So now what are they going to do now to protect us from this menace in the sky ?????????????????????????????????????
The "millions" of drones that have been sold recently has to be added to all of the existing airworthy aircraft. In our club, I am guessing that we have at least a few hundred airworthy aircraft and perhaps 1-2 dozen multirotor aircraft. Multirotor sales are probably out-pacing the fixed wing sales in the model aircraft sector, but there are still a heck of a lot of unregistered fixed wing aircraft out there.
