Future Concept DJI Phantom X 

Pic from DJI  -----      

Just recently, my husband added a gimbal for steady video and found that there was a firmware update  for the controller as well.  This update loaded flight limits and airport no fly zone information into the controller.  DJI is one of the largest makers of drones or UAV.  Because these drones use GPS signals to provide information to the controller, it would seem that this information could be used to create a virtual fence around no-fly zones.  This is a pro-active step by a company to help minimize safety issues.  

 

DJI has also created a concept Phantom X that is truly an amazing advancement in technology.  It basically can fly without the help of a pilot.  There are already sonar type add-ons to help fly a drone indoors and avoid objects and you can program points or a course for the drone to fly but this new concept will put all that together in one easy drone package. 

 

Here is the link to the DJI Concept Phantom X video 

 

If you are just hearing about this or want more information I am including links to a blog by Larry Johnston and the FAA link to Registration Questions and Answers.

Drones seem to be all the buzz right now.  I bet there are lots of these little gems under the trees this year.  Thanks for the update about the rules.

Thanks for your very interesting information on drones. I wonder if the controled area software will become standard in the near future.

Your husband sounds like he has done his homework and knows how to get the most out of his drone.
