The 737 Max is undergoing severe wet runway testing in Montana. They have started to use commercially available drones with cameras to give them a better view of the testing. Boeing have used drones to capture aerial footage of its jets before and this seams like a natural progressing of using them to capture video of things happening during testing from angles they normally wouldn't be able to capture. Probably one of the only times you'll see a flying drone near a commercial jet under power.

they kept showing DJI quads probably a cheap simple way to get data and if something goes wrong not a major loss or damage to the plane

They are basically the same thing but it looked like a Dji Phanotom 4 Pro to be specific. Boeing referred to it as a UAS.
