DJI announces the Mini 2 with up to 4K@30fps recording and better transmission range

Alphabet's Wing gains FAA license to fly drones for U.S. deliveries

It's a concept that's been teased by megacorporations for years yet has only had meaningful progress in recent years: delivery by drone. For Google, Project Wing was conceived some 6 years ago as a way to shoot dog food from a local warehouse to your house.
