DJI challenges FAA’s low-risk drone maximum weight limit

Drone company DJI has challenged the Federal Aviation Administration’s maximum weight limit for so-called “low risk drones,” saying it is too low.

DJI M200 is no toy, built for professional use

DJI M200 is no toy, built for professional use

It seems that drones have come almost full circle. Originally created more for industrial and military purposes, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), or drones as they are more popularly called, have become a hobbyist product that came in all sizes and prices. With that market almost saturated, drone makers like DJI have turned their attention to even bigger customers. The DJI Matrice 200, or M200, line of drones isn’t something you’ll be able to play with, even if you can afford it. This drone is all work and no fun, targeted at companies and industrial customers, but has a bigger potential to improve the lives of its users significantly.

DJI at CES 2017: Osmo Mobile Silver, Zenmuse M1, Phantom 4 CNY

Some companies only have one or two products to show off at CES. Others, however, have a whole fleet. Drone experts DJI aren’t holding back this year either. At CES 2017’s Unveiled floor, it is showing off not one, not even two, but five distinct products, not all of them hardware and not all of them even available already. The latter, a prototype of its CrystalSky Monitor, will surely whet the appetites of more serious drone operators. But even if you’re just more into selfies rather than drones, the new Osmo Mobile Silver might still be of interest.
