Vancouver, BC., July 18, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Draganfly Inc. (NASDAQ: DPRO) (CSE: DPRO) (FSE: 3U8A) (“Draganfly” or the “Company”), an award-winning, industry-leading drone solutions and systems developer, is pleased to announce has developed the Starling X.2 drone digital display messaging platform with its partner Promo Drone, a San Diego-based digital display drone company.

Draganfly was selected by Promo Drone to develop and manufacture the next generation of their Public Safety & Advertising system, the Starling X.2. Draganfly’s experienced Engineering and Production teams designed and developed the Starling X.2 in collaboration with Promo Drone, an industry leader relating to Drone Advertising & Publicity. This development brings together the expertise of both companies, and the Starling X.2 represents a cutting-edge integration that will enhance outdoor messaging capabilities.

With its innovative features and capabilities, the Starling X.2 will offer versatile rapid-response messaging and aerial advertising to communicate and promote in various sectors, including public safety, emergency response, outdoor events, advertising, marketing, and fan-centric experiences.

Draganfly’s Commander 3 XL airframe will integrate with Promo Drone’s video display technology, which includes ultra-bright LED display panels. This combination creates an aerial messaging system that captures attention with its remarkable visibility. This platform can be deployed to communicate critical information about impending natural disasters, rally points, missing persons, and other critical notifications, enhancing awareness and preparedness.

“I’m enthusiastic about the development of the Starling X.2 and the positive impact it will have during times of need,” said Jamar Williams, Founder and CEO of Promo Drone. “Partnership with Draganfly and their ability to design, prototype and manufacture new products helped us develop the next generation of the Promo Drone platform. Their ability to provide comprehensive value, from product development to marketing and administrative infrastructure, is key to achieving our goal of providing customers with awareness and preparedness through our innovative platform.”

“The Starling X.2 opens up exciting possibilities for outdoor messaging and will enable eye-catching visuals that can effectively reach and engage large audiences,” said Cameron Chell, President and CEO of Draganfly. “The Commander 3 XL is the ideal airframe to integrate this innovative technology as it was designed for easy assembly and rapid deployment. Draganfly is proud to partner with industry leaders like Promo Drone in the development and manufacturing of UAV technologies that enhance public safety.”

The Starling X.2 will be released in 2024, with preorders available in August 2023.
