HeliDirect – a hobby-class e-retailer focused on high-performance RC helicopters, parts and accessories – says it is expanding its product offerings and support services for the rapidly growing prosumer multi-rotor unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market.
This includes products from DJI, Aerial Freaks, Tarot and XPS, says HeliDirect.
‘Scores of hobby helicopter pilots, along with commercial pilots, are contacting us and walking into our retail store trying to learn how the multi-rotor helicopters they are reading about in the media are being used in small businesses,’ says Sam Le, president of the Malden, Mass.-based company.
“Our customer and technical support teams – many already hobby pilots – can advise new entrepreneurs with cost-effective and reliable solutions, whatever their budget,” he adds.
HeliDirect already sells and supports higher-end multi-rotor UAV products that can be used in commercial applications. Over the coming months, the company says, it will work more closely with several UAV product vendors to increase pre-sales and post-sales customer and technical support.
