DroneRise – DJI Mavic 2 expected to be shown on August 23rd and $800 million Pentagon contract

Good morning, finally we have a new date from DJI to look forward to! On August 23rd at 10 am in the NY area, DJI will host an event to almost certainly introduce the DJI Mavic 2 Pro and Zoom models. Hopefully, DJI has had enough time to build up their inventories so that the orders can be placed right away and shipping will take place soon after as many people are eager to get their hands on these new drones. With that, here are yesterday’s headlines and also a very nice video from Greece. Definitely worth checking out!
