PowerVision’s futuristic drone with its revolutionary egg-shaped design and powerful autonomous flight modes is packed with a ton of amazing features. From its Maestro gesture-based controller to its long-range real-time video streaming distance of 3.1 miles, the PowerEgg drone is taking the tech world by storm.
Described as “the most intuitive consumer drone,” the PowerEgg is portable (fits in a backpack) with collapsible wings and retractable legs; making your 360-degree panoramic shots all the more captivating. With a gesture remote, you can easily turn this drone into a flying egg. As you can already tell, this is no ordinary drone. Here are some of the features that make this drone a technological marvel and way beyond the competition.
Gesture Recognition Remote
Catering to both the tech-savvy drone flyer and the newbie, the PowerEgg comes with a “one touch take-off, one touch return home” controller and a traditional two-handed joystick controller. The user-friendly remote, called the Maestro, can be learned in 60 seconds, according to CEO Wally Zheng and has gesture-recognition. As an industry first, there is a few “wow factors” that are worth mentioning: For one, the Maestro has a “pause feature,” and with the touch of a button, the operator is able to freeze the drone mid-air like an emergency brake. It’ll just hover and wait for its next command.
Concerned about the PowerEgg nose-diving into your 14-year old during a family picnic? The smart maximum distance mode protects the user with a pre-set safety radius around the controller. In other words, it’s a safety fence to reduce the risk from human operator error.
Robust Interface/Application Software
So what can you do with the PowerEgg’s smart app and its user-friendly interface? For one, it’s your main command center. The app, both iOS and Android compatible, controls your landing gear, tells you where you are, how long you’ve been in the air, how high your drone is, your drone’s battery life, how many satellites your connected to, etc.
Autonomous Flight Modes
The reason people love drones: the autonomous camera capabilities. PowerEgg has four autonomous flight mode options, each one controllable from a smart device. The Orbit Mode tells the aircraft to circle around a pre-set target at a desired distance and speed. For example, this mode is ideal for someone interested in snapping aerial photos of their house prior to putting it on the market. The Cable Cam Mode tells the PowerEgg to fly to distinct points on a pre-planned path. Sort of like the fly-by aerial camera shots mapping a golf course prior to a major tournament. It follows the course line to illustrate the players shot tracker. The Follow-Me Mode is for capturing the adventure sports action. The drone follows the target down a specific path at a specific speed and distance – ideal for capturing mountain bike trailblazing.
So what’s the purpose of having all these power modes? In short: to capture awesome aerial shots without worrying about the flight path. That’s is up to you to control. With its integrated 3-axis Gimbal camera feature and long distance HD-quality video streaming, the PowerEgg drone captures crystal clear panoramic shots and smooth video footage. The drone’s Optical Positioning System can only be described as groundbreaking. Using a duo-positioning system (GPS/BeiDou), the PowerEgg is able to shoot in both indoor and outdoor environments and in all sorts of conditions. Add on a max flight time of 23 minutes, and you have yourself the most innovative drone on the market today.
