A C-130 Hercules water tanker owned by Oregon-based Coulson Aviation has gone down in New South Wales, Australia while fighting bush fires in the region. Three American crew members were fatally injured Thursday when the plane went down in the state's Snowy Morano region.

The DJI Phantom line of drones, considered by some to be the industry standard, vanished from store shelves about 14 months ago.

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.
