A year ago when 3D Robotics Inc. and DJI were going head to head in the consumer drone market, this idea may have seemed crazy. But today, 3DR has one of the top platforms for processing drone data in the commercial sector, and DJI wants to expand their use cases for the Phantom 4 (for starters) so that it can be used in commercial scenarios. Read this article to learn more about their unlikely partnership, and why it makes so much sense. Meet Mike McGuirt, the newest member of our team. Mike served in the Air Force for 28 years, and has been working more recently as an Aerospace Science Instructor for high school students in Arkansas.

Do you think they have the ability to take on DJI and others in this space?
