PHASA-35, a 115-foot wingspan solar-electric aircraft, has successfully completed its maiden flight. PHASA-35 has been designed, built and now flown in less than two years.

A drone capable of carrying a person and performing aerobatics has been built and flown by Drone Champions AG as a way to promote its Drone Champions League video game. The DCL has released a video of the drone flying in Croatia. While the aircraft is designed to carry a person, that person is not the pilot. The aircraft is intended to be flown from the ground. The so-called "Big Drone" is built around an all-carbon aerodynamically-faired frame with six arms supporting two coaxial rotors for a total of 12 rotors. After more than a year in the making, the challenge to a drone ordinance passed in Genesee County, Michigan has resulted in what is being described as "a huge win" for drone operators. Writing on the UAV Legal News and Discussion Facebook page, Ryan J. Latourette, Director of Regulatory Affairs at Great Lakes Dron
