Own a drone? Law enforcement will soon be allowed to shoot it down

I own a DJI Spark. It's not the most expense drone out there, but it's a good one. I love its ability to take video and photos from angles that I could never manage from the ground. I do not, however, love the fact that law enforcement officials in the United States will soon be able to shoot it down. According to TechCrunch, the Senate passed the FAA Reauthorization Act earlier this week. It's a bill that does a lot of good stuff like allowing for the continued funding of the FAA and ensuring t...

DJI can now approve flights in no-fly-zones at their discretion

DJI has just announced that they have been approved to offer Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) services for professional drone pilots. The FAA set up LAANC this year to help professional drone pilots operate within controlled airspace. The FAA has been putting DJI through a “rigorous test and validation of DJI’s technology capabilities”, […] The post DJI can now approve flights in no-fly-zones at their discretion appeared first on DIY Photography.

First DJI, now Bang & Olufsen gets Line Friends-themed products

Line is a pretty busy company. Beyond a messaging app that claims over 160 million users, the company operates service like music streaming, manga, food delivery, games and it is also venturing into crypto. The company has long been known for its playful characters — Line Friends — which are a core part of its sticker sets, but now the zany cartoons are making their way to real-life products. Line has its own Echo-style smart speaker, and off the back of its Brown Bear-themed DJI drone, it is...

The DJI Mavic 2 Is Our New Favorite Drone

The idea behind the DJI Mavic promises that any adventurer can take professional-grade aerial photography with a compact drone. That’s probably why the company called the original model the Mavic Pro, even though the drone had its shortcomings. With the Mavic 2 series, however, that proposition gets more interesting…Read more...

DJI Mavic 2 review

The Mavic Pro was a revelation. It wasn’t a perfect product, to be sure, but it represented a new paradigm for DJI and the consumer drone industry in general. It was compact, folding up into a nice, portable package, while still being portable enough to shove into a backpack. It was also the beginning of a new line for the company, paving the way for the Mavic Air and Spark — both even more portable than their predecessor. In the two years since it was introduced, however, the company hasn’t ...

DJI's Mavic 2 Series Drones Come With More Powerful Cameras and So Many Sensors

We’ve known for some time that the future of consumer drones would be tiny, high quality, and mostly crash-proof. DJI just revealed its best attempt at all three with the new Mavic 2 series. There are two of them: the Mavic 2 Pro and the Mavic 2 Zoom. They fold up. They have great cameras. And in a first for DJI, they…Read more...

DJI’s Mavic 2 brings key camera upgrades to the folding drone

The Mavic Pro was a revelation. Introduced in 2016, the folding drone wasn’t perfect, but it helped usher in a new era of devices for DJI and the industry at large. The original Mavic helped make consumer drones more portable and accessible, and spurred a line that now includes the Mavic Air and Mavic Spark. Two years later, the world’s largest drone manufacturer hit New York City to unveil the product’s successor. Like the original Pro, imaging is at the heart of the upgrade. In fact, the Ma...

Watch DJI unveil the Mavic 2 drone today

After delays, DJI is finally ready to take the wraps off of the next generation Mavic drone. We’ve already seen bits and pieces of what the company’s offering with the new folding drone, which appears to be focused on bigger and better imaging.

DJI teams up with Line to produce weird social media animal themed Spark drones

It’s an odd pairing, DJI and messaging app Line. They’ve come together to produce Spark drones themed on one of their “Line Friend” characters. That character is a bear, called Brown. The newly themed Spark is, naturally, brown. And it features pictures of the bear on both the drone itself and the controller.

DJI releases a Spark drone with a bear face on it

We’re still waiting for a rescheduled time for the July Mavic 2 event, but here’s something while you wait, I guess. It’s the Spark, but with a bear face. Honestly, there’s not really much to add that isn’t already covered by the few thousand words we already wrote about the DJI Spark. Read those, but imagine that there’s also a seemingly disinterested bear character starting at you the whole time, and you’ve got a pretty close approximation of the Line Friends (Brown) l Spark.

DJI Mavic Pro seems to be getting a sequel pretty soon, the new drone according to DroneDJ is said to be just called the Mavic 2. The new drone will still have the signature folding propeller arms, would include side obstacle avoidance cameras. There is also a chance it might feature one on the rear as well to provide 360-degree obstacle avoidance. The Mavic 2 shows a GoPro Karma-style removable gimbal that would let you swap cameras.

Is this DJI’s next Mavic drone?

Here’s what we know for sure: DJI’s got a big event coming up. It was originally scheduled for July 18, but was ultimately pushed back so the company “can deliver according to [its] standard of innovation.” The timing certainly seems right for a followup to 2016’s Mavic Pro, and the “bigger picture” event artwork appears to confirm a focus on imaging. This next part gets a bit more speculative, however. DroneDJ has published an image a (relatively) large folding drone bearing the name “Mavic...

Can drone aesthetics apply to cars or vice-versa?

Drones don’t quite have a ‘visual language’ set yet. Some look like books that open up to become drones (take the Hovercam, for instance), others have four distinct legs, with propellers mounted on them (like the DJI Phantom), and some come with a relatively small, boxy design that folds down and fits into a bag, or even to the underside of your phone… so no, drones don’t have a distinctly streamlined visual language yet, so what about borrowing from another automotive category?The DJI Mavic Car...
