Dhoni launches Droni, a Made-In-India camera drone

Chennai: India’s ex-cricket great Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who popularized the ‘helicopter shot’, on Monday launched a quadcopter consumer camera drone named ‘Droni’.
The made-in-India camera drone with advanced features is manufactured by Garuda Aerospace, of which Dhoni is the Brand Ambassador.
The product will be available in the market by the end of 2022, said company’s Founder-CEO Agnishwar Jayaprakash.
“Garuda Aerospace is focussed on creating high-impact solutions for numerous purposes. Our Droni drone is indigenous and can be used for different surveillance purposes. It is efficient, seamless and high quality from a tech and build standpoint. By providing Make-in-India drones, we hope to not just become Atma Nirbhar for the demand of drones, but also place India on the global map as a hub for superior quality, safe and secure drone and drone-based solutions,” he said.
The event also witnessed the launch of a new ‘Kisan Drone’ that is aimed at the agriculture sector, particularly in spraying applications. This battery-powered drone is capable of carrying out agricultural pesticide spraying over a land area of 30 acres per day.
Speaking at the event, Dhoni recalled that he had taken keen interest in agriculture during the Covid-19 lockdown. He emphasized the role of drones for agriculturalists.
President of Indian Drone Association and Former Wing Commander in the Indian Airforce Anand Kumar Das said, “I am extremely delighted to serve on a platform where industry stakeholders connect to gain insights about the drone industry and happy to organize the Global Drone Expo with Garuda Aerospace. This platform will play a significant role in promoting the drone industry and foster growth.”
The Global Drone Expo witnessed 1500 plus participants from 14 international drone companies and representatives over 28 states and union territories which attracted investors, youth and stakeholders and outlined a path forward for the drone industry.
Industry experts, farmers, dealers, distributors, people from banking and insurance sectors, education-financial institutions, government representatives, pilots and various investors were provided a platform to gain insights about the drone culture and the various possibilities associated with the use of drones.
