Drone manufacturer DJI is planning to open a 1,395-square-metre arena in Korea later this month to show off its drones, The Next Web reports.
DJI says the arena will be open for people to learn about drones and will offer courses on how to fly them.
“The indoor venue will be equipped with safety nets, an adjustable LED-lit circuit for those who want to test their skills,” DJI says, “and a LCD TV for a more immersive experience via first-person view from their drone.”
The arena, which is 49 kilometers south of Seoul, is expected to open in mid-August.
DJI Korea country manager Moon Tae-hyun made the following comment about the arena:
“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. 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.”
