@fanny, I get the impression you clicked "Start a Board" instead of "post message" as your comment has ended up on its own thread. "Post Message" posts a comment on the blog, and "reply" posts a reply to comeone else's comment. I've never seen any use for the "start a board" link, it seems to be mainly used by spammers.... present company excepted of course :-)

In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
