If you don't like hitting turbulence when you're flying (and who does?), then you're not going to like the conclusions of a study recently conducted by Dr. Paul Williams at the University of Reading. If his supercomputer simulations are anything to go by, climate change will cause a major increase in severe turbulence – enough so that new flight routes may have to be developed... Continue
Although DJI's original Mavic drone is two years old now, it's still hovering at the top of its class. But not content to rest on its laurels, DJI has now launched the Mavic 2 series, which extends that lead by equipping a 2x optical zoom onto the Mavic 2 Zoom, and teaming up with Hasselblad to kit out the Mavic 2 Pro with a 20-megapixel, 1-in CMOS sensor. So how much of an improvement are
There was bit of drama aboard the International Space Station (ISS) today as the astronauts aboard raced to find and seal an air leak detected in one the Soyuz spacecraft attached to the station. The leak, which was detected yesterday at about 7:00 pm EDT, appears to have been caused by a micrometeorite, but it has now been fixed with station pressure holding steady as the crew carries out

At first glance, that's understandable since they typically lack the premium features you find on more prosumer level drones, like 4K cameras. That's why I appreciate what Spin Master is doing with the new Air Hogs Supernova. I've covered Spin Master products

As successful as the Rolls-Royce name has been in luxury cars, it's been far bigger in aeronautics. The two are very separate companies at this point – the car company employs some 1,300 people, but it's absolutely dwarfed by the aircraft motor business, which employs around 50,000. So when these guys announce a four- to five-passenger hybrid electric/turbine VTOL aircraft concept with a 2 is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
