3D Robotics Unleashes Quadcopter Drone

Drones have been around for quite some time now and the demand for better technology just keeps increasing. Solo, which partnered with GoPro finally managed to create a self driven drone when 3D robotics finally unleashed the Quadcopter drone that comes with full in-flight camera control. This camera manages to deliver live HD streaming to various devices including a mobile phone.

The first step was to create sensors that enabled the drone to function independently and accurately. Solo managed to bring the concept to life without any flaws. The integration of GoPros and Solo brought together some of the best technology which helped in a fully functional drone packed with some of the latest features.

The drone has an on board Linux computer which helps it to function effectively while on flight. It can efficiently run various applications for better and smoother functioning. This drone also comes with a long distance broadband connection which helps transfer data, images and videos in no time at all. The artificial intelligence that is added to this drone manages to track correct information and makes the drone ride worthwhile. When 3D robotics unleashed the Quadcopter drone, they had a few features in mind which they’ve managed to incorporate well.

The main reason GoPro collaborated with the drone is because it is known to manufacture some of the best cameras. These cameras come with an built-in Wi-Fi setting and although the connection isn’t that strong, it manages to work well considering the drone also has a built-in broadband internet connection.

One can control the drone from over 800 meters and it's easy to change the camera settings every now and then. One of the best noted features that every person is eagerly waiting for is the HD video function which no other drone currently has to offer.  

Solo has also added two Linux computers the drone - one on the Quadcopter and the other on the controller. This is another unique feature which is currently only available with this model.

This drone can now capture shots from places which are rare and are impossible for humans to access. One of the most noted feature of this drone is that since it comes with a built-in artificial intelligence system, it's not necessary for a person to control the drone. It can fly independently without the use of the controller and will still manage to capture images and videos which are beautiful and rare.

This device ensures it focuses on the user in the right manner and it understands where and how it can get the right shots. The controller too comes with functions that enable aerial photography shots in the best possible manner. This drone comes with an app store that enables users to enhance the images and videos captured. One doesn't have to invest too much money to ensure the drone functions perfectly, and considering that this is the only device that enables live HD streaming it is worth the investment. While 3D robotics has unleashed what the Quadcopter drone will look like, it is all set to hit global markets by July and will be available at $999. The Solo controller is available at $400.
