The Creation of DJI

DJI drones are the most talked about and sought out drones on the consumer market. As fans of DJI drones we know why we love the UAVs so much. DJI keeps the always keeps the consumer in mind while creating their drones. They don’t limit themselves in their creations; they have quadcopters, fixed-wing drones, octocopters, mini drones, and more. All of DJI drones equip themselves with the latest features in technology. They sport RTH (return to home), GPS/GLONASS, FPV, and the best camera drones. This, and so much more, is why we buy DJI drones and fly them. There is a lot to DJI that makes their UAVs so successful.

DJI was founded in 2006 by Frank Wang Tao and his classmates in Shenzhen, China. DJI established relations with the US after 2010, to get their drones in US markets. In 2012 DJI came out with the their first drone bundle, which included propellers, frame, gimbal, software, and remote control. And in 2013 DJI released the Phantom. Every year the company’s profit has grown. In 2014 their sales grew to 500 million and have since gone over 1 billion.

DJI has a global staff of 11,000 with offices in 17 cities.


In just 10 years, DJI has built a billion-dollar company. This can’t be done unless their products are truly superior (which they are) and they continue to improve and grow. I predict they will keep being DJI, especially with the new employee Roger Luo.

Roger Luo was chosen by founder and CEO Frank Wang to lead DJI in international business relations; to oversee and focus on product management and business relations with international dealers. Roger Luo’s resume includes being a software and hardware engineer for Apple, Siemens, and Foxconn. Luo was promoted from Vice President of Operations at DJI.


DJI is the most popular among drone users who use them for aerial photography, travel, ametur and professional flying. DJI plans to promote their drones for other fields (other than consumer usage). Their big focus is on drones for agriculture.
