I tryed to post before but did not go through and it seemed i was not logged in and hope link is still good. With all the bad its good to see some good.

With much bad news and hate for them it is nice to see that a school in phoenix is teaching students to fly drones.

sorry but not even the wording i want,  all was saying that its good to see some good instead of bad news about drones. Schools teaching is a plus.

Do wonder how much hands on joystick flying will be done in future?  

Back in 2013, a X47-B drone landed by itself on aircraft carrier.  Then was launced from aircrafter for what was supposed to be another carrier landing.  The drone self detected a navigation computer anomaly, and diverted to airstrip to land.  In 2015, the X47-B completed a mid-air refueling.

I was fortunate to attend this course a few years ago because it was local and it was free. NSW Drone Course

After online teaching and exams we went out and put it into practice what we had learned for a few days using the supplied Phantoms. There were 12 students per course.

The accreditation was counted towards a CASA commercial licence so it saved me a small fortune.
It's a pity there are not more such courses available as a lot of beginner and safety  problems would be alleviated.

i bet that's why kids are learning more coding and drone use too.. probably  push for military and space stuff.  nasa has their remote operations stuff and their drones on other planets and always testing new things looking for new talent (not just nasa but other space agencies too!) and the military loves new technology and drones and military go together almost as well as guns and the military many many uses for drones without even mentioning their lethal use.  like having an eye on the battlefield before stepping foot into it, having a watchful eye while you kit up for shut eye having another vantage point and locating the enemy in the fog of battle,

now its just my theory which at-least makes sense.. probably some connection

If they were programming drones to fly from point A to B or a specified route, I could see it helping students with their futures.  Not so sure about how hands-on Joystick time is helping them.  Maybe as a career in military flying small reconnaissance drones.

When it comes to NASA, drones on planets or outer space, the pilot would need to be within say 5,000 miles of drones.  Otherwise transmission delays would make human control an issue.  Reason military has LEO Satellites vs. public's internet satellites setting 22,500 miles up.

Really believe students would be better served learning how to program & debug, writing man pages & mgmt reports, and filing expense reports & IRS 1040s...

A Drone college could be a future necessity...... I wonder what plans the IAA have in the pipeline!

18 again lol that was a lifetime ago
How are you getting on with the Pocket! Miche got one and loves it, the slowmo is fabulous

Love the quality of both the product and footage, will get plenty of time to use over the holidays.

I have tried some Motionlapse and Timelapse and was really impressed with results.

Awesome! thanks for sharing.  I just moved to Phoenix a couple of weeks ago from Texas.  I am glad to know that there is some tolerance here for drone flying

yea its true... real life skills arent being taught in schools anymore.
