AirVūz News: World of Drones 07/12/21

Published 07/12/2021 06:44

Hello and welcome to the ‘World of Drones’ your weekly news show for all things drone related.

Did you hear?! For the first time in AirVuz history we had one drone pilot win our ‘Drone Video of the Month’ contest and be named our ‘FPV Pilot to Watch’ of the month. JohnnyFPV took home top honors in both of our contests for his “Drive2Extremes” collaboration with Porsche. 

Automobile manufacturer, Jeep, may be incorporating drone technology in future SUV models. At the recent Stellantis' EV Day, Jeep showcased a range of futuristic tech including a follow-me drone functionality that is integrated into the dashboard display of a Jeep Wrangler. The driver would be able to launch the drone and then record video footage from the drone as it follows the vehicle during its on- and off-road adventures. Jeep is not guaranteeing any of these fictional situations will appear in future models, but does suggest if the follow-me drone functionality becomes a reality, it would be in 2025.

Now let’s go over the top 5 drone videos uploaded to last week and crown one our ‘Drone Video of the Week.’
