6 drone companies to watch in 2016


French drone manufacturer Parrot PARRO, +1.87% appears to be dominating the market for fixed-wing drones, which can cover larger distances and typically fly for a longer period of time than quadcopter-type drones.

On the “prosumer” end of things, Parrot’s $1,300 Disco drone can fly for up to 45 minutes, making it ideal for photographers who have to cover large distances to get a photo.

For enterprise customers, SenseFly, which Parrot acquired in 2012, this week launched its eBee SQ fixed-wing agricultural drone. The eBee SQ is intended for crop consultants, growers and researchers to be able to gather precise images of their land over a large area.
