During our annual trip to Maker Fair we stopped by the DJI Customer Experience Store in Time Square.
The store has a close resemblance to an Apple Store, the white themed store had all of the DJI products on display with knowledgeable staff. They had big equipment like the ronin and s800 drones used in movie productions to the smaller Phantoms and Osmo stabilizers.
We recently used the Osmo Mobile for shooting all of the videos for this years Maker Fair. It has neat features like face tracking and does an excellent job keeping shots nice and smooth.
I was of course excited to check out the recently announced Mavic, the companies slick foldable pocket drone.
The size really took us by surprise, it’s about as big as an iPhone 7 plus. The Mavic is super portable without sacrificing any features. I definitely look forward to building cool 3d printing projects for it!
So if your in the NYC area and in to drones, it’s worth taking a trip to see the store on 1666 Broadway.
