Avid drone flyers often times buy their aircraft depending on the transmission system it operates on. Depending on your needs, this could be the first thing you worry about or the last. Being one of the largest drone companies, DJI uses a range of proprietary transmission systems and it’s incredibly important to know the differences between them. Let’s go over a quick summary.

Yesterday and today two new drone videos were posted on YouTube, that show the Apple’s head offices being cleaned and prepped ahead of this year’s WWDC 2018. The first video was shot by Duncan Sinfield with the DJI Inspire 2 and the Zenmuse X7 camera and the second video was shot by Matthew Roberts, who used a Phantom 4 Pro to capture the spaceship-like building. Surprisingly it is still possible to fly your drone over Apple’s office building, in Cupertino, California, after a DJI Phantom 4 crashed on top of the roof back in February.

Day 5 of Leg 9 of the Volvo Ocean Race has been one of record-breaking sailing. Both Team AkzoNobel (Dutch) and Team Brunel (Dutch) broke the 600 mile barrier in 24 hours. A feat that up until now had never been achieved with a sailboat. To capture spectacular footage and photos Team Brunel flew their DJI Phantom 4 drone in 30 knots of wind. Check out this video and the landing of the drone afterward. Simply amazing!

ParaZero just announced a new “SafeAir” parachute system designed for the DJI Mavic Pro and Phantom series. The company already made parachute systems for larger drone models such as the Matrice 600 series but will now be launching similar systems for the smaller DJI drones. One benefit of this latest model is that the parachute is re-packable by the end-user and thus can be re-used. This system does not only work when you encounter a total malfunction of the drone and it comes falling out of the sky but it also when it detects excessive roll angle, in which case it will shut down the propellers before deploying itself.

We thought Casey Neistat might have been at the DJI event in New York City today but no, he didn’t need to be there. He already had a DJI Mavic Air. Of course! In the video that he just posted on YouTube, Casey compares the new Mavic Air to the Spark, Mavic Pro, and the Phantom 4 Pro Obsidian.
This time Casey did not fly his drone in Manhattan. Instead, he and Peter McKinnon flew to Bermuda for some change of scenery.
