    DJI Product Launch – Learn to Win Event

    Breaking News: DJI to launch new Product on June 11th 2019. The Event is the “Learn to Win” Launch Event by DJI. In this article, you will learn about the Rumors & Leaks regarding this Learn to Win product launch from DJI.   Learn To Win – Launch Event Analysis: DJI Learn To Win – Launch Event RUMORS & LEAKS [4K] Watch this video on YouTube.   The new DJI Robomaster S1 will be available under this link: DJI Robomaster S1 Link What we know about the DJI Learn to Win Event: We are expecting a new product to be released at 10:30PM EDT (New York Time) on June 11th 2019. This DJI release has been kept more secretive than any launch to date, there are however plenty of hints, which you can view in the video above or in the article below. Not a DJI Spark 2: While some sources claim it to be a Spark 2, I am very skeptical. During the video, you can see various angles of the new DJI Product. One glimpse shows multiple wires with connectors going into the device. This shot alone essentially proves it is not a Spark 2, or at least a Spark 2 as we would think of it. Check out the trailer here:   Here is the image with the wires I was mentioning earlier:   DJI has as a matter of fact sold Robomaster Series parts on their own site for a while now.

    Purdue University & Indiana State University drone program – Unmanned Aerial Systems

    Many Universities are expanding their curriculum to include a Drone Program or Unmanned Aerial Systems fields of study. Purdue & Indiana State University are amongst these Universities. As a matter of fact, Indiana State University was the first University in the Midwest to offer a Drone Program. During a recent MeetUp, students of a local Indiana High School experienced the DJI Mavic Air, Phantom 4 Pro and Inspire 2. They also learned about the expanding drone industry. Representatives from the Purdue Foundry & Indiana States faculty were on Site. “We’re trying to connect those resources. We’ve got great academic resources here ISU, IU, Purdue. Unfortunately, a lot of that engineering, scientific talent, leaves the state. So we want to create more opportunity here.” – Purdue Foundry Director Jason Salstrom Indiana State University offers a B.S. in Unmanned Systems but also a minor in UMS. Purdue also offers a Major in Unmanned Aerial Systems. “Indiana realizes that there is a commercial opportunity out there. Commercial applications for unmanned systems is about to take off.” – Mike Collins Please Support QuadcopterGuide If you’d like to stay up to date with all the latest drone/gimbal news, rumors, and reviews, then follow us on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or sign up for our email newsletter.

    New FAA Registration Info & Rules – How do I register my drone?
    Mar04

    New FAA Registration Info & Rules – How do I register my drone?

    New FAA rules require all drones (over 250 grams) in the U.S. to display the FAA registration number on the outside of the drone. Until now this registration information could be labeled inside of battery compartments for example. FAA Rule requiring Registration Information visible on the outside of your drone The FAA claims Good Cause for Immediate Adoption based on a few arguments. One being that Members of law enforcement have expressed concerns that the old rule of just placing the label anywhere on the drone, including inside the battery compartment, presents “an imminent risk of harm to first responders”. It is claimed that when responding to security incidents involving drones, first responders attempt to identify the owner/operator. Of course, one way of doing this is to figure out who this person is based on the FAA registration information on the label. This requires law enforcement personnel to physically handle the drone and in some cases open compartments. This poses “an unnecessary safety and security risk” to those individuals, as well as others in the immediate vicinity of the drone, due to potential concealment of explosive devices in compartments, including battery compartments. This new rule requiring placing the registration number on the external surface of the aircraft assists in mitigating this risk, as the drone doesn’t have to be handled. The FAA had planned to implement this rule after receiving feedback from Law Enforcement Agencies in 2016 and 2017 but was not able to implement the rule immediately. One reason for this was the litigation challenging the applicability of the entire Registration process for model aircraft (section 336 of Public Law 112-95). The uncertainty was resolved when the registration requirement was signed into law on December 12, 2017. Due to the “Good Cause for Immediate Adoption” the Rule becomes effective 10 days from publication -> (Feb 25, 2019). You have until March 15th, 2019 to comment on the new Ruling. You may do so here.   US Registration Requirements How do I register my drone? It’s pretty simple, follow these steps: If you are flying a drone in the U.S. that weighs more than 0.55lbs (250 grams) it must be registered. You can do that by visiting faadronezone.faa.gov Review the rules: Recreational/Hobby or Commercial Mark your aircraft. The good news is you have several options: Engraving the registration number Using a permanent label, from say a label maker Using a permanent marker to visibly and permanently write your registration info on the exterior of your drone STAY IN TOUCH!
