After the success of their GDU Byrd Drone, the company is back with their new O2 series of drones that seem to be proving tough competition to the DJI Mavic Pro Drone. Directly targeted at Mavic fans, this new drone incorporates some of the familiar features from DII along with advanced modes and a portable design.
O2 vs. O2 Plus
Most of the features between the two drones are the same except for some differences. The first difference is that the O2 uses a 5.8 GHz remote controller and features a range of 1 km, while the O2 Plus uses a 2.4 GHz controlled and has a range of 7 km.
Another difference is that the GDU 02 has an inbuilt storage capacity of 16 GB, while the GDU 02 Plus has a double capacity at 32 GB.
