The store has a close resemblance to an Apple Store, the white themed store had all of the DJI products on display with knowledgeable staff. They had big equipment like the ronin and s800 drones used in movie productions to the smaller Phantoms and Osmo stabilizers.
We recently used the Osmo Mobile for shooting all of the videos for this years Maker Fair. It has neat features like face tracking and does an excellent job keeping shots nice and smooth.
I was of course excited to check out the recently announced Mavic, the companies slick foldable pocket drone.
The size really took us by surprise, it’s about as big as an iPhone 7 plus. The Mavic is super portable without sacrificing any features. I definitely look forward to building cool 3d printing projects for it!
So if your in the NYC area and in to drones, it’s worth taking a trip to see the store on 1666 Broadway.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
