This Wheeled DJI FPV Drone Concept Would Revolutionize Remote Filmmaking

Since its founding in 2006, DJI has effectively cornered the consumer drone segment — even against some pretty stiff competition from the likes of GoPro, Parrot, and Hubsan. That being said, the Chinese tech giant has yet to take its high-flying expertise to terra firma, and it’s a shame because the untapped market is ripe for the picking.

However, were DJI to produce a wheeled, remotely piloted vehicle (RPV), we’d expect it to look a lot like this concept penned by Parth Kashikar. For though most robot dolly setups require both a gimbal operator as well as a pilot, Kashikar’s creation allows the user to take control of their filmmaking by way of first-person video and some 6-axis DJI headset hardware. In practice, this means that a move of one’s head results in a corresponding pan, tilt, or rotation of the camera arm. And in order to ensure that shots can be easily replicated, it also comes with pre-programmed motion recording paths. Riding on a large, low-slung platform with a modular body shell that’s as sleek as it is robust, we can only hope that DJI decides to build one of its own. Check it out below.
