Yuneec International has announced the availability of its all-new Breeze First-Person View Controller, creating a new means to pilot the Breeze flying camera. The Breeze FPV Controller is available at a suggested retail price of $69.99.
The Breeze FPV Controller provides pilots with an alternative flying experience. The Breeze has relied on a smartphone controller to date. This controller will provide pilots with a more conventional drone flying experience (e.g. you can use joysticks to control the flight of the drone). The controller comes with a pair of goggles for an FPV experience.
The portable game controller connects to the users smart device via Bluetooth and enables users to accurately control Breeze with physical joysticks and buttons. It is compatible with the Breeze Cam mobile application on iOS (8.0 and above) and Android (4.4 and above) devices, giving pilots the ability to operate with joysticks, while the smart device is turned into the display screen held by the headset for a first-person perspective via the Breeze onboard 4K camera. The Breeze FPV Controller features two view modes: FPV Mode and Normal Mode. Pilots can view images through the FPV Goggles or from their smart devise placed on the controller.
“At Yuneec, our engineers are always pushing the envelope to develop creative solutions that deliver the best experience for the consumer,” said Yu Tian, chief executive officer of Yuneec International. “The Breeze FPV controller enhances the flying experience for Yuneec pilots by literally putting them in the driver’s seat of their drone. While operating the Breeze, they’ll have more confidence, greater perspective and more creative possibilities at their disposal.”
The Breeze is a flying camera designed to take high resolution aerial photos and videos of the consumer. Its compact size makes the Breeze easy to transport and allows it to easily fly both indoors and outdoors. The Breeze is intuitively controlled by a mobile device as well as the new Breeze FPV Controller. The “Breeze Cam” app includes five automated flight modes. Once users complete their flight, they can download the aerial photos and videos instantly through the Breeze Cam app to share across their favorite social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and WhatsApp.
