AirVūz News: World of Drones 11/09/20

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Hi everyone, I’m Jacob Blaeser with AirVuz, and welcome back to THE World of Drones. Your weekly update for everything drone related. Let’s get to it!
We’ll kick things off with one of the coolest drone shows we’ve ever seen. On Saturday night, after President-Elect Joe Biden gave his victory speech, the sky lit up with fireworks and a drone light show that featured the Biden logo, an outline of the United States, the number 46 and the words VP-Elect Harris. The show was performed by drone and tech company Verge Aero, who were actually featured on World of Drones earlier this year with their light show in Philadelphia thanking the healthcare and essential workers. This crew really is changing the game when it comes to drone light shows.

Now, while we’re in the world of high tech drone companies, our friends at Skydio have something up their sleeve as well, making some big-time additions to their Product and Engineering departments. This past week they hired former Director of Software Development at Telsa, Roy Goldman, who will now lead Skydio's Product Management Team. They also added two former Samsara higher-ups, in Ryan Reading and Mike Ross, who will now join Goldman on Skydio’s Product Management crew as well. This trio will "play critical roles in realizing the company's vision for the first-of-its-kind integrated enterprise autonomy stack." the company said in response to the hiring.

From top drone companies, to top drone videos. Here, in no particular order are the top-5 videos uploaded to AirVuz last week.
Living in Nature in 4K | High Definition Aerial Drone Video Filmed In Switzerland (2020) by electriclife - Well, the title pretty much sums this one up. See the spectacular Swiss landscape all from the sky in this high definition video from electriclife. 
North Italy by videobros - We know we’ll always see something amazing when these guys upload, and this one proved that once again. Take a stunning flight over North Italy with the videobros.
English Harbour - Antigua by msember - Mike Sember...  this guy has been traveling EVERYWHERE over the past couple of years, and thankfully for us he’s been documenting it all. This video from Antigua is so AWESOME!
Spain Viewed by Drone by ViDeo Creator jP - See the stunning country of Spain from the sky in the latest edit from Video Creator JP. All filmed with the DJI Mavic Air. 
Iceland - The Diamond Circle - in 4k by Gravity Williams - Spending a week in the Diamond Circle of Iceland sounds absolutely incredible! From Glaciers to beaches to waterfalls and more, this is the PERFECT flight over the land of fire and ice. There’s even a clip of the Wall from Game of Thrones. Which means it’s definitely Jon Snow approved!
And the winner of the Drone Video of the Week goes to...
