Every year, the FAA releases its own report with the latest data on the drone industry in the United States. We learn how drones sales are doing, personal vs. recreational, and other interesting tidbits. But we don’t usually have the benefit of hearing how an expert interprets this data, especially historically, to produce a snapshot of trends. That’s different this year.
On August 8th, 200 drones took to the skies to celebrate Lisa from the South Korean girl group Blackpink’s 4th anniversary. The drones lit up the sky above Shanghai, China displaying messages about the group’s member.
It’s happened again. A little more than one week after another illegal drone flight caused a delay at an MLB game, a nearly identical scenario happened this evening in Boston. Out of the blue and over Fenway Park came a drone, bringing the game to an abrupt halt.
Well, well, well. About a week after a photo of what could be a DJI FPV racing drone was leaked, there’s further indications that DJI has something up its sleeve in Shenzhen. The latest version of the Android “Fly” app has some new, not obviously visible commands that seem to line up with speculation that DJI might be adding a drone to its FPV Camera/Googles ensemble.
