DJI continues to diversify its drone offerings with its new commercial and FPV drone racing applications.
DJI Racing series
On Feb. 22, DJI tweeted an announcement of its new FPV racing products — a somewhat unexpected move from the company most well known for its photography drones
The foray into drone racing includes two new DJI products: the TAKYON series of ESCs, aptly named for a hypothetical particle that moves faster than light, and the ironically named Snail racing propulsion system.
These are not fully functional, ready-to-fly aircraft — they are simply components for a full racing build. This is atypical for a company known for drones that work straight out of the box, but is certainly in line with the intended audience of FPV racers. The weekly YouTube series Rotor Riot reviewed
both products, including a DJI racing airframe that is not currently listed on DJI’s website.
