Drones to Ukraine

I’m sure many of you will have Geeksvana’s video pop up in your YouTube feeds.

I wanted to applaud the efforts that went in to getting aid in the shape of drones to Ukraine.

Why are they sending 140 drones to Ukraine?

I saw something earlier that “Power Banks - For charging phones” were needed.

Apparently Ukraine military requested drones.

It looks like they bought DJI Mavic Mini and Mini 2 models from an online store, unboxed and charged them.

Packed in suitcases they flew them to Warsaw from Helsinki. And they are now supposedly in Ukraine.

I would think they’d be useful for aerial reconnaissance, and for making photo and video evidence to share with the world.

I read something about kamikaze missions as well. May have been some false reporting nonsense though.

Did anyone think about Dji NFZ :man_shrugging:

Good point.

They could become GADC full members and avail themselves of Drone-Hacks discount code :grin:

I wonder if DJI would consider switching off the geo fencing in a war zone.
What an idea though, to send out 140 Minis to help the Ukrainian forces. God help them.

I wouldn’t think so in this instance, bearing in mind it’s a Chinese owned company, whose alliances lay with Russia.
