At the 2012 National Association of Broadcasters Show, I got to check out the DJI Innovations‘s Spreading Wings S800 (GPS auto flight stabilizing drone) in flight on the street and interviewed a sale rep to inspect the Spreading Wings S800 up close.
The full unit is about $20,000 including transmitter. According to DJI’s sales spec, the drone’s takeoff weight: 6kg, load weight: 2kg, ~16 mins max @ 6kg weight & 10Ah 6S battery. The drone is available end of April 2012. The remote control with screen (?) is available in about 3 months.
If you understand Cantonese, I interviewed the Chinese sales rep in Cantonese (his mother-tongue) for a more relaxed set of Q&As.
