DJI is the world leader in drone development and manufacture. Da-Jiang Innovations was founded in 2006 by Frank Wang and is based in Shenzhen, nicknamed China’s Silicon Valley. From a one room office it has grown rapidly to an international company employing more than 3,000 people in China, USA, Japan, Germany and the Netherlands.
Its range of unmanned multi-rotor aircraft is the market leader and DJI was the first to introduce brushless gimbal camera stabilisers and autopilots to the mass market. It’s now pioneering a collision avoidance system for drones.
Its extremely popular Phantom range of quadcopters has dominated the market for consumer camera drones but it also produces high end hexacopter and octocopters which are capable of lifting heavier, professional TV cameras.
Heliguy was DJI’s first supplier in the UK and is the only DJI approved repair centre which can now handle warranty work. This reduces delays and frustration for DJI customers who, in the past, have had to return their equipment to Germany.
