Airborne-Unmanned 11.19.19: VSR700 1st Flt, DJI v Malaria, Drone Penalty

Also: Drone Industry Workshop, Drones Monitor Scottish Seas, Public Safety UAS Summit, 50-Mile Drone Corridor

The prototype of Airbus Helicopters’ VSR700 unmanned aerial system has performed its first flight at a drone test center in the south of France.

The VSR700 performed several take-offs and landings on Friday 8th of November with the longest flight lasting around 10 minutes. The VSR700 was tethered with 100-foot cables to fully secure the flight test zone. The subsequent phases of the flight test program will now evolve towards free flight, and then progressively open the flight envelope. DJI and a team of entomologists in the field of malaria elimination are working together to develop a revolutionary technique to fight the disease. By combining the research team’s expertise and DJI’s drone technology, a new way to fight the potentially deadly disease has been created. For the first time, there is a real chance to make a breakthrough in malaria elimination with the help of spray drones. A Georgia man who was illegally operating a UAS to drop contraband into Autry State Prison was sentenced to 48 months in prison for his crime. Eric Lee Brown, 35, of Lithonia, Georgia pleaded guilty to one count of operating an aircraft eligible for registration knowing that the aircraft is not registered to facilitate a controlled substance offense before U.S. District Court Judge Louis Sands. The defendant was sentenced to 48 months in prison, followed by 3 years supervised release. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne-Unmanned!!!
