This week on the InterDrone Podcast we sat down with Chris Anderson, CEO of 3DR. Chris is the CEO of 3D Robotics, founder of the Linux Foundation Dronecode Project and founder of the DIY Drones and DIY Robocars communities. From 2001 through 2012 he was the Editor in Chief of Wired Magazine. Before Wired he was with The Economist for seven years in London, Hong Kong and New York in various positions, ranging from Technology Editor to US Business Editor. We discussed the Booz Allen Hamilton study which found no evidence of unauthorized data transfers by top Chinese drone manufacturers, VCs remining bullish on eVTOLs, with cargo and freight applications leading the way, type certification in the UAS industry, how Chris started DIY Drones, created the Solo and ultimately went head to head with DJI, and much more.
