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.
Drones play a key role in documenting crime scenes, finding missing persons, and assisting with other routine problems at the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office in Florida.
Last week Canadian police were able to find a missing Lethbridge man with a DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise drone.
On April 4th, a massive wildfire broke out in the forests around the Chernobyl exclusion zone, almost exactly 34 years after the meltdown of reactor four in April 1986. A fleet of 10 unmanned aircraft including two DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual drones were deployed to help fight the wildfires. Insights gained from thermal drone imagery helped firefighters extinguish the fire that posed a threat to local communities.
This is a really nice story. The Wyckoff Police in New Jersey, use drones for good with their highly successful Birthday Drive-By program. Based on the number of videos they have shared on Facebook, it seems that they just recently started this program, meanwhile that have over 70 Birthday Drive-By’s more scheduled! As you can imagine the kids really love it!
