And it comes with its own crew. And a truck.
Usually film gear companies make a lot of noise when announcing their new products. However, without a whole lot of pomp and circumstance, right in the thick of CineGear 2019 no less, DJI quietly unveiled not only their new drone but also their custom aerial cinematography service in a video on YouTube.
The DJI Storm drone features 8 rotors, 40.7lb payload capacity, 50mph top speed, and 15-minute flight time, as well as Ronin 2, Master Wheels, and Force Pro support and…you know…its own film crew through DJI’s aerial cinematography service, dubbed DJI Studio.
Studio and the Storm, however, go hand-in-hand. In fact, according to The Verge, the drone itself isn’t even for sale but rather used by DJI’s trained professionals that you hire to go out and capture aerials for you.
