Pulling Out All The Stops: DJI's FPV Drone Promises Extensive Capabilities

Features An ADS-B Receiver System

DJI has launched a new type of drone -- an FPV drone that combines the first-person view and performance of racing drones, the camera capabilties of traditional drones, and an optional innovative single-handed motion controller that allows pilots to control the drone with just hand movements. The DJI FPV ecosystem includes the drone, goggles, a dedicated remote controller, and a new intuitive motion controller option that steers the drone based on the movement of your hand. The drone features high-performance motors for incredible speeds, an intuitive user interface and the latest safety features for greater control. The new FPV system lets pilots see from the drone's perspective in low-latency high definition thanks to O3, the third iteration of DJI's OcuSync technology. It can capture smooth and stable 4K video at 60 fps with the assistance of RockSteady electronic image stabilization.

Airborne 03.01.21: ERAU e-Plane, Flying Leatherneck, Citation Excel Upgrade

Also: FAA Vaccine Update, New Glenn Schedule, Collier Trophy Nominees, Van’s Aircraft

After nearly four years of perseverance, the Embry-Riddle's Eagle Flight Research Center (EFRC) team is celebrating a milestone in its electric propulsion research: its Diamond HK-36 completed a successful taxi test exclusively on electrical power. Dubbed the eSpirit of St. Louis — in honor of Charles Lindbergh’s notion of balance between aviation and the environment — the aircraft serves as a testbed for students to gain experience on the interdisciplinary aspects of mixing electrical engineering skills with aerospace engineering. On April 1, 2021, the United States Marine Corps intends to permanently close MCAS Miramar’s Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum. The future of the artifacts, research library, and aircraft, which belong to the Marine Corps, is unknown. We have been told th

Bearhawk Aircraft Announces Model B First Flights

One Bearhawk Model B Was Completed In Under One Year

Bearhawk Aircraft announced two first flights of Bearhawk Model B aircraft in Idaho and California. The Bearhawk Model B is a 4-Place aircraft designed by engineer Bob Barrows. The Idaho-based Bearhawk Model B was completed in under one year by Brent Huddleston, a short timeframe considering he’s a first-time aircraft builder. Brent says his new Bearhawk has more performance than his previous O-470-powered Cessna 182Q. He had never flown a taildragger, but this did not deter him from comparing the Bearhawk to others in his search for a kit. In the end, according to Brent, “The Bearhawk was the fastest, had the best specs, big doors, and, by comparison, the 182 was too small for even my dog.”

Airborne-Special Edition 02.11.21: Aviation Safety Resources' Larry Williams

Also: Next-Gen Airplane Parachutes, Lighter, Smaller, and More Cost-Effective, Coming Soon

ANN’s Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell has an interesting background as a test pilot... But one of the most exciting programs he was part of …..was flying and testing the first early generation of emergency airframe parachute systems on several different Cessnas, while working with two separate development programs. The technology has progressed so much since then, but the next generation of airframe recovery parachute systems is undergoing preparation for the civilian market and beyond... promising better/lighter materials, small sizes, and lower costs. Our Editor-In-Chief Jim Campbell interviewed Aviation Safety Resources’ CEO and President Larry Williams to get the inside scoop on what we’ll be seeing from ASR in the very near future -- and take our words for it, ASR seems ready to sh

Hartzell STC's Voyager Prop for Cessna 180/182/185/206

Builds On Backcountry Acceptance of Skywagon/AgCarryall Prop

Hartzell has expanded the eligibility of its popular three-blade aluminum Voyager props. The Voyager is now STC approved for the large fleet of Cessna 180/182/185/206 aircraft, powered by Continental 520 and 550 engines. The Voyager, which has reportedly been well received by bush pilots, was previously approved for Cessna's A185E/F Skywagon and AgCarryall aircraft. "Inspired by enthusiastic customer acceptance since we introduced the Voyager in 2019, we decided to make it available to a much broader fleet," said Hartzell Propeller President JJ Frigge (pictured). "We are also excited to partner with the Recreational Aviation Foundation (RAF) to offer its members a $1,000 discount off the regular price from now until the end of 2022."

FAA Selects Five Host Airports to Test-Evaluate UAV Detection and Mitigation

"Research Will Lead To The Implementation Of New Technologies That Will Make Airports Safer"

The FAA has selected five host airports to evaluate technologies and systems that could detect and mitigate potential safety risks posed by unmanned aircraft. The effort is part of the agency’s Airport Unmanned Aircraft Systems Detection and Mitigation Research Program. These airports meet FAA requirements for diverse testing environments and represent airport operating conditions found across the United States. The research will lead to the implementation of new technologies that will make airports safer for passengers and manned aircraft. Researchers plan to test and evaluate at least 10 technologies or systems at these airports. Testing will begin later this year and continue through 2023. It will create standards for future unmanned aircraft detection and mitigation technologies at airports around the country.
