DJI News, DJI Rumors, the all-new Robomaster S1, Phantom 4 Pro V2.0, Drone Regulations in Japan and much, much more…
Our biggest drone news story is about the all-new, DJI Robomaster S1. The Robomaster S1, an educational robot, priced at $499 is a ground-based drone that requires self-assembly. The Robomaster S1 is equipped with 6 sensors, has a top speed of 8 mph and can be programmed with Python and Scratch.
Our next big story is about the DJI Spark 2. Earlier we had reported that DJI was planning on launching a new and improved, DJI Spark 2 in July. However, the latest DJI rumors suggest that this release date has been pushed back. After news of the DJI Phantom 5 turned out to be a damp squib, this is certainly another letdown for drone lovers.
In our next drone news story, we talk about drone patents. Drone patents certainly give us an indication of market trends and remind us how some companies continue to dominate the drone industry. According to recently released data, DJI is the biggest filer of patents, by far. In fact, with more than 250 patents filed in 2017-2018 alone, DJI’s tally was more than that of Amazon and Google combined.
Other topics discussed include DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 and drone regulations in Japan. Tune in to listen to the latest and most exciting drone news of last week. Fly Safe!
