AMA Drone Report 02.15.18: AMA Expo East, Skydio R1, TSB Canada Report

Also: DJI Knowledge Quiz, GoFly Competition, Drone ID Rules Coming, FAA Unenthusiastic About Prosecuting?

The Academy of Model Aeronautics will host the annual AMA Expo East at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, New Jersey February 23 - 25.

The three-day expo will provide new and seasoned hobbyists of all ages with hands-on opportunities to learn about building and flying model aircraft and drones. This includes flying demonstrations, FPV drone racing with the AMA flight simulator and more. AMA Expo East will also include Home School Day on Friday, February 23. During this day, home school students will have a chance to experience RC flight simulators, try model and drone flying, watch RC boat demos and more. There is a new flying camera on the market which its maker claims is a step toward the future of autonomous drones and enabling a new type of visual storytelling. Skydio, a California-based company, has announced the availability of the company's first product: R1, a fully autonomous flying camera. R1 was reportedly built from the ground up for autonomous flight and is powered by the Skydio Autonomy Engine, enabling it to see and understand the world around it so that it can fly safely at high speeds while avoiding obstacles, even in dense and challenging environments. The Transportation Board Canada has released its final report on a collision between a Beechcraft King Air A100 and an alleged UAV on October 12, 2017. The King Air was operating as IFR  flight to Québec/Jean-Lesage International Airport with 2 pilots and 6 passengers on board. On final approach, the flight crew reportedly observed a drone, about the size of a dinner plate, in front of the left wing. The pilot had no time to take evasive action. The impact was ‘unavoidable,’ and the drone disintegrated. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of the AMA Drone Report!!!
