So, I'm just peeking into G+ here afte rignoring it for a while. I see the redesign... has the ability to 'view posts in my circles' gone away? I can see my Friends circle in my profile, but how do I just view posts from them?

Couple things I follow on here but that's about it. Mostly dead. Competitive market and poorly designed.

I'm really bothered that the photo here is "A typical hobby camera drone".  That drone is nothing of the sort.  The drone you are picturing there is a short range racer.  It rarely flys more than a few hundred feet from it's pilot, and is designed for racing and acrobatics.

The drones that are the problems are those built by the large commercial entities, like DJI.  Phantoms and Inspires are a rich kids toy, that have one purpose and one purpose only.  Fly over a long distance and take photos.  What you've pictured is not one of those, and frankly, the camera drone operators are making it extremely hard on the builders, such as myself, who take sharing the skies seriously, and would NEVER interfere with a support / rescue / fire operation.

Disclosure - I am the chairman of the US Drone Racing Association, and one of our missions is to educate the public.  Not all drones and drone pilots are the same.

i'm (obviously) well on board the charitable giving train, but i also thing that a perfectly chosen object is still a lovely thing, even if all i did was web search til i found it.

Oh, "Lucy." I get that Besson was swinging for the fences, and I give him points for that, but the result is just a mess. Not Johansson's fault, she did great work with lousy material.
