Drone Arena Drone maker DJI is opening its first drone arena—a nearly 1400-square-meter space (about 5 tennis courts) in Korea, just south of Seoul. The space will be indoors, and open to consumers who want to learn how to fly their (presumably DJI) drones. The arena opens in August with LED-lit circuits and safety nets, and also a way to get a first-person view from your drone. Excited? You can book the space for private events.
