The Cleo Drone
The second selfie drone to make it to this list of most innovative drones is The Cleo Drone. The Cleo Drone takes a major detour in design from that of the Hover Camera which is rectangular and portrays a boxy look. The edges of The Cleo are more rounded and smooth. Shrouded Propellers are used by the drone to prevent harm or injury to the hands of the user from the blades.
The shroud also performs the function of protecting the propellers from harm during flight or crashes. The drone also switches out the use of 4 separate propellers for the propeller design found on toy helicopters and this means that control and stability of the drone might be tricky. Since there is no use of other controls for the purpose of maneuvering the stability of the drone, you might have to show caution when using the drone in tricky locations. The technology made use of is vaporware and should be available during spring for order.
The Power UP FPV
Another innovative drone technology is the PowerUP FPV which is a product from PowerUp Toys. PowerUp Toys are known for the different types of gadgets such as paper airplanes fitted with propellers that differ from the norm. Such is the case for the new PowerUp FPV which has two propellers alongside a live stream of video from the drone from the FPV to the smartphone of the owner. This is an incredible tool if you’re using your drone for film production.
The smartphone can also be used to control the planes and as a result enhances the chances of radio controlled flight. Unlike its previous products the PowerUp 2.0 and the PowerUp 3.0 which are available on the open market and Amazon, the FPV at the moment can be gotten from the PowerUp website for a price of $200. Although the manufacturer concluded the acceptance stage for preorders late January and started shipping out the orders in February, there have been reviews given by customers on the drone technology which has been majorly positive.
The Hover Camera Passport
Social media has a major influence on the design of this camera as the aim of the maker Zero Zero Robotics with the design of the Hover Camera Passport was to create the first ever selfie drone. Social media is constantly made use of for the purpose of uploading or downloading selfies so why not try taking the selfies with an aerial camera. The drone has been around for quite a while now but just so you know, it is pretty expensive and will cost you about $600.
Also, the only way to get your hands on this nifty drone technology would buy directly from the manufacturer Zero Zero Robotics or from B&H Photo. The technology the camera makes use of is pretty standard for a quadcopter but instead of the usual angles, you get a rectangular grate. For the size of the drone, the camera performs quite well and provides quality pictures as expected for a device that sells itself as being intended for the purpose of selfies.
