Moment, a company known for making add-on lenses for smartphones, is expanding its product line to include an anamorphic lens for DJI drones. The company launched a Kickstarter campaign for the lens, that will clip to the existing camera installed on DJI Mavic 2 Pro or Mavic 2 Zoom aircraft, allowing the camera to capture a wider field of view and has the capability to add cinematic lens flares to videos captured by the drones. Moment says it was able to fly a Mavic 2 Pro drone in heavy winds with the lens attached with no effect on the aircraft's performance. Skymagic designed and delivered a drone light show at this year's Zurich Festival, performing over the weekend in front of over a million spectators.

A strategic partnership between Volans-i and Hogfish Ventures company Fli Drone to provide on-demand drone delivery services in The Bahamas recently resulted in the successful completion of the first long-range UAV delivery in The Bahamas on June 18.

Despite the fact we have the largest news staff on the ground at AirVenture, our nearly 30 staffers still aren’t enough to find out what’s ‘really cool’ because what’s really cool is not all about us or what we think, it’s about what the thousands of people think who attend this great adventure known as AirVenture.
