PRODRONE will become the world's number one industrial drone company with unrivaled technology and "JAPAN QUALITY".
Our vision is "Revolutionary Drones for Professionals", and we are always delivering revolutionary drones to the world.
We have developed a large drone equipped with two robotic arms, a L-shaped infrastructure inspection drone, and a gigantic drone for a famous amusement park that was impossible for other drone manufacturers around the world to develop.
PRODRONE manufactures and sells world-class industrial drones to drone service providers around the world, based on our top-class Japanese development experience. We offer a full range of industrial drones, from high quality, highly functional, highly stable basic platform drones, to full scratch development of prototypes that match your needs, to ODMs and mass production supply, to service application development.
PRODRONE will always provide professional support with "Japanese quality" so that you can focus on your own drone service business.

With over 35 years of experience in the development of RC helicopters and drones, we will continue to create new drones that no one has been able to achieve yet.
My greatest pleasure as a developer is to be able to develop drones those were impossible at other companies, and to make our customers happy from the bottom of my heart.
We believe that in order for industrial drones to be prosperous in our society, no dextrous operators will be needed for drone operations. In order for this to happen, thorough safety measures are also essential.
Our goal is to create an era in which "drone robots with full autonomous flight capability will fly in the skies around the world".
