Folks, all I can say is that business is booming for these unmanned aerial vehicles. There were tiny ones controlled by your phone, huge ones controlled from within a command vehicle and then there were the more popular, average-sized desktop versions controlled with your basic hand held transmitter with viewing screen(s).
There were keynote speeches from corporate bigwigs, discussion panels, workshops and even a film festival showing outstanding cinema filmed strictly by drones. Oh, and the fly zones! The showroom had a few cages made of safety netting for actual drone demonstrations!
I was only able to spend a few hours at the expo but I will say it was impressive and rather overwhelming. Next year's event will be held at The Rio Hotel and Casino should be bigger and better as this relatively new technology is vastly growing in use and demand.
The arms and claws on this drone were a bit creepy... it was almost like it was alive.
