With DJI being under political pressure, the drone industry in the United States is heating up. We have U.S. drone companies such as EasyAerial and Impossible Aero. And more recently we have seen Skydio introduce the Skydio X2, FreeFly Systems teased us with the Astro, Teal announced the Golden Eagle, and now the versatile PRISM drone from Watts Innovations in Maryland.

Watts Innovations might be a name you haven’t yet heard about but they have been making high-end custom drones for commercial and industrial applications since 2016. By closely listening to the feedback from their customers, Watts Innovations has created arguably the most versatile industrial drone that can be flown as a quadcopter, co-axial hexacopter, accept various power sources and carry a large variety of payloads, ranging from LiDAR systems to gimbal-stabilized professional cameras and even spray tanks for agricultural purposes.

Like, I said this might well be the most rounded drone that can be used for pretty much any kind of drone application, made right here in the USA. The PRISM is available for pre-order right now.
