Published on Oct 3, 2018

"With hundreds of thousands of personal UAVs currently in public hands, the question of will a serious drone strike on an aircraft occur, is no longer a matter of if, but when, in the minds of many experts. While tests on bird strikes have been conducted for decades, what kind of damage a drone would cause was still virtually unknown…until now.

Researchers at the University of Dayton research institute are no strangers to airframe impact testing, and they recently partnered with Sinclair College National UAS Training and Certification Center to determine what could happen to a general aviation aircraft if it hit a recreational drone in mid air."

You guys already know this, but you can never stress enough the act of flying safe!

A very good reason to obey local drone law/rules. Stay clear of Airports and Aircraft.

My hope is this video (previously posted here) will serve only one purpose.   To make drone pilots aware of what could happen if their drone intersects with an airplane.
My concern is this video will be used by our Government and Prada Press to scare public into demanding action.   Action our Government will more than gladly do, because it means more authority, and requires more resources (as in scope, size, staff, & funding).

This is a good video, and I concure we should keep our altitude below 400ft AGL. Small planes have a minimum of 500ft AGL.   There are many that say there isn't  a law for altitude maximums for UAS drones . Regardless if this is True or False, common sense and the future of our hobby is at stake.

The max is 400 feet
