Last quote about Drones

My recommendation is to stop wasting your time trying to explain something that is as simple as an asset class that is priced for perfection at some points realizes that the world is not a perfect place. A president can certainly fly a drone whenever and wherever he wants, but he is never bigger than the business cycle and over time has little influence over investment returns as well.

All quotes about Drones

Guillermo Barros Schelotto

I'm not looking to hide anything with closed training sessions, I do it so we can have a little more intimacy and when the press is there you have to be more careful with your football language. All the same the drone was going around the Bombonera and we were training in Casa Amarilla, I don't think it was spying on us!

Rashid Abdi

The concern in Washington has been mounting for some time now. The Trump administration is simply reiterating what has been policy, with slight variations. U.S. special forces are already on the ground. Drone attacks have been scaled up.

Doug Brimeyer

Anything we can do to afford those animals an edge to help them survive is pretty critical.

Doug Brimeyer

It's a crucial time of year for those animals and they don't need to be burning up additional energy stores unnecessarily.

Chris Colligan

The concern is if it is found on those feedgrounds, it could be exacerbated by the elk concentrated in those areas. It's slowly creeping toward our fed elk populations.

Ben Marcus

This round is all about finding a set of partners to help us globalize.

John Dodero - United Parcel Service

We see this as an exploration into this new technology. We have no idea how all that will play out until we find out how to integrate them into the business.

Junyang Woon - Infinium

We are focused on indoor applications (for) very practical purposes because for outdoor applications, we have to deal with regulations. We have to deal with issues like privacy as well (but) if you fly drones indoors, you do away with all these issues. We are looking into fully replacing the manpower needed to do stocktaking, Let's say warehouse workers leave work, you press a button and the drone will do the stocktaking. When the workers come back in the morning, all the stock would be taken before they actually start work.

Gretchen West

In the drone industry, it seems counter intuitive, but we actually want regulation. And not having regulations is putting a halt to the growth of this industry.

Ren Tuanjie

In order to celebrate the completion of our family tree, we decided to have a get-together and photo session. The oldest was 94, and the youngest was 4 years old.

Gretchen West

There aren't a lot for the drone industry to begin with. And I can't imagine they'd do anything from a manned aviation perspective to jeopardize the safety of the airspace.

Gregory McNeal

If regulations for unmanned aircraft are held up or are stripped away, there's actually no way for drones to access the airspace.

Jon Hagranes

Since the commercial drone rules went into effect last summer, our business has skyrocketed. The quarter after the rules were out was three times bigger than our previous quarter.

Dave Bowen

Measure's business has definitely grown since Part 107 took effect. The number of cell tower drone inspections has at least tripled.

Gregory McNeal

We're investing millions of dollars in this space. And every day that there is a delay is a day that we are farther from being able to really watch our business grow.

Mike Lissone - Eurocontrol

The biggest challenge we're facing is: on the one hand we've a very conservative aviation community, where we take quite long years to make changes because we want to keep everything very safe; and now we've a very innovative industry coming up who doesn't want to wait five to seven years, it wants to implement things now.

Koen Vrints

The moment you take a course you get a lot of information on the airspace. We get plans where we can see visually where locations are, where control zone from an airport is, where helicopter training area is and how we have to look at it on the plan.

Jürgen Verstaen

So, there's a link between our software and the drone that informs him: watch out, the virtual wall is here, you cannot continue.

Jürgen Verstaen

We know we're standing near an airport. And if you look at the system indeed, it tells me on the spot 'you cannot fly here,' because… I don't know yet why. I just click a bit further and it will tell me in detail why I'm not allowed to fly here.

Falah Hammad Hindi

The weapon of choice is the drone. The snipers are highly effective. They are foreign fighters, the most committed.

Keren Elazari

Security decisions you make every day make a difference. A motivated attacker can get past any barrier. It's worse than the flu. It's not about secrets. It's about the technologies that power our way of life. Our future might have our toaster attacking the neighbor's drone, or his car.

Tristan Randall - Autodesk

The only other way to capture data at this level would be with a full size aircraft.

Soon-Jo Chung

Whenever I see bats make sharp turns and perform upside down, perching with such elegant wing movements and deformations, I get mesmerized.

