BBC’s Planet Earth II is one of most talked about wildlife television productions ever. Wildlife filmmaker and drone operator Michael J. Sanderson of Ateles Films talks to Skytango about his experiences working on the series.
DJI released “The Circle,” a 14-minute short film starring Ryan Phillippe and Noah Schnapp (Will Byers from Stranger Things) as an estranged father and son (respectively) in Depression-era America.
The Circle was shot entirely on the Inspire 2, using the drone’s X5R camera for every shot in the film. It was created by Academy Award-winning cinematographer Claudio Miranda, known for his work on “Life of Pi,” “Oblivion,” and “Tron.”

International expedition to the second highest peak of the World, mystic K2 at Karakoram, Pakistan! This is a short movie about flying a drone at high altitude at Camp I (6334 m a.s.l.).
The footage drones produce can be beautiful. Being able to fly on a completely different parallax, easily adjusting height and speed, all gives an intensely visually stimulating image. So when this is paired with chasing a mud-slinging rally car, drones give depth and a rawness that a man in the helicopter or the muddy guy with the tripod just can’t.

7-Eleven and drone startup Flirtey made the very first consumer drone delivery in the United States, according to Tech Crunch.
The convenience store chain successfully delivered Slurpees, a chicken sandwich, donuts, hot coffee, and candy to a family on July 10 using a drone built by Flirtey.
We are living in the future
Our new vlog series, How to Race Drones, features Mashable Creative Producer Sam Sheffer diving into the growing world of drone racing as he prepares to compete in the Liberty Cup drone race on July 30.
In the first episode, two drone experts teach Sheffer what it takes to move from a beginner to an advanced drone extraordinaire.
From building a drone to flying one, Sheffer learns it all.
George Matus was 11 years old when he flew his first drone. "I was immediately hooked," the young man tells me with a grin. By age 16 he was competing as a professional drone racer and acting as a test pilot for new aircraft. Now 18, he recently finished high school but decided to defer college, opting instead to pursue a fellowship offer from tech billionaire Peter Thiel. He used that money to start his own company, Teal, which today is launching its first product, a consumer facing drone that a beginner can easily fly with an iPhone to capture 4K video. The difference between Teal's first drone and the competition is that this unit can also perform like a racecar, reaching speeds of 85 miles per hour while flipping, diving, and performing barrel rolls.
Rediculas, but also brilant.
The Pokémon Go craze is real, and it's forcing ghastly pale nerds like me who have never felt the kiss of Earth's sun to catch some dang virtual pokémans. (Other plural forms of Pokémon include Pokémen and Pokésmons.)
An unexpected side effect of Pokémon Go has been accidental exercise, as shown in this Gizmodo article documenting dozens of players reporting sore legs from walking around. One Pokémon Go player found a sneaky way around this pandemic, by strapping his Android to a DJI Phantom drone and mirroring his phone screen on his laptop using a program called AirDroid.
Look at this Cheaty McCheaterface, who asked Reddit if this MacGuyvered Pokémon Go setup was cheating, knowing FULL WELL WHAT IT IS:
Um, absolutely it is cheating! And yet I understand his infringing of the tacit rules of pokémon husbandry. When the game requires you trek all over town to hit up pokéstops and gyms and wander around aimlessly hoping for a rare pokémon other than a Doduo or Rattata to show up, it gets old fast. The egg incubator which tracks how much distance you've walked also won't count toward hatching your egg if you're in a car or train. A drone could fly slowly enough to trick the phone to think you're walking, so this solution is actually hilariously ingenious. And a cheat — let’s not forget it’s a cheat.
Yes, I am aware this is a franchise originally created for children, and a grown man devising a dastardly "Team Rocket scheme to capture pokémon" in a game meant to unify people IRL is shameful. But you know what? I don't care. Games aren’t just for kids anymore. Games are for adults too: cold, unfeeling, dastardly adults.
