  1. I don't know if it's real or fake but either way, for me, it ranks right up there with the cat hanging from a ceiling fan and lighting farts on fire. I'm sure the guys has already crashed it by now and called DJI tech support. It would be more interesting listening in on that conversation.

  2. I personally think it's real, but it goes to say how did Best Buy mess up the timing for that? Do those types of stores get that much of early access to products that aren't even announced/released? Definitely an interesting situation. DroneDJ had an article or two about this, plus the review of the Mavic Mini 2. I honestly don't think it's too worth it based upon the stats (probably because I already have a Mavic Mini and don't personally need 4k video), but I've yet to see any significant changes. Just my thoughts. Here's the DroneDj article. https://dronedj.com/2020/10/26/dji-mavic-min

  3. Hello, I’ve recently started a disaster response initiative within my company at Charter Communications using drones and small radios, providing aerial wireless coverage. I currently fly a DJI Matrice 600 Pro with custom made brackets for the tethering and radio equipment that attaches to it. I’m also Part 107 certified with over 100 hours of flying time. I would like to be part of your beta program. I feel I could provide valuable feedback for your new drone program. Thank you, Matt Hubbard Charter Wireless R&D

  4. Hiya, My wife got the Tello for me as a birthday present. Being my first "real" (?) drone, I have nothing to compare it to. I owned a toy from Best Buy some years ago that was fun, but was strictly a toy. That being said, I'm really excited to start this hobby. The Tello is super user-friendly and safe. Like a real pilot does, I have taken to logbook entries to document the time and journey. I would love to eventually get more serious with this and go for a 107 license! --M

  5. Only a few aerial shots. I used a Mavic2Pro but screwed up the settings. My fault but it would have been nice to know before downloading the footage.

  6. Hello Benjamin, Yes I would be interested in learning more about beta testing your HAMR drone. My company is Pixel Magic and we specialize in 3D CGI visual effects for TV and feature films. Most recently I just completed Raised By Wolves for HBOMAX. We use drones to create very high end photogrammetry that we then create 3D models for integration into films and tv programs. We also shoot high quality video for tv and movies. We have Part 107 experience and multi engine instrument rated fixed wing experience. You can reach me at raymond@pixelmagicfx.com. We are based

  8. @Av8Chuck Awesome information! Thanks so much. I’ll definitely talk to my firefighter friends about this and see their point of view!

  9. Government initiatives like these like to take credit and issue press releases to brag about it. I don’t believe this campaign had much to do with changing the behavior of drone pilots. We have worked with a lot of fire departments, a couple of years ago if a drone appeared anywhere near airborne operations they would shut them down. After two highly publicized midair collisions between helicopters and drones put the risk into perspective many incidence commanders have (unofficially) relaxed their zero tolerance drone policies they’re using their own judgements to make decisions.

  10. I think this is really interesting. Do the firefighters or other personnel involved have a way of identifying what type of drones also enter these areas? I'm assuming a good majority would be DJI due to their grasp of the industry, but could it be lower end models or higher end?

  11. The Mavic Mini has FlySafe and is restricted by geo fencing, I live on a military base and can't even fly it in my own house due to this, as in I can not physically take off due to the GPS signal in the house. So you can't just fly it whereever you want, and you can't turn this off at all, there is no manual ATTI mode. There is a tinfoil hack, but you lose stability without GPS. As far as Part 107 licensing in order to profit from using the mini you would still be required to get licensed, just not have to register it with the FAA. I have been researching Part 107 licensing and one site sp
