DroneRise – Rick Allen found with a DJI Mavic Pro, first drone photo of the K2 mountain and more…

Good morning! Yesterday Billy and I spend a good part of the day flying the DJI Mavic Air and the Parrot Anafi at the Lyndhurst Mansion in Tarrytown, NY. Therefore we have fewer headlines than usual but expect a video from us to come your way soon. With that, yesterday we did have some big news. Mountaineer, Rick Allen who was presumed dead was found alive by drone pilot Bartek Bargiel using his DJI Mavic Pro. Needless to say that we are all glad to hear that he made it back to base camp safely and is in good shape. We also got to see what might well be the first drone photo of the K2 mountain. The photo was taken from an elevation of 8,400 meters high, well above the altitude limit DJI informs you that your Mavic Pro can fly. Check it out! Lastly, Amazon Prime Day and DJI’s Super Sale started yesterday and both events are not done yet, so if you are looking to get a drone at a discount, today is the day!
