AMA Drone Report 01.23.20: DJI Phantom ReIntro, Autel Evo II, EAA v RID

Also: Drone Test Site Program, FoxFury D3060, Airbus eVTOL Vahana, Super Bowl TFR

The DJI Phantom line of drones, considered by some to be the industry standard, vanished from store shelves about 14 months ago. At the time, DJI cited a "parts shortage" that prevented it from manufacturing new Phantom drones. Well, the Phantom 4 Pro is back. DJI posted a statement saying that the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 is again available for purchase as of January 6, 2020. A new drone from Autel Robotics was introduced at CES 2020 in Las Vegas. The 8K Autel Evo II is billed as a potential "Mavic Killer" by the company. Autel Robotics says that the Evo II will have a standard 7100mAh battery that provides up to 40 minutes of flight time in forward motion or 35 minutes in hover. The drone can be controlled at a range of up to 4.8 nautical miles, and has a dozen computer vision sensors controlled by a dual-core processor

Airborne 01.17.20: A/C Registration Warning, iFly GPS Update, Boeing's Net Loss

Also: NBAA Updates Jet Resource, New Virgin Galactic COO, Heathrow Anti-Drone System, Gogo And Hispasat Deal

EAA is warning the aviation community to regard any solicitation they may receive regarding aircraft  registration renewal, especially those that call for using a search engine to find the registration site, with a healthy dose of suspicion. EAA has become aware of several businesses — with names, web URLs, and logos that may appear reminiscent of a government agency — that notify aircraft owners of impending registration expiration (mined from publicly available registration information) and direct them to use search engines such as Google to find the proper renewal site. Adventure Pilot has upgraded their iFly GPS aero-app. They describe Version 11 as a major upgrade that includes intelligent flight planning, graphical weather briefings, enhanced graphical instrument appr

Also: Super Bowl LIV Restrictions, Electric Silent Falcon E1, Phantom Drone Returns, 2020 AUVSI XCELLENCE

Apple has hired an attorney specializing in drone and aviation law to act as a lobbyist for the company in Washington, D.C. Lisa Ellman, who leads the UAS practice for the law firm Hogan Lovells, has joined the tech firm. Elllman was also a co-founder of the Commercial Drone Alliance.
