Seagate today announced the launch of a new hard drive that’s meant for drone owners. The drive itself is called DJI Fly Drive which should leave no doubt in your mind that it’s meant for customers with drones made by DJI. With its integrated USB Type-C cable, the DJI Fly Drive offers up to 2TB of storage which will be ample for hours and hours worth of drone footage. It does have something which sets it apart from most external hard drives.
The Seagate DJI Fly Drive features a built-in microSD card slot which isn’t something that you normally find on an external hard drive. Seagate says that it has built a microSD card slot into the hard drive so that users can quickly transfer drone footage to the hard drive while they’re out and about.
The microSD card slot is rated for cards up to UHS-II speeds. There’s also a built-in protective bumper which should help protect the DJI Fly Drive against drops and bumps which will be inevitable when you take it on the road with you.
This product is the result of the partnership that DJI and Seagate announced back in January at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017. The DJI Fly Drive external hard drive will go on sale later this year in the summer for $120.
