This video, by MotherboardTV, was posted on YouTube in early December, but, at just over 50,000 views, it hasn’t yet reached the audience it deserves.

Not knowing much about drones to begin with, the MotherboardTV team started out by talking with P.W. Singer, author of “Wired for War”. From there, they flew to Amman, Jordan, to attend a military trade show, where they met Chris Barter, Scout Program Manager at Datron. Accepting his invitation to vists the Datron campus in San Diego, they got an opportunity to fly the Scout for themselves. (The Scout is produced by Canadian firm Aeryon Labs and marketed by Datron.)

While in Southern California, they also stopped by 3D Robotics for a chat with Chris Anderson and a couple of their engineers, filling out the picture with the DIY perspective.

All in all, it’s very well done. You may find yourself subscribing to MotherboardTV’s YouTube channel.
