Last month my question to you was.”Is it time for you to buy a drone?” As it turns out, it was a bit premature to ask that question as there have been many new developments in the world of “drones”
So what’s changed? Plenty. First and foremost, “drone” hobbyists who use their quad for recreational purposes are no longer required to register their “drone”. The change in the procedure was due to a suit against the FAA that challenged their right to install a registration process for quad hobbyists in the first place. Click here to learn more
Moving forward, if you are a “drone” pilot who is using your quad for business or commercial purposes, you will still be required to register your drone and pass the FAA Part 107 Pilot exam. However if you are using your quad in a recreational capacity, you will not. Stay tuned!
Another big bomb shell was dropped last month when DJI, a company that controls 70% of the market, unveiled its new “Selfie Drone”. The new DJI “Spark” is a game changer. Why? Well first, the size of the “Spark” can’t be ignored, as it’s about the size of an I-phone. What’s more is that it contains obstacle avoidance technology and you can control it with hand gestures or your smart phone. The “Spark is not the first “drone” in its class, but it is the first of its kind to offer a gimbal based 1080P 30FPS camera on board. At $499, DJI is hoping to get the attention of first time drone buyers. So I ask again. Is it time for you to buy a drone? If it is you may want to give the “Spark” a look.
