Update: The winner of the Charged Mavic Pro year-end giveaway is Mico F. from the Philippines. Congratulations, Mico, and we’ll be in touch to get you your Mavic Pro drone! Everyone else, come back for the next giveaway – it will be just as exciting!
Welcome to the December edition of Charged Monthly, the series where we look at the highlights of the month that just ended and give you a taste of what’s to come.
Looking for Mavic Pro and other great drones? Here’s our list of some of the best options right now.
State of Charged
Last month marked a premiere for Charged.io: our first auto show participation and our first drone launch event. Our Jonathan Feist and Josh Vergara were in LA for the DJI Inspire 2 launch and AutoMobility/LA Auto Show 2016, and it’s been a blast. We got our feet wet when it comes to events, but we also brought you a few cool videos and interviews you can check out on our YouTube channel.
Our year-end giveaway hit a snag. Namely, GoPro decided to recall the Karma drone we put up for grabs in our November-December giveaway. While we had to send our unit back, we hope that GoPro will be able to keep its promise and return the Karma to stores over the next weeks.
While things clear up at GoPro, we’ve decided to switch the prize in our year-end giveaway to a DJI Mavic Pro. That’s right, we’re giving away another Mavic Pro, to ensure that our winner gets a great drone in a timely manner. Entries from the previous month are still valid!
Take your shot at winning the Mavic Pro in the widget at the end of this post. The winner will be announced at the beginning of January.
