Drones for good!  😇 

Sophocles said “To be doing good deeds is man’s most glorious task.”
(…and our drones take that pretty seriously ✌️)

Drones are helping people all over the 🌎, everyday!  We’ve seen remarkable footage uploaded to AirVūz showcasing the various ways that drones aid in everything from search and rescue, to bridge inspections, agriculture and even anti-poaching efforts.   In fact, we’ve seen so many, we knew we had to pull them together in a nice collection to confirm the idea that not only are drones good, but drones are AMAZING!

To see how some prime examples of just how much good drones can do, check out our new Drones for Good Causes Collection 🎞,  found only on AirVūz!

Cookie Delivery, by Drone?! 🍪

When a world-renown chef and food critic needs a cookie, he gets a cookie…so this story starts at the Minnesota State Fair, where millions gather at the end of every summer for rides, shows, and some of the best ‘fair food’ the world has to offer.

Chef Andrew Zimmern has been busy traveling the globe while eating, well, bizarre foods, and is checking out what the State Fair has to offer when the craving hits; he needs some Sweet Martha’s Cookies in his life!  Meanwhile, Sweet Martha is making sure things are running smoothly in her cookie shop on Opening Day of the Fair. Her phone buzzes – it’s Andrew Zimmern! He has tweeted that he needs some cookies ASAP! What does the sweet lady do? She sends them the fastest way she knows how: via drone.

Follow the cookie drone’s journey as it makes it’s way past the Weisman Art Museum, beyond U.S. Bank Stadium, around Target Field, by Gold Medal Park and over the Spoonbridge and Cherry to Andrew Zimmern’s kitchen.

Will it make the voyage on time to satisfy the famous chef? Will the cookies be warm enough to satiate our favorite foodie? How will the bonafide critic take the delivery method? Find out on “Cookie Drone!”

Opening Day of the 2017 Minnesota State Fair, captured by drone!

For the first time in it’s nearly 150 year history, the Minnesota State Fair is being covered via drone. See what the infamous Midway, Grandstand, and more look like from an aerial perspective on Opening Day!

What began in 1854 as a territorial fair to highlight agriculture and encourage farming in the region became the Minnesota State Fair in 1859, a year after Minnesota was granted statehood.  Today, often referred to as the “Great Minnesota Get-Together,” the annual Minnesota State Fair is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region. The fair attracts more than 1.9 million guests annually. Located mid-way between Minneapolis and St. Paul, the 320-acre Minnesota State Fairgrounds is renowned for its beautiful gardens and architecture reflecting the art deco and Works Progress Administration eras.

Hundreds of events are held on the fairgrounds throughout the year during the non-fair time, including horse and livestock competitions, merchandise sales, expositions, car shows and more. This end-of-summer tradition is always held the 12 days leading up to and through Labor Day. The 2017 Minnesota State Fair runs Aug. 24 – Sept. 4.

So exciting to see it from above!  If you can’t visit  in person this year, no worries!  Watch this great drone footage of the Minnesota State Fair instead!

YourVūz: 🌞Summer is here! And so is the next contest topic!

It’s summer! (Well, at least for us!  If you’re in the southern hemisphere, then well, you’re in winter...)

For this episode, Rusty and Allie spend the day on Minnesota’s Prior Lake, because summer for Minnesotans usually means trips to the lake 😉.

This show features water fun, summer travel destinations and many other views of your summer.  Rusty humors us in his usual unique way, and Allie keeps us hip with her fashionable swimsuit and almost gets eaten by a snapping turtle. Ok well, maybe not almost but what a moment that was! 😆  And last but not least, we gave away $500!

(Oh, and feel free to comment on Rusty’s hat. Is it sexy? Did you upload? Did you use the yourvuz keyword? If so, great! You might be featured in this summer fun episode! If you didn’t, well, there is always next time! That’s right, next time! Next month’s topic is… parties! Show us how you celebrate!

DRL Winners: Congrats to Jet, GAB707, and Wild Willy FPV (Team AirVūz)!

Cheers to another great season of the Drone Racing League!

It’s been real.  And it’s been real fast.  The 2017 DRL Season was exhilaration-packed and flew by like a rocket, but not without crowning the top three pilots first!

Congratulations to Jet, GAB707, and our own Wild Willy FPV on their respective 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place wins!

We all know now that racing drones is a legit sport (BTW – does it get any more real than ESPN?), and these talented pilots who’ve conquered the drone racing scene have plenty of street (or maybe “air?”) cred gilded into their FPV goggles!

Flying the extreme courses in New Orleans, Boston, Miami, Munich, and  London, these pilots turned their stick time into prime time entertainment for the television viewing masses.  (You can still find the replays on ESPN, ESPN2, and their affiliates!).

AirVuz sends out major kudos to all of the 2017 DRL pilots on the entertaining and cutting edge season, including a special shout out to our AirVūz community members of Nurk, Gab707, FPV Provo, Falcon X, 32BitsofGil, and A_Nub, as well as our Team AirVuz pilots FlyingBearFPV and yes, 3rd place winner Wild Willy FPV (woot woot!).
