The Man Without Horns (and nose ring)


sUAS News Podcast interview with Raphael Pirker (aka Trappy), and Brendan Schulman. We spent 45 minutes with these two gentlemen hearing about the progression of events since the FAA imposed their $10,000 fine.Gene and I tried to pull back and side story out of the interview, without judgment and or trying the case. Very difficult to do, as we wanted to hear all about the strategy, and plans for working the motion to dismiss.

This is a saga that the whole community is following closely and to say the case is polarizing is an understatement. However, I believe that most of us in the community are pulling for Raphael to prevail. I hope folks get as much out of the conversation as we did.
