Our friends at the FAI tell us they are in discussions with Hong Kong-based Adventure Air Race Company limited, regarding the development of an air race series to replace the discontinued and long-lamented Red Bull Air Race championship.

Adventure Air Race reportedly has the endorsement of Red Bull for this project, which will be called the World Championship Air Race. Adventure Air Race reached out to the FAI to discuss the provision of safety officers and other technical support for the WCAR. This support is being coordinated through and with the assistance of the FAI Aerobatics Commission (CIVA). DJI has launched the DJI Mini 2, a high-performance camera drone that packs a number of new features into a small, portable design weighing less than 249 grams. The successor to DJI’s original Mavic Mini, DJI Mini 2 is reportedly easy to fly, with improved imaging capabilities, flight performance, and significantly enhanced transmission technology. Intelligent, pre-programmed modes have been optimized so that you can capture eye-catching footage with just a few taps while beginner tutorials and learning tools help get new pilots up to speed on how to fly this fun new drone. ocket lab is going to try and do something we all know SpaceX is good at, re-using parts of a rocket... Rocket Lab has confirmed that it will attempt to recover the first stage of its Electron rocket during its next mission, the ‘Return to Sender’ launch, scheduled for lift-off in mid-November. The test will see Rocket Lab attempt to bring Electron’s first stage back to Earth under a parachute system for a controlled water landing before collection by a recovery vessel. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
