Whenever a product goes out of stock for any period of time, it’s usually an indication that its replacement is on the way. And if DJI’s online store is anything to go by, they’re getting ready to announce a few. All package variants of the DJI Spark and DJI Phantom 4 are completely out of stock, with many Mavic Air, Mavic 2 and Inspire 2 packages also gone.

Last week we shared a video produced for the car manufacturer Tesla that showed some incredible footage of a first-person view drone flying through the new manufacturing plant in Berlin.
Last year, Microsoft announced Azure Space, a tool that brings together the possibilities of space with the power of the cloud. The company has now added a bunch of new capabilities to it, and some of the most interesting ones include “seeing” through clouds and turning blurry satellite images into high-quality photos that look like drone shots.
Before we jump into this blog post if you haven’t already read how I do drone light paintings horizontally in the sky be sure to check this out here. If you have done that already (or don’t wanna read something else) get ready to have your socks knocked off because we are flipping them into vertical space and animating our light paintings all with stop motion.
With the gift-giving season upon us, a lot of people are bound to be getting new drones in the not-too-distant future. Many of these drones will be received by people who’ve never flown a drone before. Quite a few of them may not still have a working drone by the end of the day. So it’s good to get yourself a little educated first, before you kill your shiny new, potentially expensive, toy.
In this video, Jeven Dovey and Aldryn Estacio from FlytPath go through ten of the biggest mistakes they see new drone pilots making, and some they’ve made themselves. Some of the items on the list are common sense once you’ve got the benefit of hindsight, while some are just good practice so you’re not disappointed with your shots.
French drone manufacturer, Parrot, creator of the fairly popular (considering it’s not a DJI) Bebop drone is leaving the lower end of the drone market, drones primarily considered “toys”, in order to focus on higher-end models for the commercial and military markets.
Wirecutter says that they received official conformation that Parrot is pulling out of the toy market. Online retailers have been running out of stock, and those stocks will not be replenished. They say that the Parrot Mambo and Swing product lines will be retired.
While his wife and kids were playing in the shallow water at New Smyrna Beach in Florida, Dan Watson decided to take their photo from air. And boy they were lucky that he did! As he got his Mavic 2 Pro into the air, he spotted a shark moving towards his family. He rushed them out of the water and took incredible photos as they were running to safety.
These days, drone videos have all become a bit… samey. But that’s largely because most people shooting drone videos are all using the same drones. The vast majority of which are made by DJI. DJI makes some fantastic drones, capable of shooting some incredible video. But they’re too “safe”. Designed to be stable, steady, predictable, and easy.
But what happens when you take away that safety? That stability? That predictability? Well, that’s when you’re really forced to learn how to fly.
Anybody who knows me knows that portable power on location is a big deal to me. Whether it’s being able to recharge batteries in the middle of nowhere or directly powering cameras and other devices, I need portable power. I usually use my lipo batteries, USB batteries, and more recently the Novoo AC power bank, but these aren’t the only options.
In this video, Jay P Morgan at The Slanted Lens looks at a range of products from IndiPro that allow you to get all kinds of different power options when shooting on location.
If your drone’s battery runs out while it’s flying above water, you’re screwed, right? Well, a man named Dave Svorking managed to save his drone a split second before it hit the water surface. And the best of all is – this spectacular rescue was captured by the drone and you can see it in the video below.
