Rookie on the Sticks


Santa Barbara Independent News Editor Tyler Hayden did a little drone flying in preparation for this week’s cover story. It went pretty well, mainly because few risks were taken. “You’ve really mastered hovering,” said Hayden’s instructor. “Now let’s see you actually fly the thing.” After a few quick turns and a sudden descent, he handed the controls back. Better safe than sorry.
