The drone community suffered a sad loss last week. Brian Bloss, also known as bbloss, passed away in a tragic accident. Brian was known to most as an incredibly talented drone pilot and content creator and to many as a great friend. He influenced countless aspiring drone pilots with his aerial timelapses and his famous blossout dronies during his travels. The drone community has shown an outpouring of love on social media using #WeOutHere.

France drone company Parrot announced it is phasing out it’s more affordable consumer-focused drones like the Mambo and Swing to instead focus on the commercial market with its Anafi quadcopter.
