Drones are flying, unmanned robots. Some are as small as a bird, while others are the size of a large plane. These amazing, technologically advanced and intelligent machines are used in many commercial applications, including search and rescue, bridge and building inspections, real estate, agriculture, law enforcement, marketing, military operations, and scientific research, as well as for entertainment. Ritter will present an overview of the development of drones and introduce a few of these remarkable machines. He will also discuss how to buy a drone for specific needs, and the basic laws governing drone ownership and operation in U.S. airspace. You can also learn what it takes to build your own drone.
