The APM-based Quanum line from HobbyKing now has a cool new addition: a FollowMe copter with GPS armband and watch controller. Comes with 4K camera for $450, which is an amazing price (half or a third of the price of the Kickstarter FollowMe drones such as Hexo+ or Airdog).
Easy to use, the FollowMe uses the most up to date technology which not only controls the flying but also takes care of the camera stabilisation and operation, making sure the super sharp 4K action camera keeps you squarely in the frame every second.
Controlled completely by a watch worn by the user, with auto-take off, auto land, auto return to home (launch point), circle shooting mode, hover shooting mode, pan shot mode and of course follow me mode, the FollowMe is as user-friendly as it gets. Once you have put on the watch and the FollowMe Tracker, you just turn it on, select a flight mode, press a button to take off and then you can get on that bike, skateboard or running track with your own personal drone following you and recording all of the action as it happens.
With an almost "launch and forget" capability the FollowMe is the ideal aerial action camera partner for solo action sports videographers. You don't need a second person to operate it and coupled with footage from personal cameras fitted to helmets or equipment, it will add that special dimension to action videos/movies like nothing else can. All your gear is stored in an attractive red carry case.
The FollowMe is the ultimate personal drone for the aspiring videographer who doesn't just want to record the action, they want to be part of it too!