Trip Chowdhry - Global Equities Research

We are at the tail end of the social media boom. Novelty is giving way to fatigue. Fundamental investors should avoid the IPO. Snapchat is a total junk, hyper-inflated. Durability is absent. All the junk IPOs I mentioned had their uniqueness too. Remember Groupon - group buying; Zynga - social gaming; GoPro - action photography and a media company and drone company. These are all instruments of blowing hot air into a company before a collapse.

Nasser Mohammed Nasser

Who do we talk to? America? Where is America? They would kill two or three from al-Qaida on one hand and 10 or 15 civilians on the other hand. Where is this al-Qaida they claim to be killing? ... There are many other incidents like ours due to drones.

Rafi Yoeli - Urban Aeronautics

Just imagine a dirty bomb in a city and a chemical substance or something else and this vehicle can come in robotically, remotely piloted, come in to the street and decontaminate an area.

Tal Inbar

It could revolutionize several aspects of warfare, including the medical evacuation of soldiers on the battlefield.

Kyle Landry - Lux Research

"There's a bit of a fear factor here,". "The high volume of drones, plus regulations that can't quite keep pace, equals a need for personal counter-drone technology.".

Kyle Landry - Lux Research

There's a bit of a fear factor here. The high volume of drones, plus regulations that can't quite keep pace, equals a need for personal counter-drone technology.

Priti Patel

The UK is at the forefront of investing in cutting-edge technology to tackle the global challenges of today such as disease pandemics, medical emergencies and disaster responses. This innovative, modern approach ensures we are achieving the best results for the world's poorest people and delivering value for money for British taxpayers.

Aaron L. Connelly

The Chinese have regularly tested new U.S. administrations when it comes to surveillance; it happened in 2001 and 2009. The data gleaned from this surveillance makes it easier for the U.S. navy to detect Chinese submarines and that's been one of Beijing's regular gripes about U.S. sea power in the area.

Aaron L. Connelly

That would have been a very oblique way to make that point as nothing about the drone had anything to do with Taiwan, so I suspect its primarily about surveillance activities. Previous harassment of U.S. navy ships occurred much closer to the Chinese mainland but this incident took place as about 600 kilometers away, and it was even outside the Chinese nine-dash line, which Beijing has used to claim much of the South China Sea.

Hua Chunying

There is a bit of over-reading, or a bit thinking about it too much: 'was it a misjudgement or orders from higher up'? But if you read the answer from the defence ministry spokesman, the facts are really simple and clear.

Peter Cook

This incident was inconsistent with both international law and standards of professionalism for conduct between navies at sea. The US has addressed those facts with the Chinese through the appropriate diplomatic and military channels, and have called on Chinese authorities to comply with their obligations under international law and to refrain from further efforts to impede lawful US activities.

Gregory Poling

For a lot of folks in the Pentagon, this over-stepped that line between legal contestation and a military threat.

Xiong Zhiyong

China wants to send a message to the U.S. side about how serious the consequences can be if sensitive issues in China-U.S. relations are handled unilaterally and indiscreetly. The return of the seized drone shows that China hopes the U.S. will not provoke China on these issues and engage in solving issues through consultation.

Michael Raska

They use the South China Sea as political, economic and informational means to project power and to influence domestic and external perception that the South China Sea is basically Chinese. This puts the U.S. and China into contending trajectories, but neither side has the strategic interest to escalate beyond these low-level incidents.

Justin Higgins

China's seizure of a U.S. unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) operating lawfully and in plain sight of a U.S. Navy vessel was unacceptable. China's action had no basis under international law.

Geng Shuang

If the [one-China policy] is compromised or interfered with, any sound and steady development in China-U.S. relations and cooperation in various fields is out of the question.

Zhang Huang

As soon as an underwater drone enters our waters for close in surveillance, it may be used to collect all sorts of information about submarine routes for our navy, seriously threatening our naval security.

Ni Lexiong

This is a much smaller incident, it won't affect the overall picture of China-U.S. relations.

Yang Yi

If China needs to take it, we'll take it. [The United States] can't block us. It's natural for us to take possession of and research for a bit these types of things that America sends to our doorstep.

Yang Yujun

In order to prevent this device from posing a danger to the safe navigation of passing ships and personnel, the Chinese lifeboat adopted a professional and responsible attitude in investigating and verifying the device.

