"In a few weeks, the city of Woodbury will lay out its plans at a City Council meeting to buy and fly a drone for police and other purposes, hoping to join a growing number of municipalities that rely on drones. The city plans to spend $39,000 for its drone, a DJI Matrice 300 RTK with a flight time of 55 minutes, high-quality video and swappable batteries to allow sustained use, said (Commander John) Altman."
