Fly your DJI drone with DJI's new Goggles to get a first-person view of the world in full HD. Up to two pairs of DJI Goggles can be connected to a single Mavic Pro drone and the video footage is sent directly to the Goggles - rather than via the controller - to eliminate lag.

The goggles will cost £499 and go on sale next month. The press release says: 

Drone giant DJI has teamed up with hard drive maker Seagate to create the Fly Drive, a  portable hard drive complete with a MicroSD slot to allow drone users to download footage on location.

There’s a built-in USB-C cable which supports both USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt 3, and the Fly Drive is available in sizes up to 2TB. US price is $120. To find out more, go to Seagate website. The official information says:

DJI has introduced the new Phantom 4 Advanced with a 1"-type, 20-megapixel sensor and a mechanical shutter which can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second. The camera now records H.264 4K videos at 60fps or H.265 4K at 30fps, with a 100Mbps bitrate. The Phantom 4 Advanced+ version comes with its own 5.5-inch 1080p screen integrated into the controller. Flight time extended to 30 minutes. The Phantom 4 Advanced and Phantom 4 Advanced+ is £1,469 (1,549 EUR) and £1,699 (1,849 EUR) and will be on sale on April 30. The official info says: 

A carbon fibre drone said to be the world's fastest tricopter - capable of speeds up to 75mph - and a 4K action camera that shoots 60fps will be unveiled and demonstrated at the CES Show in Las Vegas next month by YI Technology.