Peter Cook

We have registered our objection to China's unlawful seizure of a U.S. unmanned underwater vehicle operating in international waters in the South China Sea. Through direct engagement with Chinese authorities, we have secured an understanding that the Chinese will return the UUV to the United States.

Mira Rapp-Hooper - Center for a New American Security

This move, if accurately reported, is highly escalatory, and it is hard to see how Beijing will justify it legally.

Chris Hackett

I'm sure there will be a lot of drones given as Christmas gifts, and we'll start to see more drone-related claims.

Justin Herndon - Allstate Insurance

Generally speaking, we evaluate every claim on its own merit. We continue to follow the evolution of drones and its impact on our customers' policies.

Khaled Gabry

With the collapse of Saddam's regime and the intervention of the United States, Iraq was left with no government. So we decided to call the tribal people to protect the relics. We sent people to set up check points and patrol the area.

Khaled Gabry

We don't know exactly how many relics the extremists have taken away, but we know they took some portable and easy-to-smuggle cultural artefacts.

Hong Yoo-jung

The position of the thumb determines the speed and direction of the drone.

Chad Colby

You literally push a couple of buttons, the drone flies the field like a lawnmower, collects the data, and processes the data. It's a very valuable tool.

Don Meij

We invested in this partnership, and technology, because we believe drone delivery will be an essential component of our pizza deliveries, so even more customers can receive the freshest, hottest pizza we can offer. I am proud of this partnership that has not only delivered this momentous event, but is leading the world for this important technology.

Don Meij

This will actually create jobs. As we expand, we will look to hire additional team members whose roles will be focused on drone order loading and fleet management.

Genevieve Corbin

Two crew members performed an evasive manoeuvre to avoid the unidentified object.

Brad Cicero

The pilots' initial assessment was that it looked like a balloon. After debriefing, there is potential that the object was a drone.

Adam Lisberg - DJI

Four years ago, it was enough to take something out of a box, you push a button and it flies. The smart money is now in drone services.

Rory O'Driscoll - Scale Venture Partners

Consumers buy drones, and it's a disposable item. They play with it, and then they are done.

Erinn Murphy

This is not only a surprise to us, but another ding on management's credibility. Not only were we surprised by the modest level of initial units sold, but we believe it is a possibility that Karma will not be available for the key holiday season.

Paul Griffiths

If people start to think you can't fly into Dubai because you may get diverted because they can't control the drone activity in the area, then that has a very serious reputational impact.

Paul Griffiths

If people are caught infringing the airspace and threatening the safety of civil aviation, then clearly the penalties have to reflect that.

Paul Griffiths

We have got to find a way of controlling it immediately. We just cannot have any more closures caused by infringements of drones in controlled airspace.

Mark R. Cheadle - US Army

There are US service members working with the Tunisian security forces for counter terrorism and they are sharing intelligence from various sources, to include unarmed aerial platforms.

Jeanne Holm

We want more people who are drone operators, interested in robotics and understand data analytics and visualization. We are in a hiring mode and recruiting heavily.

Peter Hutton

We think the space has gotten interesting ... and we like the idea of having storylines around individuals that we can build up as heroes. We see this as a journey toward a younger demographic.

Terry Francona - Fox Sports Interactive Media

You know, it's kind of self-explanatory. I think we've all, probably everybody in here, probably at some point or another had a drone-related problem.

Terry Francona - Fox Sports Interactive Media

I was like, Uh oh. You could've given me a lot of guesses and I wouldn't have come up with this one.

Josh Tomlin

This isn't the first obstacle we've had to overcome. So face it head-on. And we've talked about it since day one of spring training. We're never going to back down from a challenge. This is another challenge for us to accept and move forward. The next guy that comes up has to step up and do their part and hopefully it's just a little bump in the road and we can continue to be successful.

Josh Tomlin

It really doesn't affect me at all. It will be on my fifth day, I'll be on normal rest. When I found out I was going tomorrow, I stuck to the game plan that I was going to do Monday and go out there and compete and win a game.

Terry Francona - Fox Sports Interactive Media

J.T. is probably the easiest guy in the world. He handles everything. He's about as tough mentally as you're going to find. He was excited.

