DJI store opens in central Auckland

DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, has officially opened its newest retail frontage — a 65-plus square-meter store in Auckland’s Eden Terrace. It’s the first DJI Authorized Retail Store in New Zealand.

The centrepiece of the store is an 8m2 flight cage, where customers can learn from drone pilots, have their questions answered by technical support staff, and see DJI drones in action.

On display, and for sale, will be DJI’s full range of aerial platforms and handheld products, including Spark, a new and easy-to-use mini camera-drone that lifts off from the palm of your hand. Customers can also try on the DJI Goggles for a fun and immersive drone-flying experience with the Phantom 4 Advanced or Mavic Pro.

“We are very excited to work with our dealer partner to expand DJI’s retail footprint in New Zealand and to provide a place where people can discover and experience the joys of flight. Whether it’s learning how to operate a drone for the very first time or getting inspiration from other aerial photographers, they will be amazed at what this technology can do for them,” said Kevin On, DJI’s director of communication.

“From its volcanic plateau, miles of coastline with gorgeous sandy beaches, to the magnificent glaciers, you’ll find a variety of awesome landscapes in New Zealand, making it an ideal canvas for creators, artists, and photographers,” he added.

Head to 96 New North Road, Eden Terrace, Auckland, Monday to Saturday, to check out the store for yourself.
