In the March issue of Drone360, Patrick Sherman of the Roswell Flight Test Crew provides an in depth travelogue regarding is 2016 trip to Shenzhen, China. Known as "The Silicon Valley of China," the city was a quiet fishing village less than two decades ago.
Today, it is home to more than 20 million people and most of the world's major drone manufacturers, including DJI. Instead of spending his time in the city's famed leafy downtown core with towering glass and steel skyscrapers, Sherman visits Shenzhen's hardscrabble "suburban" area and tours the factory of an upstart drone manufacturer pinning its hopes on a breakthrough technology that could dramatically transform the industry.
Patrick Sherman of the Roswell Flight Test Crew is the author of three separate articles in the current issue of RotorDrone magazine.
Check out the "Aerial Intel" section at the front of the magazine for coverage of the Vuzix Drone Racing Cup, held at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino during the Consumer Electronics Show this past January.

Also, be sure to check out Sherman's review of the Eachine Goggles One HD video goggles, which incorporate a 1080p display. Surprisingly affordable, the Goggles One is suitable for both FPV racing and aerial cinematography.
