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.

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.”

Barnstorming: Everything Old Can Be Made New Again

The Sun ‘n Fun Digital DailyIs Underway… But It Will Be Anything but Easy

Plans are nothing; planning is everything. (Dwight D. Eisenhower) I don’t have to tell you that for most of us, inside and outside of aviation, the last year or so has been intensely miserable. The effects of the pandemic, the uncertainty surrounding it, and the incredible losses so many have suffered in so many ways, made the year 2020 of the most miserable on record. And 2021 hasn’t started off so great either. Worse; we've lost awfully good friends to this miserable virus... However, for those of us in aviation who have missed many of the things that we feel so strongly about, especially the opportunities we take to gather together and enjoy all that aviation has to offer, we have the chance to start anew. A few weeks ago, we sat down with Sun ‘n Fun Boss, Lites Leenhouts, and agreed t

EAA, GA Groups Meet with New Federal Air Surgeon

Dr. Northrup Is A Retired Air Force Colonel And A Senior FAA AME

EAA and other general aviation groups had the opportunity earlier this month to connect with the FAA's new Federal Air Surgeon, Dr. Susan Northrup, to welcome her to her new position and briefly discuss some of the major issues faced by GA pilots relating to medical certification. "Having a Federal Air Surgeon such as Dr. Northrup, who grew up in an aviation family and has long been involved in general aviation, is certainly a benefit in future discussions about the issues that GA pilots face," said Sean Elliott, EAA's vice president of advocacy and safety. "We also look forward to working with her in more detail and in conjunction with EAA's Aeromedical Advisory Council."

Appears To Be Caused By Improper Procedures At Contractor Facility

Classic Aero-TV: The Stemme S-12 - Upgrading 1 of the 7 Wonders of Aero-Verse

The Stemme S12 Powered Glider Offers Cadillac Features and a Glide Ratio of 53 to 1…

While at EAA AirVenture 2016, our ANN news crew visited with the Director of Flight Operations and Maintenance for Stemme USA. Wes Chumley gave us an inside view of their new motorglider, known as the Stemme S12. The aircraft’s appearance at AirVenture is the first time it has been shown in the USA. Motorgliders come in various sizes and shapes, but the Stemme is quite different from most of them. It’s unique in that the engine is mounted in the front of the aircraft and the propeller is retractable into a smooth fairing that provides a completely glider-like aerodynamic airframe.
