DJI is often called the “Apple” of the drone world. They do make good quadcopters. I try to avoid buying items made in China (not easy and I am nowhere near 100%… not even close, yet) for many reasons. Too many reasons to list here.

Sure, you can still buy the 2020 Nissan 370Z but why would you? Nissan just filed for a 400Z trademark application and is likely working on announcing this car sometime next year. Expect the Nissan 400Z to take styling cues from the old Datsun 240Z.

Let me start off by saying that internal combustion outboard motors have way more power, but that isn’t the point with this one. The Evoy Pro is the equivalent to a 150-horsepower gasoline motor and runs at 90 kW nominal and 150 kW peak. This product is still evolving but looks promising for places where you need a quiet or less polluting solution. ...
