Study suggests we’re not as terrible at flying drones as you might think

The team examined 150 reported civil incidents involving drones between 2006 and 2016

Drones rightly attract a healthy amount of attention when they put people in danger, whether that be by flying too close to commercial airliners or stopping firefighting crews from tending to blazes.
