Just now the first photos and specs have surfaced online from what appears to be the new DJI Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL), fixed-wing quadcopter drone. As we have reported before, this drone is aimed at the agricultural and industrial markets.

As we learn more specifics about this all-new fixed-wing drone from DJI, we will keep you posted on DroneDJ. At a first glance, this seems to be solid competition for Yamaha’s agricultural drone that was recently shown at CES 2018.
