Airborne-Unmanned 07.25.17: Airspace Auto-Authorization, Bogus UAV Hit, CA Regs

Also: “Drone Billboard”, Eagle v Drone, Self-Driving Cars, Drone Locates Lost Man, Airborne-Unmanned-Help Wanted

Greatly anticipated, it appears that this fall, some 50 airports will begin providing Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC), which will give UAS operators the ability to “apply for instant, digital approval to fly in U.S. controlled airspace using the same applications they use for flight planning and in-flight situational awareness.” Currently, FAA authorization is required for flights in controlled airspace, at certain times of day, or near sensitive locations. Authorization requests are subject to long waiting periods and labor-intensive manual approvals, which can add more time to, or entirely halt, the process of commercial UAS operations. No surprise here, folks! When a student pilot and instructor approaching Parafield airport near Adela

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
