AMA Drone Report 12.05.19: Drone Thieves, JetQuad, SkyPixel And DJI

Two thieves broke into Atlanta Hobby Shop in Forsyth, GA on November 30 and made off with about $81,000 in high-end drones, according to the owner of the store.

The entire incident only took about four minutes. Atlanta Hobby owner Cliff Whitney said the thieves apparently were familiar with the store. They broke in, went immediately to the light switch, and knew right were to go for the highest-dollar items. The thieves wore concealing clothing, but the entire incident was captured on the store's security cameras. The thieves also stole toys from the "Toys for Tots" box in which the store was collecting donations for Christmas. Fusion Flight has been developing a turbine-powered VTOL drone that it compares to a "scaled-down version of the Harrier Jump-Jet". The AB5 JetQuad is a new type of aircraft, according to the company website. This is not a quadcopter, nor a helicopter, nor an airplane. Four microturbine jet-engines produce a combined 200-Horsepower at full throttle and are all coupled with proprietary Thrust Vectoring Systems. DJI and SkyPixel have announced the annual Aerial Photo & Video Contest celebrating SkyPixel’s 5th anniversary. Running from December 3, 2019 to February 3, 2020, this year’s contest introduces a special “Aerial Story” category to celebrate its 5th year and welcomes submissions from professional photographers, videographers, aerial enthusiasts and content creators around the globe. This year’s SkyPixel Aerial Photo & Video Contest consists of 9 storytelling categories in two formats, one in photography and the other in video.
