Draganfly has joined forces with Promo Drone, a San Diego-based digital display drone company, to create the Starling X.2 drone digital display messaging platform. Draganfly was selected by Promo Drone to design and manufacture the next generation of their Public Safety & Advertising system, the Starling X.2.
The Starling X.2 offers versatile rapid-response messaging and aerial advertising, making it suitable for various sectors, including public safety, emergency response, outdoor events, advertising, marketing, and fan-centric experiences. The platform integrates Draganfly's Commander 3 XL airframe with Promo Drone's video display technology, featuring ultra-bright LED display panels.
Jamar Williams, Founder and CEO of Promo Drone, expressed enthusiasm for the Starling X.2 and its potential impact during critical situations.
"Partnership with Draganfly and their ability to design, prototype and manufacture new products helped us develop the next generation of the Promo Drone platform. Their ability to provide comprehensive value, from product development to marketing and administrative infrastructure, is key to achieving our goal of providing customers with awareness and preparedness through our innovative platform," said Williams.
Cameron Chell, President and CEO of Draganfly, highlighted the exciting possibilities the Starling X.2 offers for outdoor messaging and engaging large audiences. "The Commander 3 XL is the ideal airframe to integrate this innovative technology as it was designed for easy assembly and rapid deployment. Draganfly is proud to partner with industry leaders like Promo Drone in the development and manufacturing of UAV technologies that enhance public safety," said Chell.
The Starling X.2 is slated for release in 2024, with preorders available in August 2023.
