Good morning, this week was a little hectic as I was at the AUVSI Xponential conference in Denver, CO. I have spent lots of time walking the show floor, attending various break-out sessions and talking with people about the latest developments in the drone industry. The result was not much time to sleep and also not a lot of time to write. However, I do have a lot of news, photos, and videos that will come out over the next couple of days. So hopefully that will make up for it! Anyways, grab your coffee, jump in and see what you may have missed over the last few days. Btw – be sure to check out the short interview with Michael Perry and Brendan Schulman from DJI.
