I’m ready to buy my first drone! Is this It? If you like your tech hassle-free, your sport extreme, and your videos epic, then your bank account is in for some damage.
Extreme sport, you say?
I go mountain-biking.
Then this is the drone for you. Snowboarding, skateboarding, dirt-bike riding… Whatever gets your adrenaline pumping, the Hexo+ is the perfect partner to autonomously capture every white-knuckle moment, without the need for a pilot’s licence.
I like the sound of this. How does it work? Set-up is easy: assemble the drone, charge the LiPo 3S battery and download the free Hexo app for your iOS or Android smartphone. Next, select from loads of cool camera movements within the app – including a neat 360-circle mode and a follow option – and a filming start location using the onboard GPS, hit Take Off, then get your ass on your bike and down that mountain.
Pretty much. The drone will stay close by, capturing every thrilling second of your ride. When you’re finished, select Come To Me and then Land in the app, and your obedient drone will return to you.
Sounds easy! What camera is it packing? The Hexo’s three-axis gimbal is designed to house a GoPro, so, in terms of camera quality, it really depends on your budget. Grab a Hero4, for example, and you will be rocking 4K video, stabilised by the drone’s six propellers.
Awesome. I want one.
