Micro Drone 3.0 is a small drone that captures HD video thanks to the world’s smallest micro gimbal, a tiny robotic arm, which stabilises the camera in the air.
The product is the first fully customisable device, combining advanced features with aerial capabilities.
The third evolution from UK based company Extreme Fliers, Micro Drone 3.0 is designed to work straight from the box, is easy-to-use and comes at an affordable price. Micro Drone 3.0’s modular design offers additional functions, which are engineered to snap on with magnets. The modules are coupled with a sleek, robust frame that has slide in batteries and no exposed wires.
Micro Drone 3.0’s core technology is based around a central proprietary flight controller that gives it smart orientation and the ability to fly outside in winds of up to 45mph thanks to its on board sensors. The device also offers three expansion packs of varying sizes to build upon the original frame. The team are also building custom designs that allow the use of 3D printing to create new form factors for the drone along with unique shapes.
The Micro Drone 3.0 can be flown with multiple devices, including a smartphone (iOS and Android) and a traditional handset for longer distance. It has some fun features too, with just a flick of the switch or shake of the smartphone, Micro Drone 3.0 can invert 180 degrees, to land upside down on the ceiling or stick onto a vertical surface.
Vernon Kerswell, founder of the Micro Drone, said: “The step up in technology and features we have packed into Micro Drone 3.0 offers users a taste of things you would find in a high end device. We want Micro Drone 3.0 to be usable by anyone, whether first timers or an adaptable drone for enthusiasts. We’re truly excited to share these innovations with the Indiegogo community.”
Micro Drone 3.0 is available to back on Indiegogo starting at $150. Special pricing includes the Drone, Camera and First Person View headset. Additional accessories such as gimbal, batteries, expansion packs and propellers will also be available to order.
