Drones Crash in PA playgrounds–and 400 other places!

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.
