Good morning, here are yesterday’s headlines with news from the EU and Switzerland about a new law that is in the works that would require hobbyist and professional drone pilots to get a license to fly. Furthermore, we have the FlyJacket that allows you to fly your drone with body movements and two press releases from FLIR Systems and RadioPlane with their new Seeker drone. Grab a coffee and jump in!
