New images of what looks to be a RoboMaster branded RC plane have appeared online, suggesting DJI is expanding its educational robots. The new patent images look to be the tail section of an airplane, meaning it could also be modular.
As predicted last week, DJI released the RoboMaster EP on March 9th. This is DJI’s second educational robot and it is compatible with multi-party hardware, supports multiple software platforms, and has an open SDK.
It seems that DJI is about to introduce a new DJI RoboMaster soon. Today, DJI leaks photos that show parts of this new educational, modular and remote-controlled device. No drone, it seems. Sorry. It is rumored that the release date for this new DJI product is March 9th.
