By Julio Ventura 2017-11-22 11741 27
Portability is currently one of the most sought features among drone enthusiasts. Top-Rated drones such as DJI MavicPro Mini and Pro Platinum are a great example of what the public loves. With this in mind, Zero Zero Robotics has manufactured the perfect foldable pocket drone to carry around anywhere you go- GearBest presents you Hover Camera Passport.
Unboxing Hover Camera Passport
As you unbox the foldable drone, you will find a power adapter and the battery charger to charge the quadcopter and two li-polymer rechargeable batteries. 1 USB cable, 1 protective shoulder strap, 1 portable protective package and 1 beam pocket to easily carry around the drone. 4 screw propellers, 12 screw assembly, 2 screwdrivers and 1 English and Japanese manual of instructions. Lastly, you will of course find the drone too.
The quadcopter is truly easy to carry around in small bag, pocket, or purse. Its foldable design allows it to have a travel-friendly size, it is impeccably compact for recording aerial footage or taking photos on-the-go. Hover Passport is only 18.2 x 13.2 x 3.3 cm when folded , which is one of the most portable pocket drones in the market. On top of this, it is also very lightweight, only weighting 242g, and highly resistant to crashes and hits thanks to its carbon fiber frame.
Auto follow and flight
Why is Hover Passport a truly self-flying personal photographer? Mostly due to its outstanding face detection technology. This feature enables the drone to track face and body, consequently automatically following the target while taking photos or recording video. For control-free flying the manufacturer has included the "Owner Mode" feature that finds pilot by itself and follows him right out of the box. These automatic functions are great for recording someone while he or she is jogging, cycling, walking, or running. Its AI(Artificial Intelligence) also detects and recognizes the owner of the drone and thanks to "Gesture Mode" allows him to take photos with just a hand sign.
Orbit and 360 degree spin features
A fun feature of the drone is the capability to orbit around its target automatically, without any user input, while recording video or taking photos. The drone is easy to operate and can move together with the target. Another great addition is the capability to capture 360 degree panoramic video, a trending function in many camera gadgets at the moment.
Built-in camera with 13MP and 4K video
One of the highlights of this amazing foldable drone is the camera quality. The built-in 13MP camera has a 1/3.06 inch CMOS sensor and a lens with 78.4 degree Field of View. It's not only capable of recording 4K video at 30 frames per second, but also does 1080p and 720p at 30fps too. Photography enthusiasts will be happy to know the drone has a maximum image size of 4208×3120 and an ISO range of 100-3200. The storage capacity for all these files is 32G (already including the system files).
Live video (FPV) transmission
The drone transmits high-quality live video via WiFi directly to the pilot's smartphone device. The FPV video is displayed on the screen through the app. The maximum FPV distance can be up to 20 meters(65.6 feet).
Intuitive APP available for Android and IOS
To make it easier to carry and, obviously, to reduce the price tag of the drone, it does not come or make use of a 2.4Ghz remote controller. Instead, the drone turns the pilot's smartphone into the controller. To do this, user must download and install a free app (Android and IOS) that connects via WiFi to the drone and gives user full control over the aircraft. The User Interface is very intuitive and friendly, thus making it easy to access features and remotely control quad's movement.
Constant firmware updates
Keep the drone continuously updated with new firmware, this results in new features and smarter AI being constantly added to the drone software. To update the drone user just need to connect it via USB(cable included in the package) to the computer and check for new updates.
2 powerful batteries and charger
The drone comes with two LiPo 2S 1360mAh batteries that work at 7.6 voltage and only weigh 71g. Charger has an input voltage of 11-20V, an output of 8.7V and has 36 watts. Thus, providing a flying time up to 10 minutes (depends on the flight conditions and functions being used). It takes around 42 minutes to charge 1 battery and about 55 minutes for the two.
An award winner drone
Hover Camera Passport Drone has received multiple awards and has even been considered as the best drone in 2017 by some tech identities. It won the IF Design Award in 2017, Reddot Design Award 2017, Top 10 Best of CES 2017, CES Innovation Awards 2017 and Best Consumer Drone CES 2017. Several experts have regarded it as one of the best and most innovative drones in the drone market. Give it a try and see for yourself!
Hover Camera Passport is a perfectly designed foldable drone, ideal to carry around. It is a self-flying personal photographer that combines highly useful features with a 13MP camera capable of recording video at 4K. The awards don't lie, this drone is truly one of the best choices currently available in the market. It folds like a small notebook and can begin flight in seconds straight out of the pocket. Even for less experienced pilots the drone is a great choice due to its automatic features that allow pilot to focus on the camera while Passport does the flying. We highly recommend this aircraft to anyone that prioritizes portability and camera quality.
