In the July-August issue of RotorDrone magazine, Patrick Sherman of the Roswell Flight Test Crew describes a trip earlier this year to Muscat, the capital city of Oman on the Arabian Peninsula.
Speaking at the first-ever drone conference held in the desert kingdom, Sherman had the opportunity to see how this new technology is being received half a world away.
He writes: "Yet, for all of the differences this trip to the other side of the planet revealed, it brought home to me that even more is the same: drone people like to talk about drones; there is an understanding that this technology is bringing something fundamentally new and different into the world; and, there is always tension between its limitless potential and concerns about safety, security and privacy."

We were in the studio earlier this week, working on our unboxing and setup video about the Vusion House Racer from Hobbico. Watch for that to drop on our YouTube channel very soon... But in the meantime, check out the new lighting set up put together by the hard-working Roswell Flight Test Crew video team. To improve the lighting on the products we review, they re-configured our lighting set up: adding one big bank of lights over the camera, as you can see in these photos. Pretty cool!
