Commercial drones are set to make their debut in New Jersey.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said on Friday he would sign an executive order creating the New Jersey Drone Association.
The group has proposed flying commercial drones from the state’s borders to the US mainland, with New York’s New Jersey Department of Transportation in charge of the project.
The announcement follows the announcement of the state of the art drone demonstration facility at the University of New Jersey, where more than 200 drones were demonstrated last week.
New York has become a global hub for commercial drones after a federal judge ruled in December that the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had overstepped its authority by allowing commercial flights of drones from New York to other states.
Last week, Christie signed a $4.5 billion package of state and local taxes that will be used to fund the state-run drone pilot training centre.
A drone is a unmanned aerial vehicle that can be flown for short periods of time.
A quadcopter is a larger version of a quadcopters that are capable of higher speeds.
The state-of-the-art drone demonstration centre is expected to open next year.
Vivitar Drone, a long-range aerial photography camera that costs $799, is the latest drone from DJI that has received some high praise.
We took it out for a spin at the New York Air and Space Museum, where it was displayed in the “Air and Space” section of the exhibition.
The drone had a good camera performance and it is a bit pricey ($799, or $800 for the 8-pack) but it was easy to fly, with a good stability and easy controls.
In a field of 5-meter-wide blades, the Vivitar is surprisingly light and the drone flies smoothly and easily.
The camera also comes with a battery, which is a plus.
The price and weight are pretty reasonable too.
