    There's no general threat using Google Assistant with Go 4 app. DJI Drone could kill…

    Could you not just turn off your transmitter and let it just return to home on it's own? For myself I would never have any other apps running on the phone/display even though they say your phone can run several apps at the same time for every app you have running it cuts the clock cycles that...

    Why would it be wrong to have taken this photo?

    it sounds like Americans are getting more and more rules put on them every day soon you will have to apply to drive down certain roads as they are classed as critical infrastructure I doubt terrorists would bother to go to the place they are thinking of bombing and fly a drone before I think...

    Drone with back thrusters

    I think you have the wrong word anything operated remotely is a drone I think you were thinking of it would not be a quadcopter the word drone came from the military where most of their "drones" have wings and pusher props as they can stay in the air longer for the same amount of fuel.

    New tablet search; why so many issues with samsung?
