DJI set to open first UAS arena in Japan
On Oct. 21, DJI will open its first UAS arena in Japan called “DJI Arena By JDRONE Tokyo.”
A variety of capabilities and features will be offered at the arena, including a flying area that is equipped with safety nets and an adjustable circuit for those that are interested in testing their flying skills. This area will also give UAS enthusiasts a place to fly year round regardless of weather conditions outside.
The arena also has a retail store, which will showcase the company’s consumer, professional, and enterprise products, giving customers the opportunity to purchase the latest technology released by DJI. Technical support will also be offered at the arena.
“As interest around our aerial technology continues to grow, the DJI Arena concept is a new way for us to engage not just hobbyists but also those considering this technology for their work or just for the thrill of flying,” says Moon Tae-Hyun, DJI’s Director of Brand Management and Operations.
“Having the opportunity to get behind the remote controller and trying out the technology first hand can enrich the customer experience. When people understand how it works or how easy it is to fly, they will discover what this technology can do for them and see a whole new world of possibilities.”
The 535-square-meter arena will be managed and operated by Authorized Dealer Japan Circuit in partnership with DJI Japan.
Japan Circuit's CEO Tetsuhiro Sakai says, “we are extremely excited to partner with DJI to launch the first DJI Arena in Japan.”
“The new DJI Arena will not only serve as a gathering place for drone enthusiasts but also help us reach new customers and anyone interested in learning about this incredible technology.”
The arena will be open for individual and group bookings, corporate event rentals, and it will serve as a venue for DJI’s New Pilot Experience Program. Workshops will also be hosted at the arena.
