If you’ve always wanted to get shots of great scenery, snowboarding sessions, or your time hitting the waves but didn’t want to deal with the hassle of learning how to control an expensive and complicated drone, then you might be interested in the Staaker Auto-Follow drone.
While a lot of drones have auto-follow as a part of a bevy of other different functions, Staaker puts this one up front and center. While using a simple controller, users can tell this drone to follow them in 5 different ways. It can simply follow behind you, circle, compass around, hover on a specific spot or take a look at scenery. Thanks to the drone’s top speed of 50 miles per hour and an integrated artificial intelligence, it can actually anticipate your different moves and capture amazing footage even when you’re speeding downhill. Setup is easy with this drone, taking only 30 seconds, making it so you can focus on having a good time and showing what you got instead of trying to fine-tune everything. For those who find themselves in the mountains or riding in the rain a lot – you’ll be happy to hear that this drone is totally weatherproof and capable of shooting even in heavy downpours. When these are made available later this year it’ll retail for $1,800. [Purchase]
