This is SERIOUS Unmanned Vehicle technology! Moon Express, one of the competitors in the Google Lunar X Prize program, has unveiled plans to build a new family of spacecraft. The company's agreement with Rocket Labs, which is developing the Electron booster that will propel the Moon Express lander to the Moon in hopes of claiming the $20 million GLXP award, covers up to five launches. Following the initial mission, Moon Express has scheduled a launch in 2019 that would establish a robotic research base near the lunar south pole.

AMA Drone Report 07.20.17: FAST Drones, GeoFencing, Certified Drone Photographer

Also: SureFly Helicopter Concept, 'Design a Drone', Raleigh v Drones, Aero-TV: AMA's David Mathewson

The Drone Racing League recently tested the fastest racing drone, and set the Guinness World Records title for the Fastest ground speed by a battery-powered remote-controlled quadcopter.

The fastest racing drone, the DRL RacerX, demonstrated a reported top speed of 179.6 miles per hour... and weighs only 800 grams. Hackers are making it easy for DJI drone operators to get around the geofencing function included in the firmware of DJI drones, and the company is taking steps to thwart the practice. Such firmware patches are being made available at various locations on the Internet. The dronemaker is reportedly "very concerned" about legal action, and does not want

It’s Friday, And The ANN Advance Team Is Ready To Pull The AirVenture Trigger

Saturday is the day when the entire ANN team joins together at Oshkosh to form a well-oiled machine (at least, that’s the plan) for the big push to AirVenture 2017. The advance team has everything prepared for the action to start as we make our plans for the super AirVenture coverage that we have in store. Here’s a reminder of what’s going on and a list of things to think about that our experienced AirVenture staff has put together for those that have not been to EAA AirVenture before. First, remember that our coverage of AirVenture will actually begin latger today with our webcast of the AirVenture Innovation Preview, we call it the AIP. The AIP is a massive news teaser... an invitation to build serious BUZZ and promote all the amazing innovations that make Oshkosh one of the most outstanding examples of ingenuity and aero-entrepreneurialism. Just come to our website and you can pick it up there.
