The Micro Drone 3.0 was built to be nothing like any other drone by combining expandable modular technology, sensor-assisted flying and a micro-gimbal for live streaming video. It is considered the first fully customizable personal drone.
Vernon Kerswell, founder of Extreme Fliers and maker of the Micro Drone previously stated:
“The step up in technology and features we have packed into Micro Drone 3.0 offers users a taste of things you would find in a high end device. We want Micro Drone 3.0 to be usable by anyone, whether first timers or an adaptable drone for enthusiasts. We’re truly excited to share these innovations with the Indiegogo community.”
“The micro-gimbal will allow the user to control the [Micro Drone 3.0’s] camera remotely and increases video stability. [It is] equipped with tiny servo motors that will allow you to control the angle of the camera on the underbelly of Micro Drone. The HD video camera will now be upgraded to take amazing panning shots from afar while in-flight or in the hovering position.”
Noting its video stability, Vernon explained:
“With its built-in intelligent sensors, the gimbal will maintain a steadier shot while flying, so you do not have to be an expert flier to create amazing video feeds. Further, for all of you interested in First Person View (FPV) with the included DODO Case Virtual reality headset, the gimbal will greatly reduce the motion blur that is traditionally associated with it.”
The Micro Gimbal’s specs are the following:
- 2-Axis Stabilization
- Rotate Camera Angle
- Magnetic Connection
- Tiny Micro Servos
- Panning Shots
- Weight: 10g without camera
In regards to the Micro Gimbal’s attachments, Kerswell added:
“Over the past few weeks, we have been producing a smartphone holder that attaches to the Micro Drone 3.0 Professional Remote Control. This is a removable clip that attaches to the remote control that will allow the user to watch the live video stream that your Micro Drone is capture in real-time on your remote control device for added convenience.”
The smartphone controller attachment was noted to fit all major smartphones including iPhone 5/6+ and other phones of that size.
The Micro Drone 3.0’s campaign is set to close on Friday.
