Not sure… I a pretty confident that gatwick drone pilot knew exactly what he did… But if DJI could create a small ADS-In module, may be the price of ADSB in receiver will drop.
Yes but this is great PR.
99% of the population, or the media, have no clue what this is, other than that it sounds a great idea.
And airliners do all emit ADS-B OUT, so if some complete twat flew it near an airport approach path, or in CAS and got near something, at least he would get a warning.
Shouldn’t they have ADS-B out, rather?