Wendy Taylor

Mosquitoes are pretty small and they are pretty light so you can pack a lot of punch in these small devices. That drone can then go back and reload.

Wim Zwijnenburg

You already see things happening in Ukraine, gangs in Mexico are using drones, and in Ireland, gangs there are using surveillance. Add a small amount of explosives to a small drone, and even the psychological factor is pretty significant.

Andrew Uerkwitz - Oppenheimer Holdings

When it comes to package delivery, we're kind of negative on that. Aside from just weight concerns and automation, [there are] privacy concerns.

Andrew Uerkwitz - Oppenheimer Holdings

For drones to get...$60 billion added to the economy, you really need self-flying drones and so forth.

Andreas Jahnke - Lufthansa Consulting

The market potential for the commercial use of drones in the wind energy sector is growing rapidly.

Holly Kasun

As we were going through the paces of developing this technology, we were using Lego bricks to rapid prototype, to test and see if we could get things to fly, [whether it was] different configurations or how much weight.

Holly Kasun

You can start going down that creative problem-solving path, which is the point of it, the experiential side of project-based learning.

Holly Kasun

The crash is the beginning of the experience, really, because the first few times you can say, what happened, why did I crash?

Holly Kasun

When you start building different configurations and designs, you can say, My weight was off. My balance was off.

Holly Kasun

We realized this was a handy tool and a really fun way to be able to experiment with drones.

Nicholas Woodman - GoPro

Karma is simply the best solution out there for stabilization in the air or handheld or mounted to your favorite gear. And GoPro is the only company in the world that is making this solution possible, so I think we're in a really good position.

Nicholas Woodman - GoPro

It's the most exciting product we've ever made. It's certainly the most enabling product in terms of helping people capture incredible professional-quality footage of their lives and share stories like they're used to seeing on the big screen at the movies.

Lia Riech - PrecisionHawk

"First and foremost, safety is the top priority". "We also want to continue pushing the boundaries. Obviously it's important for us to cover the acreage that is representative of our clients".

Tero Heinonen - Sharper Shape

It is commercially proven. This is something that opens such a huge market that will simply help any American company using drones.

Lia Riech - PrecisionHawk

First and foremost, safety is the top priority. We also want to continue pushing the boundaries. Obviously it's important for us to cover the acreage that is representative of our clients.

Derrick Maple

As tension builds in East Asia, so does advancements in UAV programmes. Strong growth is expected in India as well, due to its significant border requirements.

Derrick Maple

Integration into non-segregated airspace is becoming critically important globally as operations expand, with rules and regulations needed to address this demand – for military and civil markets alike.

Mark Blanks

It's real customers that are working and need lunch and want it delivered by drone.

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

As I'm here in Africa, I'm deeply disappointed to hear that SpaceX's launch failure destroyed our satellite that would have provided connectivity to so many entrepreneurs and everyone else across the continent. Fortunately, we have developed other technologies like Aquila [Facebook's internet drone] that will connect people as well. We remain committed to our mission of connecting everyone, and we will keep working until everyone has the opportunities this satellite would have provided.

Al Feinberg - Nasa

Fortunately, we have developed other technologies like Aquila [Facebook's internet drone] that will connect people as well.

Takashi Kawakami

The security environment surrounding Japan is severe, due to neighboring North Korea and China. I personally think [the increase] is not enough.

Steve Burns

We launch from atop the truck, and efficiencies are not as good as if you could just launch from 30 miles way, but they are staggering.

Steve Burns

Like a lot of new technologies you kind of go for the low hanging fruit. And the long distance out in rural areas and some suburban, that's the longest cost per package because it's not very efficient for the driver or the truck. So you start there, then you move inland, if you can imagine a drone jumping up on top of a building, maybe, and there is a central landing spot where everybody picks up their packages…it could get that precise.

Keller Rinaudo - Zipline

It is a vastly easier problem – flying than driving. If we had regulatory permission, we would be delivering to your house right now.

Dave Meredith

This is an incredibly concerning incident; the close proximity of the drone to the passenger aircraft shows a complete disregard by the operator for public safety, and we are appealing to the public for information to help us track down this reckless drone operator.

