Autel Robotics & FoxFury Join Drone Donation Program

Last spring, the Starr County Sheriff’s Office made application to the National Public Safety Drone Donation Program (NPS-DDP)/Airborne Works for a Free Drone. NPS-DDP was founded by Airborne Works. Our partners at AUTEL Robotics a global drone manufacture and FoxFury lighting solutions a global public safety lighting solutions provider has teamed up with NPS-DDP to donate New Drones and UAV lighting kits to departments in need. Starr County Sheriff’s Office has been chosen by AUTEL Robotics to receive one of 9 Drone kits to be donated. The UAV will be donated in person to the department. They now have on staff a Licenced FAA 107 drone pilot to fly the drone. This UAV / UAS technology will help save lives and stream line deployment and provide fast realtime situational awareness for the Starr County Sheriff’s office. Being on the nation’s border this new tool is sure to help Starr County Sheriffs department spot potential issues. “The geographic fact that Starr County is a border county with Mexico, allows that we see our fair share of illegal immigration. Aside from our law enforcement assisting with border security, our law enforcement is also dispatched to located illegal immigrants who have lost hope, quit on their trek and have reached out to 911 emergency centers due to them being injured or lost.” Full Starr County drone request found here Autel Robotics and NPS-DDP understand In emergency situations, every second is deemed important. UAV (unmanned aerial vehicles) and drone technology can provide lifesaving assistance

FoxFury D3060

If you’re looking for a way to add a light to your small drone, the new D3060 from FoxFury is worth a look. From FoxFury: “Dual LEDs give the D3060 360-degree lighting. There is 30-degree light on the front and a 60-degree light on the top of the unit. Each one has three modes: low, high, and strobe. These lights can operate independently or simultaneously depending on what you need it to do. For the drone pilots out there – the D3060 weighs in at 1.3 oz (37 g), so it has a minimal impact on flight time. It’s compact enough to fit on small drones like the Autel Evo, DJI Mavic, and Parrot Anafi. The strobe mode meets FAA and global regulations for UAV night flight and anti-collision drone lighting. The D3060’s base plate swivels 360-degrees, so you can point it in any direction necessary whether for ground illumination or navigation lighting. The D3060 comes with dual lock fasteners as well as a strap insert in the base plate, so you can mount it to most drones in addition to wearing on helmets, clothing, bags, etc. Various mounting options can make the D3060 into a utility, anti-collision, or navigation light.” The post FoxFury D3060 appeared first on RotorDrone.

Best of CES: Top Drones & Tech

Best of CES: Top Drones & Tech

At the 2020 CES event in Las Vegas, we were blown away by the new, innovative drones and gear on display! Here are RotorDrone Pro’s award winners from the event.   AUTEL EVO 2 Autel Robotics set a new standard for the functionality of compact, foldable drones at CES 2020 with the release of the Evo 2. The entirely new platform offers omnidirectional binocular collision avoidance, thanks to six pairs of optical cameras that allow the aircraft to build a three-dimensional model of the world around it. There are three models in the Evo 2 series: the base-level Evo 2, which incorporates an 8K video sensor; the Evo 2 Pro, which includes a one-inch sensor capable of capturing 20 megapixel stills and 6K video, and also incorporates an adjustable aperture from F 2.8 to F 11; and, the Evo 2 Dual, which incorporates the same 8K sensor as the base model, as well as FLIR thermal imaging core with a resolution up to 640×512 pixels — equivalent to the top-end model of the Zenmuse XT2. Furthermore, the cameras are interchangeable on board the same aircraft, providing greater flexibility and cost savings to the end user. Powered by a 7,100 mAH battery, the aircraft is capable of flying for up to 40 minutes on a single charge.   ZeroZero Robotics V-Coptr Falcon Because this bicopter can tilt its rotors to perform as well as a four-rotor machine, it boast incredible 50-minute flight times thanks to its 4,500mAh battery.
