Entrepreneurs need lots of data about their desired customers before they build a product. Chris Anderson, CEO of 3D Robotics and progenitor of the modern "do it yourself" (DIY) drone trend, understood this well: Before founding his drone company, Anderson went about figuring out exactly what the world wanted.
Anderson created diydrones.com, a…
I have some real concerns about this article. Although this article talks about commercial hijacking, I feel this could very well happen to me and other hobbyists. And what can DIY Drones help develop to reduce this probability?…Continue
