DroneRise – drones used by police, Apple Park, Hasselblad and an Iranian drone

Good morning, We have some exciting news. Yesterday, DroneDJ was officially accepted to the Google News section, which is kind of a big deal for us as it means recognition for our hard work. More importantly, however, this means that more people will be able to find our articles and it will be easier for Android users to access our information. So we are pretty excited about this! Now let’s get back to drone news.

 Yesterday’s headlines

Today’s video

For today’s video, we are back in Iceland. Grab a coffee and check out these amazing images by Stan Moniz Photography.

“ICELAND OR BUST! I was on the island of fire and ice for literally no more then 48 hours. Most of the first day was a throw away due to some of the craziest weather EVER! It was one of the biggest snow storms the island has seen in more than five years! However, I was lucky enough that it cleared up long enough for me to launch the Mavic Air to create a photo / video short film capturing some of that amazing Icelandic scenery that we all know and love.”

“I can’t believe I captured all of this content in just under five hours. In my opinion, the Mavic Air combined with the PolarPro Vivid filter collection is 100% worth getting! YES there is most likely a Mavic Pro II coming out very soon. But I’m sure it can’t beat how travel light this puppy is. And let me tell you, the 4k @ 100mps is pretty darn sweet!!!”

What is DroneRise?

Every weekday morning at 6am sharp we will post a short re-cap of yesterday’s drone news. We will also include a video that shows the amazing footage that a drone and a capable drone pilot (and video editor) can produce.
