Stress testing drones in a high-tech wind vortex | Motherboard

curated by | May 10, 2016

“As drones are becoming more commonplace in cities, so are drone accidents. People are crashing their brand new toys and flying them places they shouldn’t be like crazy. Part of this is thanks to the complex wind environments in built-up areas, which can make drones go out of control.
