Drone films ASDA supermarket fire at London Luton Airport

Two days and two chances to look at Drone No Fly Zone maps. This time a Luton based DJI Mavic owner bumps up against a DJI No Fly Zone around London Luton Airport, and the Mavic wants to auto-land in response. A positive thing, the technology worked, well done DJI. The operator was flying to film at a fire at an ASDA grocery store. My question … Continue reading Drone films ASDA supermarket fire at London Luton Airport

DJI Phantom 4 next on the chopping block?

On 14 January Gary noticed that DJI had removed the Phantom 3 Advanced, Pro and 4K variants of the Phantom range from their online store.

Farewell Phantom 3 Pro, DJI discontinue some of Phantom range

The Phantom 3 Pro and Advanced have been removed from DJI’s store. For a little while the P3P represented the best bang for buck in the Phantom range. It has been my recommendation when asked, since the Phantom 4 was released. Great performance and able to do everything the Phantom 4 Pro could for half the price (almost). Arriving in the marketplace in early 2015, … Continue reading Farewell Phantom 3 Pro, DJI discontinue some of Phantom range

Print your own DJI MAVIC

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery. 3D printing enthusiast Musa Wilmar has a free DJI Mavic frame clone and build at Indestructibles. It is not entirely faithful but should impress friends and family! I wondered what the cost might look like so took to the back of a digital beer mat and did the sums. Not sure what flight controller he is using, but … Continue reading Print your own DJI MAVIC

Dear Nick, about those GoPro Karma 2 specifications

Well done for trying again with Karma, I saw that you had a chat with Ben Popper from The Verge. He wrote that you said: “Of course. The reception for Karma was very strong. It was unfortunate about the recall, but what we learned was that our existing customers and new customers are really excited about Karma’s value proposition. It means that the foundation has been laid … Continue reading Dear Nick, about those GoPro Karma 2 specifications

GoPro’s recalled Karma drone to relaunch in 2017

So the information fairies were right when they told us back in December that GoPro was trying again with Karma. Quite how much trust the fickle drone market has in the product cannot be judged. The technically superior DJI Mavic is beginning to arrive in numbers now. GoPro has perhaps missed the boat. Christmas is the most important drone sales window. Mavic has a better camera … Continue reading GoPro’s recalled Karma drone to relaunch in 2017
