Is there any good news about drones? This must-read article reveals just how dangerous these things outside of war zones. The Post reports that some of the major issues include:
- A limited ability to detect and avoid trouble.
- Pilot error.
- Persistent mechanical defects.
- Unreliable communications links.
But don’t worry, Frank Pace of General Atomics (the leading drone manufacturer) assures us that: ““We’ve never reported a loss of life,” he said, “so we’re doing pretty good.” Cause when a death-dealing weapons manufacturer assures me his product is safe, I am always convinced.
