Last week we on World of Drones, we told you about Amazon becoming the third company to officially receive their Part 135, which enables expanded use of their autonomous air delivery system to connect rural populations for improved delivery times. Just the other day, this topic was brought up to AirVuz President and CEO Mike Israel while on RT America. Here is some of what Israel said regarding what this means for the the drone industry:

Our friends at Teal Drones are at it again. Their latest creation, the Golden Eagle, will be meant for surveillance and reconnaissance missions by military and government agencies. The Golden Eagle is said to have a flight time of to 50 minutes and can fly up to 50 miles per hour. It will also be able to fly in 30 mph wind speeds and temps as cold as 32 below and hot as 120 degrees Fahrenheit. George Matus, founder of Teal Drones said “Golden Eagle is the system we’ve always wanted to build. It’s the culmination of five years of work to bring the market a combined hardware and software platform that maintains the ethos of Teal One, but with new industrial-grade technology ready for the most demanding aerial operations.”Congrats to George and the Teal Drones Team on their launch of another American-made, game changing drone. 

Now, from game changing drones, to game changing drone videos, here in no particular order are the top 5 videos uploaded to Airvuz last week.
