HEXO+ Autonomous Drone

Oct 30, 2014

Category: Tech

We’re thinking the 2014 holiday season is gonna feature a lot of drones under the tree for tech lovers who’re ready to take the plunge into this blossoming tech segment. And while the HEXO+ won’t start shipping until next May, it looks like it’s worthy of going on the short list of contenders.

This little guy can autonomously follow and film your action-packed exploits, following all your movements smoothly while keeping you centered in the picture. Just set the framing on your smartphone and the drone does the rest, even flying at a top speed of 45 mph to keep up with you peppy speed walkers out there. The HEXO+ is lightweight (2.2 lbs) and foldable, and yes, you can switch between auto pilot and manual modes. It’s got a GoPro-compatible mount, and the fail-safe software features and six propellers mean a safe landing in case there’s a problem (watch out for that hawk!). [Via | Purchase]
