AMA Drone Report 02.27.17: DJI Rumors, UAV Sighting Report, Another City Ban

Also: Hover Camera Passport, Utah Drone Festival, An Early Report on AMA Expo East

Following years of egregious county misbehavior, the owner of Skydive Myrtle Beach is suing members of the Horry County Council for alleged violations of his constitutional rights under the 14th Amendment.

Holly also has not been charged with violating any local ordinances, nor paid any affiliated fines or penalties. RUN... do not walk... to Lakeland this April. In what may be the largest gathering of P-51 Mustangs in a decade or more ... on Wednesday, April 5th
