Catering to the increasing need of portable pocket drone of the market, ZEROTECH has developed a foldable drone with 4k imaging capabilities and 18 minutes of flight time. As a new member of Pocket Drone family, Hesper is compact yet powerful as it is packed with cutting-edge technologies. The longer flight time and controller available make it more powerful for aerial snaps. Might be usefulto note that the longer flight time they refer to is liekly relative to the Dobby drone which has a flight time of approximately 10 minutes. The Hesper comes with its own controller. The Dobby relied on an app downloaded to a smartphone.
“Drone selfies and easy aerial photography are becoming necessary in every drone owner’s life. The average consumer wants to record their memories anytime and anywhere, especially during their travels. Hesper is capable of taking quick aerial photos without comprising imaging quality,” said Echo Lin, communication director of ZEROTECH.
ZEROSPACE Drone Formation Dance for creating eye-catching moments
Formation flying is a hot trend in the drone industry, according to the firm. While popular, the high cost of such technology has been a key barrier to entry with few companies actually harnessing “formation technology”.
With consumers and small businesses in mind, ZEROTECH has introduced ZEROSPACE, the first drone formation flying product based on an advanced computer vision positioning system for use at special events, festivals and more.
Here is an example from ZEROTECH
ZEROSPACE Drone Formation Dance Set comes with eight DOBBY drones. You can choose 3 kinds of formation components as 2/4/8 drones with 10 flight patterns. The company states in a release that “all the flights can be controlled effortlessly by one person using the APP.” We suspect “effortlessly” may be a relative term in this instance. All purchases come with the necessary accessories, batteries and adapters. As additional flight patterns become available, users will be able to download these formations through the mobile application.
ZEROTECH technology enables both indoor and outdoor flight capabilities. While outdoor flight relies primarily on GPS coordinates, indoor flight is more complex as it requires more sophisticated intelligence such as the use of computer vision positioning technology.
Aligned with their brand vision of “making technology available to everyone”, ZEROSPACE is affordable and provides users with an intuitive mobile app for flight control. The product is pre-programmed, enabling users to get the technology ready in under 10 minutes, and in just one click, activate a synchronized performance with a dreamlike galaxy stage effect. Besides the standard set, ZEROSPACE offers tailor made formations for special events, view the tailor made formationflight video for spring festival gala 2017.
Lastly, ZEROTECH has reduced the price of its DOBBY drone and has added an additional battery. The price is now $349 and the product is available from Amazon, B&H Photo, BestBuy, and Walmart.
