YONGIN, Aug. 16 (Korea Bizwire) – The world’s leading drone manufacturer, DJI, is opening the world’s first indoor drone arena in Yongin, about 50km south of the South Korean capital.

“We’re opening the indoor arena in South Korea after judging that the market has huge potential for growth,” said a DJI official. 

The venue is open to 12 people at a time for a three-hour period, according to the company. It also has a racing facility for camera-equipped UAVs that pilots can maneuver while wearing goggles that stream live feed images from the drones.

The arena will further offer training programs for beginners, as well as a maintenance and repair facility that visitors can take advantage of.

DJI currently claims 70 percent of the global drone market.
