Scientists make field observations of one of the fault ruptures following the 7.8M Kaikoura Earthquake in New Zealand last week.
World Organization of Racing Drones is the authority created to bring together the communities of drone racers, fans and manufacturers to create a sport unlike any other. Guided by five main pillars, W.O.R.D. will govern the WDP and related drone races, set rules and regulations for the industry and worldwide events, award host cities, accredit and attest pilots and organizations and last, but not least, spread awareness on the the positive commercial drone use.
The World Drone Prix in Dubai was the first million dollar drone race, with the winning team taking home a cool $250,000. We meet the tech-loving thrill-seekers behind the sport who want to turn it into the next big thing.
If you are feeling a little stressed out, then watching this drone footage just might help take your mind off all the petty worries in the world. Atleast of a few minutes anyway. Uheheu’s Youtube channel just published footage of a few Humpback whales chilling off the coast of Hawaii. I hope you all enjoy, and have a nice day.
This has to be one of, if not the coolest drone on the market at this moment. I wouldn’t mind having a human sized Loon Coptor for my own personal pleasure. It sure would be nice to take it out for a spin, maybe take a dive to check out the aquatic life near a coral reef in some tropic local. In the mean time I will settle for the smaller version. Just strap on a under water camera and let the fun commence.
Here is a Video of the Loon Copter from the 2016 ‘Drones for Good Competition.’ The Loon Copter was selected as 1 of 10 semifinalist in the international category. The competition had received 1017 entries from 165 countries.
The Loon Copter project started in 2014 at Oakland University and is the first multi-rotor drone to successfully demonstrate flight, operation on the surface of water, as well as diving. This is a proof-of-concept prototype and there is still a lot of work to be done.
They are looking into extended wireless range underwater, navigation underwater, a redesign of the hull for more efficient diving, payloads for different applications, etc.

Meet the Ghost Drone. This new drone technology will turn the average person into a high tech filmmaker. Scratch those obsolete remote control hand sets that you are use to using with your average drones. The Ghost flies using your smart phone with simple controls and maping system. The Ghost Drone also offers advanced Autofollow technology. That’s right, set it on autofollow and it will follow you capturing biking, surfing, snowboarding or whatever other activity you want to capture.
Here is the drone footage showing just how many people have showed up in Hong Kong to protest for Democracy. The downtown Financial district has basically been over run with protesters, and police have resorted to using tear gas to try and disperse the crowds. That seems to be feeding the mobs, because since the police have used tear gas, the crowds have grown 10 fold. This Drone footage will give you a good aerial prospective of just how many protesters there are on the scene.
I never knew exactly how beautiful the Sahara Desert is, until after having the pleasure of watching this video. Sammy B. and his film crew caught breath-taking footage using a drone and other methods. The footage was captured using a Gopro HERO 3. I am definitely going to have to add Sandboarding to my bucket list also! Almost forgot, the scenes were filmed in Timimoun Tamanrasset (Hoggar Tassili) and Djanet (Tassili Ajjer).
On June 19th at approximately 10:52 am only 10 minutes after a fire started at the Chula Vista Boat Yard in San Diego. Kurt Roll’s channel sent out a drone capturing up close footage of the fire. According to NBC San Diego the boat was owned by an Electrical Engineer from Minnesota.
