DroneRise – Drone license for the EU and Switzerland, Flyjacket, FLIR, and RadioPlane Seeker drone

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!

Today’s video

Today we have a video from Mustafa AL-Sumaidaie who flies his Inspire 1 in Iraq and over very low over crowds. You can see people ducking to avoid being hit by the drone. Interesting shot to say the least. Check it out!

If you have a drone film that you would like to show on DroneDJ, send us an email with a link to your video on YouTube or Vimeo and provide us some background info.
