    Feds conduct study to enhance safety for drone flying
There are an estimated 3 million drones that regularly fly over American skies, and by 
2020 experts estimate there will be 7 million -- the vast majority of those flown by 
hobbyists with little or no training.
With the increase in drones, there has also been an increase in accidents. The blades 
on a drone can slice bone deep, falling drones have knocked people out and there's
 the potential danger of fire or explosion from the lithium batteries that power drones.
The feds are so worried about potential dangers that they are taking part in a national
 study designed to increase drone safety. Crash dummies were used to to determine 
the extent of injuries drones can cause, which showed the biggest danger is from a
 falling drone hitting someone and causing blunt force trauma.
The study, which will continue this summer, also examines what drone manufacturers
 can do to mitigate problems, including adding shields to protect rotor blades and 
developing new safety standards for the lithium batteries. Researchers plan to 
create a series of tests that drone manufacturers can use to certify their drones 
can be safely operated in public.