Stephen Prior

All of the battery-powered multi-rotors suffer from poor endurance, so 20-30 minutes is tops. We can fly, essentially, forever provided we've got fuel in the tank in the fuel generator in the ground station.

Stephen Prior

It's basically a virtual mast, so you could imagine surveillance operations, rescue missions at sea or on land, surveillance of large complexes like nuclear power stations.

Stephen Prior

There are expensive systems out there; very very expensive military systems, so a quarter of a million pounds plus. And we sit somewhere in between that. Our price point is around about 75,000 pounds (GBP) for a complete system solution.

Ned Price

The president has emphasized that the U.S. Government should be as transparent as possible with the American people about our counter-terrorism operations, the manner in which they are conducted, and their results. Our counter-terrorism actions are effective and legal, and their legitimacy is best demonstrated by making public more information about these actions as well as setting clear standards for other nations to follow.

Paul Misener - Amazon.com

The U.K. is a leader in enabling drone innovation – we've been investing in Prime Air research and development here for quite some time.

Gary Herbert - Brandywine Global Investment Management

Now we're way past, north of $10 million because we had to ground aircraft all because of a drone.

Paul Pillar

We're still faced with the basic question: Is the number of bad guys who are taken out of commission by drone strikes greater or less than the number of people who are inspired to turn to violent acts.

Courtney Robinson

The purpose of taking the pills is to show they are safe because in the North (Northern Ireland) there is a lot of scaremongering around the issue.

Kim Hoelmer

A drone would be a lot more precise and could apply the pesticide where it was needed, and presumably nowhere else. So that would be minimizing the impact.

Chaudhry Nisar Khan

You could not see a spot of paint ... that's how bad it was hit. How was a passport lying just a few yards away? So first we have to establish that, whether he was actually using it.

John Kerry

We have had longstanding conversations with Pakistan and Afghanistan about this objective with respect to Mullah Mansour, and both countries' leaders were notified of the air strike. Mullah Mansour, as I said a moment ago, has been actively involved in planning attacks in Kabul, across Afghanistan, presenting a threat to Afghan civilians and to the coalition forces that are there.

John Kerry

This action sends a clear message to the world that we will continue to stand with our Afghan partners as they look to build a more stable, united, secure and prosperous Afghanistan. The United States has long maintained that an Afghan-led, Afghan-owned reconciliation process is the shortest way to achieve peace and peace is what we want. Mansour was a threat to that effort and to bringing an end to the violence.

Michael Pachter - Wedbush Securities

The biggest surprise is that they delayed Karma. They said they wanted to work on the features... they did not explain the delay and why they did not notice it three months ago.

Nicholas Woodman - GoPro

While we had to make the difficult decision to delay our drone, Karma, the upside is that Karma's launch should now benefit from the holidays.

Nicholas Woodman - GoPro

Consumer demand for GoPro remains solid. Unit sell-thru was close to first quarter 2015 levels, a quarter which benefited from the launch of HERO4. Revenue exceeded our guide and, importantly, unit sell-thru rates were approximately 50% higher than sell-in which drove global inventory levels down. And while we had to make the difficult decision to delay our drone, Karma, the upside is that Karma's launch should now benefit from the holidays.

Abu Firas

May God accept him as a martyr, he was a commanding figure. This was engineered by the Crusader axis.

Matt Sweeny

Conducting the first drone delivery in an urban setting is a major achievement, taking us closer to the day that drones make regular deliveries to your front doorstep. The Nevada delivery demonstrates that advanced drone systems allow aerial vehicles to safely navigate around buildings and deliver packages with precision within a populated area.

Matthew Sweeney

A drone has successfully delivered a package to a residential location in a small Nevada town. This marks as the first fully autonomous urban drone delivery in the US.

Matthew Sweeney

The six-rotor drone flew about a half-mile along a pre-programmed delivery route on March 10 and lowered the package outside a vacant residence in an uninhabited area of Hawthorne, southeast of Reno. The route was established using GPS. A pilot and visual observers were on standby during the flight but weren't needed.

Judith Sherman

There are many delays in the continuum of getting HIV positive children on treatment, they need to come in early for testing, ideally before 2 months, between 6 and 8 weeks, their tests, the dry bloodspots need to get from the health facilities to one of the 8 laboratories nationwide.

