2015 is shaping up to be the true Year of Drones and Quadcopters!
The giant Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas is ground zero for many of the new introductions and upgrades in the world of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, drones, multirotors, quadcopters). Soon after CES closes, there are multiple trade shows in the Hobby world which will provide a further peek into what’s new for 2015!
Droneflyers.com will study the field and give our readers a rundown on which announcements are likely to change the quadcopter landscape, which are too little too late, and which are worth completely ignoring (in our opinion).
Here is what we know so far:
DJI – the current leader in consumer level drones is officially introducing their high-end Inspire 1 Quadcopter.

In addition to actually shipping the Inspire 1, DJI is also introducing a new handheld gimbal (camera stabilizer) which adds value to the Inspire proposition – videographers can now take stable footage from both the ground AND the air.
DJI has also hinted at a new Phantom model – but we don’t know yet (as of 1/5).
