[liberationtech] Pirate Bay turns to drones

Yes, telecomix is looking at drones, and really the proposal by TPB is outlandish to current drone builders/operators, but most of the limitations seem to be artificially limited technical issues that no one has thought past due to limitations by US/UK/EU regulations. If you disregard these rules, long range drones are well within the realm of possibility. I think an open source drone program is possible, if people are willing to commit the resources and accept the overall development costs.