Dianne Feinstein

This is one more incident that could have brought down an airliner, and it's completely unacceptable. A near-miss of 200 feet should serve as a stark reminder of the dangers posed by reckless drone use.

David Cameron

The money will go towards efforts to move people from the camps in Calais to facilities elsewhere in France.

Osama bin Laden

There are new brothers, perhaps some would be suitable in the future, but not now.

Rafi Yoeli - Urban Aeronautics

Imagine a dirty bomb in a city, with a lot of radiation, or chemical material, or something that is evolving inside a city centre with no humans being able to get into that area, and no helicopter being able, especially if its an unmanned helicopter, being able to go into that confined area without hitting something on the way.

Rafi Yoeli - Urban Aeronautics

It can operate inside villages and cities, land on the sidewalk, or in rough terrain, on a path, in a clearing in a forest, and it doesn't have overhead rotor and tail rotors which are characteristic of helicopters and which cause so many accidents. It does all of that automatically, it can fly very low close to terrain, it has various sensors to enable it to do this mission without any supervision.

Wu Haining

We need to have pilots along with licenses, because safety may be the biggest concern from the operation connected with drones. Although we have insurance, we however need tight regulations pertaining to studying and training avoiding any mishaps.

Yariv Bash

Let's say you forgot your cell phone back home. A friend of yours can just connect the cell phone to the drone and it can send it to you.

Derrick Xiong - EHang

So the people sitting in there is not going to be a pilot. You know, you don't need to get a license in the future. You're just a passenger. You are going in there (the drone) and sit in there and enjoy the flight.

Derrick Xiong - EHang

The cruising speed, the standard speed is going to be 63 miles per hour (101km) and the cruising time will be 23 minutes. So we are talking about 20 plus miles (32km) at this time.

Mark Ven

When I clap twice the light turns on, as it detects that I'm clapping. When I write an English 'R' in the air the red light turns on, and when I write an English 'Y' the yellow light turns on. Lastly, when I clap twice the light turns off. During this process we are communicating and interacting on the Human Computer Interface by using the internet of things, and the wearable device.

Wang Si-kai

We used to play with drones using controllers, but now we could control them with our hands. It's something I'd love to buy after seeing it here.

Bob Blakley - Fairfax

In Fairfax County we have two helicopters and they are very expensive to operate. Unmanned drones would allow us to deploy aerial overview very quickly and that could probably resolve a lot of situations in a safer manner and in a more timely manner.

Matthew Creger

We go and make custom solutions for DJI (=drone manufacturer) products. This is going to be great for search & rescue, solar panel inspection, agriculture. And so we have a lot of clients coming in right now.

Roland Freudenstein

No, we're not. I think there is an elaborate procedure by the US Department of Justice, to take the American example, to authorise drone strikes. It goes through several stages. There have to be decisions by civilians, by judges, that this particular strike is the only means available.

Andrew Stroehlein - Human Rights Watch

I think that's a very dangerous road to go down. I mean, international law has served us well in many instances and creates clear rules that everyone understands. We're looking at this from a very western perspective. What if Russia flies a drone over Warsaw, or let's say London. Let's say they fly a drone over London and kill someone they say is an enemy. What would we say? We would be outraged. The West would be rightfully, absolutely outraged, and that's what is going on in many cases.

Alain De Neve

Drone attacks have been carried out in a very permissive environment recently.

Andrew Stroehlein - Human Rights Watch

The problem comes with the legal advice that governments are taking about drones. And that's not made public. For example in the UK's drone strike in Syria on August 21, killing two British citizens alleged to be working with the so-called Islamic State – the legal advice which David Cameron said he had received, he will not make public. Nor will he make public the evidence on the basis of which these strikes were made, so basically he's made himself judge, jury and executioner.

Alain De Neve

Drone strikes don't prevent you having troops on the ground. Sometimes in order to target, you have to reply on troops on the ground.

Andrew Stroehlein - Human Rights Watch

I go back again to my London argument. SO President Putin says well you have to trust me that we have evidence and I have taken legal advice on my drone strike. I will not show you the legal advice or the evidence. Will you trust President Putin on this?

David Cameron

We were exercising the UK's inherent right to self-defence. There was clear evidence of the individuals in question planning and directing armed attacks against the UK. These were part of a series of actual and foiled attempts to attack the UK and our allies.

