A few days ago, GoPro released their new Hero 7 action camera. Many FPV drone racers use GoPro cameras to capture amazing footage. Just check out some of these clips from the NYC Drone Film Festival earlier this year. Gab707 gives his thoughts on the Hero 7 in a YouTube video that is first, exclusively shared with DroneDJ. Check it out below and find out if the GoPro Hero 7 is the new must-have camera to capture stunning, stabilized aerial footage with your FPV quad.
Today the Tello remains the only drone on drone-giant DJI’s website that isn’t branded as a DJI-built drone. The feature-packed mini-drone arose from a partnership between Ryze, Intel, and DJI. Their goal was to create the ultimate beginner drone. When you hear names like “DJI” and “Intel” you immediately think, “this drone must pack the latest technology and be really expensive”. The Tello does indeed have a lot of incredible features. This little drone sports an HD camera, intelligent flight modes, image stabilization, and a handful of sensors for stable flight. What it doesn’t have is a high price tag. Just under $100, this small drone is worth every penny.
Manned aircraft such as the F-16 Fighting Falcon are fast and agile which make them the perfect candidate for aerial combat. Drones share this same athletic mobility and come in different variations from quadcopters to fixed-wing designs. With this potential, drones could one day fill the skies, taking down manned aircraft and fighting against each other.
Since the launch of the Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom, people who own the CystalSky displays had been quite frustrated as their displays were not compatible with these new drones. Many of them took to the DJI Forums to express their disappointment and to ask when an update would be available. Since the latest DJI GO 4.3.0 update, that problem has now bee solved and the DJI CrystalSky display works with the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom.
