The next generation of quadcopters with ground stations and
A new year begins and it is time to showcase the next generation
of consumer gadgets. This year, CES's biggest draws is 4K ultra hi-definition TV
and drones. Yes quadcopters, hexacopters and planes!
CES is expecting 150,000 attendees to the Las Vegas region, including more than
35,000 international visitors.
More than 3,500 firms will exhibit new electronics at this years' International
Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, among them are iUAS Walkera and DJI.
Walkera who started the first commercially available 6-axis gyro quad craze back
in 2011 called the QR Ladybird, will unveil it's latest quadcopter Dronecode X,
(name yet to be determined) and at the same time DJI will unveil it's highly
anticipated Inspire 1. Both looking relative similar in design, but
different in it's own ways.
Walkera Model TBA
Walkera has been working on this model for a while, based on the reputable
Linux Foundation dronecode.org projects aka APM copter. It will have
the core functionality such as follow-me, gps waypoint autonomous flight, return
to launch, to name a few. Scheduled to be released by Q1 2015.
DJI Inspire 1 Shoots up to 4K video and capture 12 megapixel
photos with the Inspire 1, a key
selling point of this new quad. With the
new gimbal you get a full, unrestricted 360⁰ view of the world below and create
images like never before. DJI are taking pre-orders.
