AMA Drone Report 09.05.19: Regs Eased, Drone Fishing?, Yuneec Mantis G

The FAA is working with other federal agencies to minimize the impact of flight restrictions on drone operators flying near select federal facilities.

The agency is working with the DoD to establish intermittent restrictions on drone flights within the lateral boundaries of select federal facilities during specified times. Currently, drone operators are prohibited from flying at these locations at all times. The FAA is working to ensure that these restrictions are narrowly tailored and remain in effect only when necessary. A video has surfaced in Australia of a man who appears to be being carried under a large, homemade drone over Upper Coliban Reservoir in central Victoria, fishing pole in hand. He drops the bait in the water, catches a fish, and flies back to shore. The Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) is investigating the video to see if any of the country's rules were violated by the flight. CASA spokesman Peter Gibson said regardless, the flight was genuinely unsafe. "This is a first for Australia, to have a large homemade drone being used to lift someone off the ground," he said. "It's really not a sensible thing to do in any way, shape or form; there's lots of things that could have gone wrong, someone could have been seriously injured." Yuneec has introduced the new Mantis G drone, designed to make it easier to create photos and videos from a whole new perspective. The new integrated gimbal produces video in full HD and 4K resolutions, as well as hi-rez still photos. Over 30 minutes of flying time, are coupled with the Mantis G’s PX4 flight controller to offer enhanced stability. Yuneec has set a retail price for the Mantis G at $699.
