While there are more than a few drone makers out there, it’s safe to say that DJI has the market pretty much cornered. The company makes drones for all sorts of users, ranging from the hobbyist, the enthusiast, and even professionals who might need drones for site inspections. However Parrot isn’t letting DJI hog all that market share.

The company has recently announced that they will be launching new drones aimed at professional users. One of the drones that was recently announced is the Bebop-Pro Thermal. This is a drone aimed at small-medium businesses and as its name suggests, will come with a thermal camera made by FLIR, and this will cost $1,500.

However for companies that might need something a bit more robust, Parrot has you covered as well with the Bluegrass. This is a drone aimed at agricultural businesses that comes equipped with a multispectral sensor that helps capture image data at specific frequencies. There is also flight planning software that will allow farmers to monitor their fields without having to go out there in person, or send someone else as the Bluegrass drone is said to be capable of cover 74 acres on a single charge.

It is clear that these drones are aimed for very specific uses and not general use for consumers. Both drones are expected to be made available this coming November.
