DJI has long owned the consumer drone space as the go-to for high-quality quadcopters. As this category’s popularity has steeply risen over the last few years, we’ve seen more competitors enter this space. The latest of which is the Teal Drone. Its new production model sports some of the fastest consumer-grade speeds that we’ve seen, promising to hit 70MPH. For comparison, the new Phantom 4 tops out at just over 45MPH in its sport mode. So does DJI have a new competitor?

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. Zero Zero Robotics is planning on using a few key features to catch the attention of potential pilots, including auto-follow and an ultra portable design. Ultimately, the question is less about capabilities but brand recognition. Does this up-and-comer stand a chance against the dominant DJI? More below.

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.
