We have some exciting drone news lined up for you this week.
Our biggest story this week is about the all-new DJI Ronin RS2. Last week, our good friend and drone pilot, Osita LV shared some images on his Twitter account which suggest that a new DJI gimbal, the Ronin RS might be in the works. The DJI Ronin has a loyal following not just among aerial photographers but also among ground photogaphers. Now, the latest industry reports suggest that after the Ronin S and the compact Ronin SC, DJI is gearing up to launch the DJI RS2.
Our next story is equally exciting. And all credit to good old Osita for this story as well. As per these reports, along with the Ronin SC, DJI is also planning to come out with a FPV drone. It shall be interesting to see if DJI is able to offer a complete FPV package consisting of a FPV drone, FPV goggles, and FPV googgles for less than $1,000.
In yet more news, DJI’s Brendan Schulman engaged in some friendly banter with Skydio on Twitter. While Skydio is of the opinion that fully autonomous drones are set to become reality soon, current drone laws dicatate that a drone cannot be flown without a pilot. So, which side of the fence do you set on? Do you think that complex creative and technical jobs can be executed flawlessly without any human intervention?
Other stories discussed in today’s show include uncorroborated drone crash stories and National Geographic’s George Steinmetz’s tryst with the NYPD. Tune in for some exciting insights!
