Exciting DJI News, DJI Rumors and other Drone News…
In our first big drone news story, we have some exciting news for you. DJI has resumed production of their flagship drone, the Phantom 4 Pro. We have repeatedly discussed why the Phantom 4 Pro is unmatched when it comes to reliability and versatility. But, will DJI again discontinue production in 2020 when ADSB receivers on all drones become mandatory? Will we see a slew of DJI drone launches in 2020 when this new requirement kicks in?
Our next big drones news story is about the DJI Ronin-SC. DJI has launched a mini version of their popular camera gimbal, the Ronin-S. This new camera gimbal comes with some pretty impressive features like Active Trak 3.0 and Force Mobile. Weighing just 2.4 lbs, this compact camera gimbal allows you to follow a subject, pretty much like a drone. While this new camera gimbal is lighter and cheaper (costs $439) than its predecessor, will this compact build limit payload?
Our next story is about New York City drone laws. An archaic 71-year old law prohibits takeoff and landing of drones in New York City. Now, two New York City Council members have proposed new drone laws that legalize drone use. Other topics discussed include anamorphic lenses for the Mavic 2 and the new BBC documentary, Britain’s Next Air Disaster? Drones.
