DJI celebrates 16th anniversary with a drone show
DJI, the world's leading drone maker, recently celebrated its 16th birthday with a spectacular drone show over its new headquarters in Shenzhen, China.
The event was a testament to the company's impressive growth since its inception in 2006.
Founded by Frank Wang, DJI's first drone prototypes were created in his college dorm room. The company grew with the support of friends and family, but they faced significant challenges, including high turnover rates among their workers.
In 2013, DJI made a major breakthrough with the introduction of their Phantom drone, which was more user-friendly than other drones on the market at the time. However, it wasn't until the release of the DJI Phantom 3 in 2015 that the company achieved true success.
The Phantom 3 featured a built-in camera capable of live streaming, which quickly became a game-changer for aerial photography and videography. This feature, coupled with the company's commitment to creating affordable, high-quality drones, cemented DJI's position as the world's largest camera drone maker.
After the success of the DJI Phantom 3, the company released the highly popular DJI Phantom 4, followed by the DJI Mavic Pro in 2016, which kickstarted the trend of foldable drones.
