Can GDU 02 Cut Into Mavic Market ?
” Chinese drone manufacturer GDU has announced that a new product is coming. We’re not sure what it is yet, but the company has given us a few mysterious clues to decipher. GDU’s most recent drones, the Bryd Premium 1 & 2, have been successful iterations of the Byrd platform. So what features could the new GDU drone have?
The picture below is from the GDU website, and is listed under ‘o2 Preview‘, so we’re guessing that instead of being another drone in the Byrd range, the GDU o2 is going to be the start of a new product line.”
” The ‘7’, ‘3’ and ‘2’ are interesting, and seem to be giving us an idea of the specs and features of GDU’s incoming drone. The 7 in front of the mountain landscape must be related to range. A transmission range of 7km would make sense, vastly improving the range of the company’s current drones and putting the new quad on a par with the DJI Mavic.
The 3 in front of the gimbal image could be related to it being a 3-axis gimbal. The camera will shoot video in 4k. The most interesting thing about this is that it could be a move away from one of GDU’s most popular selling points, its drones’ modularity.”
