I have a lot of dreams about flying, while we're on the flying and dreams thing. Had one a couple weeks ago that remains memorable:
I was testing an autonomous passenger drone. Four rotors with a little single-seat passenger compartment. I sit inside, strap in, pair my iPhone to the onboard system, it picks up the route to the destination, and up it goes. All's well. I'm monitoring the thing's progress when all of a sudden the power starts fluctuating and the drone starts losing altitude. So I'm like, "Welp, fuck it," unstrap, open the door, and get out of the drone. Whereupon I proceed to just float there while the drone falls down, goes boom.
Then my phone starts ringing and its ATC telling me to quit standing around in their airspace.
