Over 150 teams throughout the world are coming together on one day to educate the public about the positive ways in which “drones” are used to better society in many beneficial ways, with a mantra of: “Drones are Good!” Las Vegas has been chosen as the host city for the worldwide lead event on the first annual International Drone Day, but there will be events on every continent. Drones, also referred to as multirotors, quadcopters, flying robots, flying cameras, and UAVs, are not used by the drone community to harm or spy on people. Instead they are used in search and rescue, law enforcement, fire fighting, environmental research, conservation and preservation, agriculture, sports, photography, cinematography, just to name a few. The events will highlight these uses of unmanned drone aircraft.
