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.

The drone was unveiled at the International Drone Conference and Exposition in Vegas, Nevada. The O2 Series consist of a basic version and a Plus version – GDU O2 Drone and the GDU O2 Plus Drone.
