Batteries

For many pilots, around 20 minutes’ flight is far from fun. Especially for professional aerial photographers, keeping 3 or 4 spare batteries in stock is a must, as you don’t want your flight time constrained by a lack of batteries. So bring along a few extra battery packs and soar above the sky for longer.

Propellers

When your drone runs out of juice, you can recharge and continue to fly. But once your propellers are damaged, you have to cancel the flight immediately and replace them. Propellers are usually the first thing in a prang to break due to their fragile nature. So, just like having a spare tire in your car, keep a few prop sets on hand and thank yourself later. Plus, it costs only a few dollars, making it a no-brainer deal! Remember to order them with your drone so that you can save on the shipping fees.

Propeller Guards

Just mount some propeller guards to your drone to ease all your flying fears, protecting you, your drone and bystanders. Every drone has its own specially designed propeller guards which are highly reliable and easy to use. Undoubtedly, a must-have for all new pilots!

Batteries Charging Hub

It’s smart, quick, and reliable as it can charge multiple intelligent flight batteries simultaneously. Its intelligent functions allow it to power up the Intelligent Flight Batteries in sequence according to their power levels, from high to low. So get all the power you need with a charging hub!

Carrying Bags

DJI’s rucksack can securely carry the drone and all its accessories; some can also hold a laptop, all designed for efficiency, practicality, durability, and comfort.
