Geek Beat: New Rules for Making Money with Drones


New rules for commercial drone use led off this week’s “Geek Beat” segment on the Hawaii News Now “Sunrise” morning show. We also touched on the growing popularity of first-person view (FPV) drone racing, including a recent competition on Maui and the upcoming Drone Worlds championships taking place at Kualoa Ranch in October.
