This is still one of the most awesome uses I've seen for drones. I tried to get this Oxford-based start up to submit their trailer to Flying Robot international Film Festival last year, to no avail as they were likely busy planting trees. Basically, they're tackling the threat of deforestation, head-on, by dropping seeds in areas that need it most.

So this is pretty cool check out the little video, Facebook among other tech giants are designing drones that will be able to operate on solar power to stay aloft for months at a time providing rural areas reliable internet access. Whats even cooler is that Facebook has no intention of running the drones but instead is looking to give the plans to the local governments that would be running the drones. Always great to see how people are pushing the limits of drones to further increase the good for humanity! http://www.wired.com/2016/07/facebooks-giant-internet-beaming-drone-finally-takes-flight/
Hi all, Just got an email from Ben Blackwell, a high school student in Gastonia, North Carolina. He wants to start a drone club at his high school, and he launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund it. Thought this was a nice project, and I felt good about sharing it with the UAV Coach community. Here's the link: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gastonia-nc-teen-drone-club--4/x/13240473#/ #dronesforgood #stemeducation #giddyup
