Leak photos suggest that the DJI announcement is a Micro Four Thirds DJI camera

Photos have leaked from SB-DJI.com which show the DJI Zenmuse X5 camera gimbal, which is Micro Four Thirds (MFT) flying on the Inspire.  As DJI themselves are a Micro Four Thirds system member, it was always expected that they would make their own camera eventually, the only reason you become a member is to manufacturer your own cameras, otherwise you’re reliant on third parties.

Has the Solo launch derailed?

Has the Solo launch derailed?

The longest launch? The Solo launch feels like the longest launch in multicopter history and possibly the bumpiest so far.
