    Hobby unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have allowed more people than ever to take to the skies. While not everyone is excited about the prospect, Chinese drone manufacturer DJI has taken the next step in making drones accessible by building a drone arena and training ground in South Korea.
    The 1,395-sqft. arena is set in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, 49 kilometers south of Seoul and includes many of the things a prospective drone pilot would look for in a training facility.

    The tracks include LED-lit rings with matching seats for the pilots, as well as space for spectators with multiple screens showing the action from the drone’s point of view. The warehouse containing DJI’s arena is also built for safety, with nets that prevent any wayward UAVs from escaping. A workshop area allows the pilots to maintain and recharge their drones to keep them in proper working order.
