Detained drones to be used as security tools at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport

Hyderabad:  In the absence of official guidelines for disposal of confiscated drones, what was once turning out to be a headache for the Customs authorities at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (RGIA), will now in all likelihood add to their security apparatus. The DRI and Customs authorities are expected to soon start using the drones they impound from passengers at RGIA, for their operational purposes.

As many as 14 drones of varying makes, types, and categories, that were confiscated by the sleuths of RGIA's air cargo complex (ACC) over the last few years, will be now be transferred to the Chennai airport, considering it is one of the four focal customs commissionerates (FCC).
Meanwhile, the sleuths are documenting the number of drones withheld from passengers at the airport, which sources say, will not take the total number of drones over 20.

These include popular brands like Parrot Bebop drone skycontroller, crazyflie 2.0, Yidajia, and DJI mavic pro, among others and are known for their lightweight, high stability and excellent image quality. While the largest one -- a foldable drone with camera and battery charger -- weighs around 10.5 kg, the smallest one weighs just over 1 kg.