David Cameron

Britain will play its part alongside our other European partners. But because we're not part, this is important, of the EU's borderless Schengen agreement or its relocation initiative, Britain is able to decide its own approach.

Brian Grant

Our new flagship model, the Tornado H9-20, is going to be our prosumer (= professional & consumer) model, this is going to fly for over 30 minutes, payload up to five pounds, range of over a mile if you really need it… it's very simple, just get-out-of-the box, charge the batteries and deploy.

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

In the US, there are half a million drones expected to be purchased in this year's holiday season. But fans may not have a long-term fun with their Christmas presents. The US Federal Aviation Administration has just announced that there will be tough regulations to ensure the safety of the airspace soon.

Brian Grant

The industry wants to grow. There is potential here, it's a billion-dollar industry, it's going to be even more, it's here to stay. You have got the Amazons that really want to use it, the Googles.

David Obonyo

Jungal was one of the main Al-Shabaab planning and operations bases in Gedo region which has seen an increase in militia activities recently. This is a setback for the terrorists.

Violeta Bulc

There are more and more drones around us and we do need to set up some sort of framework, a legal framework within which the drones can operate in the future.

Jean-Marc Tanguy

We don't know whether there are five drones or one drone seen in five locations. The timings of the sightings have not been clearly established. It could be someone controlling these drones through a window, and if they're in the city centre they don't need to move to cover a big area. Now the problem is to detect where these drones are being controlled from.

Faris Kaki

I have worked in the media industry more than 30 years and I have never seen such interest. The power of social media is extraordinary. We just shared a video and now many media companies from the US are calling us.

Colleen Taylor - TechCrunch

Drone technology is huge. Personal drones are very big. They just keep getting cheaper and they just keep getting easier to fly. So, definitely at CES, look up: not all of this stuff is just going to be on the floor.

Janis Eglite

Of course there's still room for improvement, and they're still working on it, but once it's finished, it will be amazing.

George Little

The United States has communicated to the Iranians that we will continue to conduct surveillance flights over international waters over the Arabian Gulf, consistent with long-standing practice and our commitment to the security of the region.

Charitha Pattiaratchi

In this region there has been a big eddy, which is going round and round. So if any debris came from the plane it would have been contained around a 200 km radius, but we also had a tropical cyclone, a typhoon, very close to that area, it would have mixed up the whole area, so any debris at the surface would have been sinking.

Chris Cummins - Euronews

Let's move to a more controversial and complex arena. What are the pros and cons of drone technology in disaster response?

Chaudhry Nisar Khan

The government of Pakistan does not see this drone attack as an attack on an individual, but as an attack on the peace process (…) the entire perspective of Pak-U.S. relations and cooperation is going to be reviewed.

Aleksander Ciric

What they did to us there in Kosovo… I believe that is the root cause of this and it is not going to end well.

Ivica Dacic

This was a political provocation. The main question for me is how will the European Union and UEFA react, because if someone from Serbia had unveiled a flag of Greater Serbia in Tirana or Pristina, it would already be on the agenda of the UN Security Council.

It is a regretful situation on which we will report; the referee, myself and the security advisor. The circumstances were such that we couldn't continue the match. You all saw what happened and I cannot comment on who is to blame or what to blame. I will submit a report with my colleagues to UEFA and UEFA will decide what will happen further.

Hishammuddin Hussein

We will not scale down. This is the promise that I made to the families of the passengers and we will continue. But as we move forward there might be occasions where some of the countries might want to scale down. There are other countries that have come forward and we have to find creative ways to do that.

Drones are always limited in their battery life, but since we are flying so fast and come to the location at that high speed and it lands, we actually only use five percent of the battery. So, that's also why we are able to draw so much power from the battery so that it is able to fly this fast.

Barack Obama

I'm optimistic we can continue to make important strides in moving forward because both the Pakistani people and the American people have suffered terribly from terrorism in the past.

Laurent Eck

We're going to teach the drone a trajectory. To do this it utilises a camera that faces the floor to memorise the route. For the return, it has learnt its way.

Benjamin Netanyahu

I view with great gravity this attempt to violate our border. We will continue to do what is necessary to defend the security of Israel's citizens.
