This new kid on the block was spotted here: http://www.cbs8.com/story/26329653/local-companies-test-drones-in-w...
Who knew, there is a skunk works at 3DR
I thought as well that the new kid otb was relating to this guy, CG, the new ambassador of 3DR ?
Looks like new tall landing gear, a new placement for the telemetry antenna, new prop attachments, and who knows what else!
Maybe 4S with better motor/props? Probably longer arms since selling off the older ones cheap?
Hopefully they provide a nice upgrade kit, since the current iris is not overly amazing once gimbal and gopro attached (which was one of its selling points)... its ok with front go pro though.
Testing Gopro aerodynamics to greater detail than ever before.
I fly with the old style Iris quite a bit for testing and I'll tell you, the #1 thing to make it better is to put a 4S battery in it. It turns into an absolute rocket especially when you leave the gimbal off it. I wish I had a link to a 4S battery that fits into the IRIS so everyone could easily order it but I got mine from a friend.
Did you have to change the motor/props once switching to 4S?
Very cool. Thanks for sharing. I hope they will provide an upgrade kit as I just purchased my 3DR Iris 4 - 5 weeks ago and have already experienced the reported issues.
