Good morning and happy Monday! Hopefully, you’ve had a great weekend? We still have no word from DJI on when the “See the Bigger Picture” event might be taking place. If the Chinese drone maker will give the press and media a 3-weeks heads up before the event takes place (like they have done in the past), we will be looking at the second half of August at the earliest. As far as other new is concerned we have a story about how two suspects were caught in a cornfield with the help of a drone and a K-9 unit as well as news of a Bulgarian drone capable of flying 1,550 miles while carrying 800 pounds. So, grab your coffee and jump right in.

Today’s video

Today’s video is from the hands of ‘Electric Life’ who used a drone to put together this short video of Lake Como in Italy showing the Villa d’Este and Comacina Island. All the footage is in 5K and looks stunning. Here is what the maker had to say”

“5K Drone Video of the spectacular Lake Como in Italy. Enjoy aerial views of Villa d’Este Luxury hotel, where countless celebrities have stayed and the gorgeous and peaceful Comacina Island, as well as mountain views and quaint small Italian lake towns. No wonder Lake Como is one of the most sought locations when visiting Italy.”
