Adstoppi Blog | DJI appears to be making its first FPV racing drone

Published by:


DJI appears to be readying the release of a first-person-view (FPV) drone, according to FCC filings spotted by DroneDJ. Three products — a “DJI FPV Air Unit,” “DJI FPV Remote Controller,” and “DJI FPV Goggles” — were recently registered with the government agency.

DJI has dabbled with FPV drones in the past. The company released a PlayStation VR-sized headset dubbed DJI Goggles in 2017 that worked with a few different DJI drones. But that somewhat clunky solution was about as far as the Chinese company ever went with the idea.

Meanwhile, an “FPV air unit” with dedicated goggles and a controller sounds more like a drone built for racing, or at the very least, high maneuverability. It would make sense; DJI is far-and-away the leader in consumer drones, and has seen competition like GoPro, 3D Robotics, and recently, Parrot walk away from the market (to varying degrees). But DJI doesn’t have a drone that’s tailor-made for the growing drone racing / FPV slice of the market, which mostly consists of custom-built drones that are made from off-the-shelf parts.

Not only are drone racing competitions and leagues popping up left and right these days, there’s also a boom in demand in the videography world for FPV drones. Talented FPV drone pilots are putting their skills to work doing everything from going viral, to shooting Formula Drift, to making Kohl’s commercials. Designing a product that makes it easier to tap into this trend makes sense, especially with DJI’s expertise in creating small cameras and drones capable of capturing high-quality footage.

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that FPV drones tend to crash a lot. They move a lot faster, and can be harder to control, and pilots don’t often have access to assists like GPS lock or automatic hovering. A big reason why FPV drones often get cobbled together from off-the-shelf parts is because that makes it easier to fix them when they crash. How DJI compensates for this will be something to look for if and when the drone gets released.

Detective Pikachu, the live-action mystery movie from director Rob Letterman and Warner Bros. Pictures, has surpassed Duncan Jones’ Warcraft as the highest-grossing video game film of all time with $436 million in worldwide ticket sales. Warcraft, produced by Legendary Pictures (the same company that made Detective Pikachu) and based on the Blizzard Entertainment fantasy franchise, was the previous record-holder since 2016, when it ousted Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time with its $433 million worldwide gross. Warcraft’s success at the time was largely thanks to an enormous marketing campaign in China that translated to then-record overseas ticket sales. However, neither of those films came close to Detective Pikachu’s critical reception. Not only is the film — starring Justice...

Elon Musk’s Neuralink, the secretive company developing brain-machine interfaces, showed off some of the technology it has been developing to the public for the first time. The goal is to eventually begin implanting devices in paralyzed humans, allowing them to control phones or computers. The first big advance is flexible “threads,” which are less likely to damage the brain than the materials currently used in brain-machine interfaces. These threads also create the possibility of transferring a higher volume of data, according to a white paper credited to “Elon Musk & Neuralink.” The abstract notes that the system could include “as many as 3,072 electrodes per array distributed across 96 threads.” The threads are 4 to 6 ?m in width, which makes them considerably thinner...

Tips For Business Development

Business decisions are frequently driven by relationships. Leveraging these connections to secure work, also called business growth, is both an art and a science. Building meaningful connections needs a strong investment of money and time, connections will see through pushy sales efforts and one sided connections which offer nothing in their favor.

You've uncle a grandfather, or even a brother that went to serve. A few of those veterans still suffer now from a post-traumatic stress disorder and suffered. Back then was not even a diagnosis for post-traumatic stress disorder, or it did not have a name and wasn't a thing that is known if there was. Even though they could not differentiate themselves what they experienced A lot of them turned to self-medicate. They wake up in the center of the night or cannot sleep at all. They turn to their fix - their just source of relaxation and just way of easing the pain. The simple fact that many of these veterans were groomed to believe that emotions or showing emotion were an indicator of weakness chemicals an issue today that experts are seeing.

Difference Between Lawyer And Attorney

Published by:

- John, Tuscumbia, AL - A: Traditionally, families would have a lawyer or law firm that they would consult with for their legal affairs. Most lawyers can handle routine matters, but just like doctors, others truly are specialists within the law. The best example is that of Englands legal system which is divided between lawyers that handle routine legal matters known as solicitors and barristers which are those lawyers who actually try cases to juries. England recognizes that the ability to try a case before a jury is a specialty at law that many lawyers have no desire to engage in. Some attorneys are uncomfortable trying jury trials, but are competent in different areas of the law. A counselor at law that handles matters may well not be convinced that they're the best attorney to handle a...

The unveiling of Tesla's Cybertruck last week was full of surprises, but none more shocking than the moment when lead designer Franz von Holzhausen smashed two of the vehicle's "armor glass" windows onstage with a metal ball. It certainly wasn't the result CEO Elon Musk was expecting, who could be heard muttered "oh my fucking god" under his breath before being forced to complete his presentation in front of the fractured panes. But Musk says he knows what went wrong, and explained things on Twitter. Right before the metal ball test, von Holzhausen smacked the door with a sledgehammer on stage to prove its durability (and unlike the glass, it was fine), and Musk says this impact "cracked base of glass," which is why the windows subsequently smashed when hit by the ball. This seems...

Most political press conferences can be sort of a bore, but during last week’s live-streamed presser by Pakistani regional minister Shaukat Yousafzai, the event attracted international attention for all the wrong reasons. While Yousafzai addressed the public in his weekly conference, a volunteer on the team accidentally activated the cat filter on Facebook Live, causing the minister to appear with digital cat ears, whiskers, and rosy cheeks. Even though live viewers noticed the gaffe and tried to alert the office in the comments, the stream continued for several minutes with the filter on, which also added the effect to two officials beside Yousafzai. The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, which hosted the stream, deleted the video shortly after the conference wrapped. On its...

Stan Lee, Marvel Comics visionary, dead at 95

Published by:

(CNN) Stan Lee, the colorful Marvel Comics patriarch who helped usher in a new era of superhero storytelling -- and saw his creations become a giant influence in the movie business -- has died. He was 95. Kirk Schneck, an attorney for Lee's daughter, tells CNN the comic giant was taken by ambulance from his Los Angeles home on Monday morning to Cedar's Sinai Medical Center, where he later died. The cause of death is not yet known, according to Schneck. Lee began his career at what was then Timely Comics in 1939. Over the years he was a writer, editor, and occasional illustrator. But, bored with the output, he was preparing to leave the company when history took a sudden turn. For many years, the business had been dominated by DC (then National) Comics, creators of Superman, Batman, Wonder...

Most people who spend money on car-sharing services do so because they have a destination in mind. They need transportation, and driving a car is an incredibly popular and efficient method of travel between two locations. (It’s true!) But occasionally, a car is not a mode of travel, but an indoor space in a world where indoor spaces are increasingly privatized and inaccessible to many people. Japanese car-sharing service Orix discovered this recently after finding out that many of its customers were renting its cars but not driving them. As reported by The Asahi Shimbun, the company reviewed mileage records and learned that a certain number of its vehicles were being returned after having “traveled no distance.” Times24 Co., a leading automobile-sharing service provider with more...
