The drone hovered through the hearing room in the Rayburn House Office Building. But it also had a mishap: During one takeoff, it was brought about five feet off the floor, only to crash back on the carpet.
“Whoops,” said a company representative, as those watching laughed.
The craft wasn’t broken, and continued on with the demonstration. Colin Guinn with 3D Robotics said the drone used Thursday costs about $500.
