual sale of drone taxis to the public, however.

Ehang plans to locate a small number of employees in Nevada initially for its testing, but it hasn't said just where it will take up residence in the Silver State.

Well, that rules out the US market.

I've always predicted they'll have autonomous flying drones before they have autonomous cars. There are a lot fewer things at hit at 500 feet.
