Airborne 03.03.21: DJI FPV!, Hartzell STC's Voyager, Loyal Wingman Flies

Also: Samaritan's Purse DC-8, X-57 Readies, CAE Acquiring L3Harris MilBiz, Federal Air Surgeon

DJI has launched a new type of drone -- an FPV drone that combines the first-person view and performance of racing drones, the camera capabilities of traditional drones, and an optional innovative single-handed motion controller that allows pilots to control the drone with just hand movements.

The DJI FPV ecosystem includes the drone, goggles, a dedicated remote controller, and a new intuitive motion controller option that steers the drone based on the movement of your hand. Hartzell has expanded the eligibility of its popular three-blade aluminum Voyager props. Voyager is now STC approved for the large fleet of Cessna 180/182/185/206 aircraft, powered by Continental 520 and 550 engines. The Voyager, which has reportedly been well received by bush pilots, was previously approved for Cessna's A185E/F Skywagon and AgCarryall aircraft. The custom-designed Voyager propeller provides premium performance with up to seven knots faster cruise speed, 10 percent better take-off acceleration, an exceptional climb rate, and quieter flight. It features swept aluminum blades designed for optimal performance. The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has successfully completed the first test flight of the Loyal Wingman uncrewed aircraft. The flight of the first military aircraft to be designed and manufactured in Australia in more than 50 years flew under the supervision of a Boeing test pilot monitoring the aircraft from a ground control station at the Woomera Range Complex. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
