Frank Wang, now one of China’s most famous entrepreneurs, founded DJI in 2006. The company started as a spin-off from Frank’s days as a robotics engineer in college, and he actually built some of DJI’s first product prototypes while still attending classes. Although it took until 2013 for DJI to release their first drone model into the marketplace, the initial launch was a huge success. Building upon their newly acquired customer base, DJI then launched the Phantom 3 and several other product lines. Currently, DJI manages more than five different brands. Many of the company’s drones come complete with propeller guards, extra lenses, and other accessories.
