DJI is building a 1,395-square-meter arena in Korea, designed to let drone owners fly in a safe (wind protected) environment to learn how to fly a drone and a gathering place for aerial enthusiasts. The arena is located in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, 49 kilometers south of Seoul, and will open in mid-August. When you’re done there DJI, you should definitely bring this to Australia.
The indoor venue will have an adjustable LED-lit circuit, great for those learning how to race their drones and there’s even a LCD TV that shows the live footage from a drone’s camera. There’s safety nets, a maintenance room and charging docks as well as a workstation for people to do minor repairs.
“DJI is committed to making aerial technology more accessible and easier to learn for anyone who wants to use it, and the DJI Arena is a great example,” said Moon Tae-hyun, DJI Korea’s Country Manager. “We hope to provide a safe and fun environment for people to experience the technology first hand, whether they are skilled enthusiasts or someone who is just curious to learn. Best of all, the indoor venue will provide a space for people to fly all year round despite weather conditions outside.”
The DJI Arena will be open for individual and group bookings, corporate event rental and a venue for DJI’s New Pilot Experience Program and workshops. For skilled drone pilots and UAV clubs, the arena can also offer the stage for more advanced flying experiences and drone racing.
Just four months ago, DJI opened its first overseas flagship store in Hongdae, Seoul. The Korea Flagship store has now become a gathering place for aerial enthusiasts to learn about DJI’s latest aerial platforms and camera equipment.
