DJI Spark leaked – FPV Racer

The latest DJI drone the DJI Spark has been leaked. The drone will be even smaller than a mavic pro and will be oriented towards FPV racing. Everything we know about the leaked DJI Spark is available below. DJI Spark Features We expect the following features on the DJI Spark: Compact size, yet arms will not be foldable. Foldable propellers Contacts on the bottom of the body will allow charging without removing the battery 15 minute flight time 2 axis gimbal What do these specs mean? The DJI Spark is a bit different from the other offerings from DJI currently. Other drones primary focus in the consumer spaces are aerial video/photography. The Spark will be the first drone in this FPV racing space from the Phantom creator. An FPV racer of course doesn’t need a 3 axis gimbal as you want to see the exact attitude that the drone is in on your display or goggles. Interestingly we have been waiting for the official release of the DJI goggles which we have seen before. The Chrystal branded Displays may also see a release date near the Spark and Goggles. DJI Spark Release Date We expect a release in 2017. The Spark may be out in the next few months.   stay tuned as we update this article. Don’t miss out on drone news such as this!

New DJI Inspire 2 Black leaked & other products

A new DJI Inspire 2 Black has been leaked! DJI is attending the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. They left us with the image below teasing with a new Inspire 2 Black. The conference starts on the 27th (next week), stay tuned for updates on this rumored Inspire 2 Black and other products!   Inspire 2 Pro Black One realistic possibility, based on the image above, is a new Inspire 2 Pro Black Edition. If we compare the Inspire 2 motor to the image above we see similarities.   (Inspire 2 vs leaked image of rumored Inspire 2 Black) Top and bottom motor cooling slots appear to be identical Status Indicator LED appears to be the same size without the gray dual colored finish Another Difference: The propeller doesn’t seem to feature a quick-release connection as featured on the Inspire 2 The Inspire 1 Black was released 4 months after the X5 camera was announced. This timeframe could fit for an Inspire 2 Black release. One could argue that the area just below the LED appears to be different, but this could just be a difference of the angle that the photographs were taken.   A new Matrice Drone? The change to the quick-release prop adapter is a larger difference and may be a reason that rumors of a new Matrice Platform could adopt the Inspire 2 style motors. The Matrice 100 features propellers similar to the ones in the leaked image. A new drone such as a new Matrice would be more exciting than just an Inspire 2 black but let’s see what will be announced.   A complete FPV Racer? DJI just posted a new video showcasing their FPV Racing technology “Snail“, the Takyon ESC’s and new racing propellers. Perhaps we will see a complete Drone being launched showcasing this new platform!   Don’t forget the Mobile World Congress starts next week, sign up to our newsletter below to not miss out on any...

DJI Mavic Pro Accessories – Everything you need to know

DJI Mavic Pro Accessories – Everything you need to know

The Mavic Pro from DJI has been out for a few months now. DJI frequently releases new accessories for the Mavic Pro. This page is updated when new accessories are available, so be sure to check back often. Now check out the newest accessories for the DJI Mavic Pro!   DJI Mavic Accessories The newest items are at the top of the page. We’ve also included replacement items, so you can easily find items such as the Gimbal Cover. Just in case you lose or scratch yours, or you want to modify one. Mavic ND Filters (Mavic Pro ND Filter Set) ND or Neutral Density filters reduce the amount of light that enters the lens of the Mavic’s camera. Why would you want this? In bright conditions, the Mavic will be forced to use super quick shutter speeds, which is the opposite of what you want. For smooth cinematic footage, you should normally double your framerate (fps) as your shutter speed. When the sun is out during the day this is impossible, therefore Video-, Foto- and Cinematographers rely on ND filters. They reduce each color the same amount so there aren’t any adverse color shifts when filming with them. The filters snap onto the provided grooves on your Mavic’s camera lens. Normally you have to purchase each filter separately, but DJI offers this affordable Mavic ND Filter Combo Set. Mavic Remote Control Sunshade (Mavic Sunshade) Ever fly your Mavic and wish you could actually see what was displayed on your smartphone? This Mavic Sunshade for your Remote Control is for you. It features a magnetic flap which allows you to either fold the flap up to allow greater visibility of the built-in LCD screen; or fold it down for even more glare reducing goodness. You slip the antennas of your Mavic remote control into the provided antenna tubes. Finally, an accessory which also sets up the antennas perfectly for you! More details on the Sunshade here. Mavic Battery (Mavic Battery) Additional batteries allow you to stay in the air longer. Don’t let that perfect shot or sequence get ruined by running out of juice. Having at least 3-4 batteries allows for flexibility between filming and having to find place & time to charge. The official Mavic batteries can be found here. Mavic Car Charger (Mavic Car Charger) Speaking of charging your Mavic’s batteries while being on-the-go. The Mavic Car Charger allows you to charge the batteries and the remote control when you have a 12V socket available to you. Charging a battery takes around 55min for a full charge. Low-voltage protection ensures that your vehicle will be able to start...
