Unmanned Aerial Systems – better known as drones – are swarming in popularity.  The Federal Aviation Administration expects drone sales to climb from 2.5 million in 2016, to seven million in 2020.  That’s a lot of drones in the air.  As KLCC’s Brian Bull reports, some hope safety keeps pace with all of the enthusiasm.
