DroneRise – contraband, Royal Wedding, No-Fly Zones and the White Sands National Monument

Good morning, here are yesterday’s headlines with news about a drone with contraband, the Royal Wedding, and drone detection systems, No-Fly Zones around three military bases and a deal on a refurbished Yuneec drone. Lastly, we have a wonderful drone video of the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. Enjoy!

Today’s video

We also have a short but sweet drone video clip of the White Sands National Monument in New Mexico. That landscape under a rising sun looks out of this world. The drone footage was produced by aerial drone production company Cavort Air. Beautiful! Enjoy!

If you have a drone film that you would like to show on DroneDJ, send us an email with a link to your video on YouTube or Vimeo and provide us some background info.
