DroneRise – NYCDFF, Mavic Pro, Mavic Pro II, bird, Inspire 3

Good morning, We have had a busy weekend with the NYC Drone Film Festival. Lot’s of interesting stuff on Saturday afternoon and of course the highlight of the event, the drone films showcased during the evening program. See some of our favorites here. On Sunday we went to the Liberty Science Center in NJ to take part in the second day of the event. We spoke with people from Parrot, Autel Robotics, RED, and Skydio. We will have more news to share in the coming days as well as to work on our review of the R1 drone. I had a chance to fly it today and its obstacle avoidance is on a different level altogether.

Today’s video

Today’s video from Shredbots is one of the best, if not the best, snowboarding video I have ever seen. if you ever wanted to be part of the action, well then watch this video and you are right there with the athletes shredding through the powder and spinning through the air. The Skydio R1 can follow you and film you on your snowboard, but I’  not sure it can follow you quite like this! Get a coffee and enjoy!
