DroneRise – Govt wants to destroy drones, FAA is too strict, surfing dolphins and more…

Good morning, lots of news today about the U.S. Government wanting powers to destroy drones, Yuneec with their new Tyhpoon H Plus drone, a Congressional report that says the FAA is too strict and much more other news. We also have an amazing drone video of dolphins that are showing local surfers who really rule the waves. A must watch. Enjoy!

Today’s video

Today’s video is simply amazing. It was shot by Richard Melvill and shows dolphins surfing the waves of Umdloti Beach in Durban, South Africa. I can only imagine what a sight that must have been for the local surfers in the water. Although by the looks of the video, they seemed unfazed. Maybe this happens all the time?
