You may have seen the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise lighting beacon and wondered how you can get that same sort of lighting beacon without buying an entirely new drone. If you already own a drone, you can get these STROBON Cree LED strobe lights for dirt cheap and attach them to your drone with these mounts.
From what I can tell, these lights are nearly as bright as the official DJI Beacon and can be seen from nearly 3 miles away. If you’re concerned about weight, each of these mounts PLUS the Cree LED weighs an additional 5 grams (not a whole lot even if you use 4). And from various videos shown online, it doesn’t seem to affect any video recording at all once the drone is in the air.
Here are a couple of videos of the lights in action on various drones.
Amazon has finally put out a video to fully explain how the Amazon Prime Air drone delivery system would work. Their pilot program launched in Cambridge, UK has made its first delivery and it looks like a mostly non-human affair from order, to packing, to shipping.
Of course, the big takeaway here is that this system sort of would only work in a rural setting.
Check this video out. Here we have a Mavic Pro owner flying this drone under heavy weight and severe rain, testing the drone's distance capabilities, clipping the drone's rotors, and even throwing heavy things at it while the drone is in the air. Spoiler alert: The drone maintains flight quite well.
