We understand that with the advancement of technology, that some of our competitive events would want to embrace the use of drones to capture video. Some things you need to think about. Most of the video competitions will be taking place inside public buildings, in limited space with the public watching. All of this will entail the liability of the individual/school/event coordinator becoming liable if there is an occurrence that would possibly cause damage to property or bodily injury. Since these drones are subject to direction by the user the chance of operator error would be too great for SkillsUSA Texas to permit their use at this time. Most public buildings have strict prohibitions on the use of drones in their buildings.
