Looks like a cross between the Parrot Bebop and the Sensefly eBee (also a Parrot subsidiary). Indeed, that's almost exactly what it is. Announced at CES today.
Every plane I've owned eventually nosed in and crashed. I would expect that lens won't last long...
I think it has a lens cover. I am just writing up my thoughts on it here. At the end of the day its exactly what we were all trying to build 10 years ago only better! I want one!
Looks great! Can't wait to put arduplane on it! :-)
how to implement that digital gimbal, i think zynq could do it.
Mostly I liked the idea that any RC transmitter is compatible :)
Since it is based on the same hardware as the bebop, ArduPlane port will be pretty straightforward. I will try that as soon as I get one myself...
Interesting but the marketing target makes me wonder:
-either it is targeting the leisure market (fpv) and it is certainly not competitive versus affordable current solutions
-either it is targeting the prosumer or pro market but then it is not the right platform nor design (can't embark additional cameras and sensors)
This fuzzy market positioning does not seem coherent. Did I miss something?
