While it was hardly an attack, it does serve to demonstrate how easily someone could build a weaponised quadcopter (eg, fit it with a ball-bearing bomb) and fly it right up to the leader of a G8 nation.Jemiba said:A good example to my opinion, how (private) drones are dealt with in the media is the report
about a " drone, that crashed to the ground, just about 2 meters from German chancellor Angela
Merkel during a pre-election party in Dresden. She wasn't hurt by that incident ..."
Launched by a big German broadcasting station, this report was copied by several other

Not surprisingly, since it's using the same database as the N-reg system. The Amazon drones are already in there, using some ex-PanAm registrations:But according to a report from Forbes, all those names and addresses will eventually be publicly available.
