Over the last two days, photos and specs have been going around the internet of a supposedly new DJI fixed-wing VTOL drone. The information originated from two Twitter accounts, that in previous cases have provided very accurate information. This time, detailed photos of the drone showing DJI components and specs were released. All seemingly part of the new DJI fixed-wing VTOL drone. Today, however, we received a message from DJI today dispelling these rumors.
This morning, we learned from two important sources new information about DJI’s fixed-wing VTOL drone. As you have seen there is a photo of the actual drone flying, but we now also have more detailed photos and information on the various cameras that can be used with this drone. A lot of the content in the slides below is in Chinese and we are in the process of translating that.
Update: DJI has informed us that the drone pictured in this post is NOT an official DJI product. More information here.
