The Hover drone uses a unique foldable carbon fiber design to keep its wings safe

The consumer drone market has largely been dominated by DJI in the last few years. As interest grows, there has been a lack of viable alternatives to challenge the Phantom line of quadcopters.

A new startup out of Beijing has eyes on pushing its way into this space with a drone called Hover.

DJI’s new professional-grade drone is incredibly powerful and intelligent

DJI has become synonymous with consumer and professional-grade drones as we’ve entered the fourth generation of its line of products. While we’re seeing deals on its entry-level Phantom 3 regularly, the high-end models reserved for filmmakers rarely drop in price. The consumer-focused drones are easy to fly but lack some advanced features desired by more advanced pilots.

Today, at the National Association of Broadcaster’s annual show in Las Vegas, DJI announced the Matrice 600. A top-of-the-line model that is loaded with features for filmmaking. With cutting-edge specs like a new video link system and camera-specific adaptation, this isn’t for your average weekend warrior.
