Hey all
I am a surveyor/engineer by trade and use Leica GPS and surveying equipment, and fly both an inspire and P3 for both works and pleasure. On the grapevine I hear that Leica and DJI have a 'joint venture' and wonder if anyone has more info??

Leica are tight lipped but my guess is a commercial grade UAV being developed??

We use a Service Drone G4 to survey our construction projects and looks like the Leica/DJI partnership will be producing commercial grade UAVs
