KDE Direct Commercial Drone Components Onboard CNN News Gathering Drones

The new CNN newsgathering drones include a Delta X8 from Altus Unmanned Aerial Solutions of New Zealand as well as a tethered drone developed by Florida-based Drone Aviation Corp., both fitted with KDE Direct drone motors and propellers to advance its efforts to employ unmanned aircraft for their aerial newsgathering over public and property.  Selected as one the Federal Aviation Administration’s three Pathfinder organizations, CNN has been actively engaged in identifying and evaluating UAS systems that meet both the functionality and safety requirements of this demanding role.  

Since the purchase of the X8 by CNN, the reporting on the system is to the FAA’s Pathfinder Program. 

KDE Direct is pleased to be the component provider of choice in these commercial UAS for newsgathering.
