FAA’s Remote ID NPRM, Atti Mode for Mavic 2 Enterprise, Drones to be used for delivering marijuana in Seattle, Google Wing to conduct test flights in the UK
Our biggest story this week is about FAA’s Remote ID NPRM. All industry majors have raised a collective voice against this restrictive proposal which could seriously stunt the growth of the entire drone industry. In today’s show, Paul and Haye urge all members of the drone community to comment responsibly on this issue so that our efforts can have the desired impact on the outcome. Our Drone U Comment Guide can help you learn about the Remote ID NPRM and help you formulate your comment.
Our next story is about the Mavic 2 Enterprise. DJI has finally added Atti mode to the Mavic 2 Enterprise. Time and again, we have shared why a drone pilot needs to learn how to fly in Atti mode. Flying in Atti mode can help you grab buttery, smooth footage and also prevent a flyaway. With Atti mode now available on the Mavic 2 Enterprise, we speculate if DJI shall enable Atti mode on Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom as well.
Towards the end, we also talk a bit about drone deliveries. Plans are afoot to use drones for delivering marijuana in Seattle. And Google Wing is all set to conduct its test flights in the UK due to a more conducive regulatory environment. For all this and much, much more, tune in to our latest drone news show now!
