Monday, Kevin Price of K-State and I spoke to farmers at the Great Bend Kansas Farm show.  There was a lot of interest in the roll UAV's have in increasing the yield of crops.  We had a prototype AgEagle flying wing and Kevin displayed the K-State Zephyr II as well as a hex copter.

Following the event several farmers and agronomists kept us busy asking questions about the AgEagle UAS and the research K-State has done with UAV's and agronomy. 

A reporter from a Great Bend Kansas news paper wrote a nice article on the event.

Guys - please review the attache article.  It is an example of how ridiculous laws can kill our budding industry.  Have you contacted your elected officials to explain how the use of UAS systems can help farmers?  Don't wait until the laws are rolled out and then complain.  Go do something about it!

In Kansas we have contacted all our elected officials and have their support.  We need more states to guide the FAA rulings.

Those states that have a lot of agricultural production have a lot to loose if agricultural users are hampered in their use of UAV systems.  If elected officials understand the benefits at least if they have the opportunity to support their use.

Marc - I checked out WAZE because of your post and defiantly agree, that a model like this may be a potential solution to managing UAV's commercially.  Great idea!
