DJI FPV Combo drone unboxing bares all before official launch

DJI FPV Combo drone unboxing bares all before official launch

DJI seems to have a leak problem so bad that you might begin to wonder if it's an intentional marketing ploy instead. After all, it's one thing to have photos and anonymous hands-on videos running around the Web and quite another when people can just walk into a retail store and buy one ahead of a new model's official announcement. It seems that DJI's first-ever FPV or First-Person View drone is no exception with an unboxing video now circulating a month before it officially takes to the skies.

DJI launches new flyaway protection for Mavic Air 2 and Mini 2

A long time ago, when drones were first coming on the market, it wasn't uncommon at all for them to suddenly stop responding and simply fly away. As expensive as drones can be, this is a big problem as often they travel so far that it's impossible to find them. This problem is much less common today, but as expensive as drones from DJI are, it's nice to have protection in the event that does happen.

DJI to continue selling drones in the US despite blacklist

DJI to continue selling drones in the US despite blacklist

The year is far from over and, as far as the current US government is concerned, there is still plenty of time for actions that have long-lasting effects. One of those is expanding the US' notorious "Entity List" to include not just SMIC, China's largest chipmaker, but also, surprisingly, popular drone company DJI. That said, the latter was already rumored to be on the country's hit list, giving it time to make a bold response assuring customers in the country that they will still be able to buy DJI's products as normal.

Today the United States Commerce Department added the drone company DJI to their trade restrictions blacklist. More specifically, this is the U.S. Commerce Department Entity List, making DJI subject to Export Administration Regulations (EAR).

DJI FPV racing drone, goggles and controller appear in new images

We've been hearing about an alleged DJI FPV racing drone for more than a year now, one that will reportedly include goggles so that users can pilot the drone in a more precise way.

DJI event sure to bring Mavic and/or Mini action this week

DJI event sure to bring Mavic and/or Mini action this week

Today DJI revealed that they'd be running an event this week where they'll reveal a new drone. Part of the event seems to be focused on the DJI Store APP, which is available for Android and iOS devices now. The image used for this event is... not helpful. It features three boys holding an oversized paper airplane, walking in a desert near a sign that says DON'T PANIC. That's almost certainly a reference to the Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, which also features the words DON'T PANIC printed in large bold letters on its front.
