We had heard it was coming. We knew it was coming. We had seen some leaked photos and a teaser video from DJI. Well, as of today we can very sure the DJI FPV drone is coming as these leaked photos confirm. Check it out!
DJI started counting and tracking the number of people whose lives have been saved with the help of drones some time ago. As of October 11th, DJI concludes that at least 500 people have been rescued by drones worldwide. This new milestone underscores the importance of drones to our societies and showcases why every team of first responders should have a thermal drone at their disposal. Cost of a basic thermal drone: $3,500. 500 lives saved by drones: Priceless!

Flying drones is the safest form of aviation there is, claims DJI, based on an analysis of public data on flight hours and reported incidents. In the past year alone, millions of flying hours were made with recreational drones, resulting in zero deaths. DJI, therefore, believes that the regulations should not be made much stricter.
Just now, leaked photos surfaced on Twitter, showing a new camera possibly on a DJI Mavic 3 drone. Or at least that’s what the tweet would like us to think. However, there’s also a good chance that this is not a DJI Mavic 3 at all, but an older prototype of the DJI Mavic 2. Let’s take a closer look.
At the end of 2019, DJI introduced the Mavic Mini, the first full-fledged camera drone weighing less than 250 grams. With the successor the DJI Mini 2, the Chinese dronemaker has retained all the right things from the first generation Mavic Mini and has made significant improvements on a number of fronts. As a result, the DJI Mini 2 is not only intended for novice drone pilots: especially after the introduction of European drone regulations, the Mini 2 is also interesting for professionals.
Dronemaker DJI says it is investigating whether it is possible to provide drones with a Cx CE label retroactively. Such a label will be mandatory in Europe after January 1, 2023, to fly in Open subcategories A1 and A2. As part of the procedure, customers would have to take their drone to a DJI service center to either have their drone upgraded or a self-performed upgrade checked.
The DJI Mini 2 is an awesome little drone that is featherlight but as a result, lacks some noticeable features found on other DJI drones such as obstacle avoidance and DJI’s ActiveTrack. However, if you use the QuickShots on the DJI Mini 2, you can actually trick the drone into actively tracking you.

A drone pilot from Israel was recently flying his new DJI Mavic Air 2 when something very special happened. A flock of migrating pelicans approached from a distance.

An image of what appears to be a prototype zoom lens for DJI’s Zenmuse X7 camera has surfaced on Twitter. This camera is compatible with the Inspire 2 and is especially valued by high-end filmmakers and photographers because of the excellent image quality provided by the 35 mm sensor. Currently, there are only fixed focal length lenses, also known as prime lenses, available for the Zenmuse X7 camera. A zoom lens would be a welcome addition to the line-up.
