DJI Arena by JDrone Tokyo will launch on Saturday, introducing the Chinese retailer of civilian drones and aerial imaging technology.
It is not only a store, but also offers technical support and even a flying area in its 535sqm arena, to be managed by authorised dealer Japan Circuit in partnership with DJI Japan.
For customers who want to test their skills, the flying area has safety nets and an adjustable circuit, while the retail space will showcase DJI’s full range of consumer, professional and enterprise products.
“As interest around our aerial technology continues to grow, the DJI Arena concept is a new way for us to engage not just hobbyists but also those considering this technology for their work,” says DJI director of brand management and operations Moon Tae-Hyun.
“Having the opportunity to use the remote controller and try out the technology first hand can enrich the customer experience. When people understand how it works or how easy it is to fly, they will discover what the technology can do for them.”
As well as individual and group bookings, the DJI Arena will be available for corporate events, serve as a venue for DJI’s New Pilot Experience Program and host workshops.
Since opening last year, DJI’s first arena, in Yongin, South Korea, has been attracting hobbyists and drone enthusiasts from around the world.
The Tokyo arena is in Katsushika-ku, Hosoda.
