Hearings in the US Congress are usually quite mundane. Important, but mundane. Well, one such hearing was made little more exciting thanks to a Parrot Bebop Drone.
The drone was flown above attendees to a hearing of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee concerning… drones. The meeting was all about talking to those involved in the drone industry about the future of UAVs and how best to integrate them into the airspace safely.
To deliver a presentation on behalf of the drone industry, Colin Guinn, senior vice president of sales at 3D Robotics, utilised the new Parrot Bebop drone. He had to obtain special permission to be allowed to fly the drone, but as you’ll see in the video, despite remaining obedient to a strict flight path, certain members of the committee wanted more.
