If you are in the market for a camera drone that can be easily controlled using your smartphone or tablet device, a new vehicle called the C-mi created by Polyhelo maybe worth more investigation.
The C-mi camera drone is small enough to portable and can be taken to wherever you may want to record footage, and its companion application is equipped with intuitive flight modes for autonomous flying if required.
The C-mi camera drone is capable of either providing a live video stream are capable of interacting with other trackers and drones for multiple viewing angles. Its creators explain a little more about the features and functionality of their innovative camera drone.
“C-mi (see-me) is the first camera drone designed with real world usability in mind.
– Stowable: Its frame is designed to pack easily in a small case or backpack.
– All-Weather: Its structure and built-in camera housing are designed for all weather use.
– Integrated Flight and Camera Controller: C-mi’s digital user interface has been designed so that you can easily control the flyer, dynamically change the camera modes and view live video during flight, and directly share images and video – all from a single app.
C-mi evolved from our frustration that despite there being many small drones on the market, none of them combine all the features you need to make them easily usable. Either the drone is too big to easily store or the gimbaled camera mount is exposed, delicate and victim to the elements. As important, while some drones feature complex shot framing tools, they can’t show you live previews!
Even the most “integrated” systems require you to carry several different devices to set behavior and monitor live feed video. The dream of the perfect flying action camera becomes lost in multiple controllers, inability to easily check what you’re shooting and cumbersome equipment to lug to your filming site.”
