With the addition of the DJI Phantom 3 Standard, Phantom 3 4K and Inspire 1 Pro, Airnest says it has doubled the number of drones with which its flying app is compatible.
Airnest is currently offering its third-party app for these drones for a promotional rate of $9.99. The app also works with the DJI Phantom 3 Pro and Advanced models, as well as the Inspire 1.
With Airnest, users can plan a flight and launch the drone into the air in just three easy steps, the company explains. Once airborne, the drone follows the flight path and captures photos or video.
DJI began allowing partners to develop apps for their drones only recently, says Airnest, which adds that this software is now the only third-party app available for the Phantom 3 Standard and 4K and Inspire 1 drones.
“So many first-time drone operators bought the Phantom 3 Standard over the holidays, and we’re thrilled to offer our app so they can start getting the shots they want right out of the box,” says Ben Brautigam, co-founder and CEO of Airnest. “On the flip side, we’re excited to see what pro-level drone pilots will do with our app and the Inspire 1 Pro when they’re freed up from the hassles of flying and can focus solely on the perfect shot.”
