Make Drones Capture Video Easily With 3DR
Smart drone manufacturer 3D Robotics makes capturing videos with its Solo drones a lot easier. At the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held in Las Vegas, Nevada, the company introduces new functions for its Solo UAV and smartphone app controls.
3D Robotics, a Berkeley-based company that makes commercial and recreational UAVs, will be making it a lot easier for its Solo drone owners to record videos exactly the way they want it. At the CES, the company introduces a variety of new functions for its UAVs and the smartphone apps that control the UAVs.
3DR introduces an interesting new feature to its UAV function known as the multipoint cable cam. Instead of users having to create a flight path for drones using apps and then testing the path multiple times before users get exactly the shots they want, the new mode lets users fly the UAVs to a certain point and then frame the shot and afterwards mark it in the app. After doing so, users can fly their drones to the next spot and then frame the shot again. With this, users are now able to set a new video keyframe. They can do this as often as they want to.
After Solo drone users are done setting up the keyframes, they can simply tell the UAVs to fly, and it will automatically go from keyframe to keyframe and in a smooth manner between it, and users can tilt and move the camera as needed. Users are able to save their flight plans on the mobile app that controls the UAVs.
Another noteworthy feature introduced by 3D Robotics is the Freelook Follow. This feature permits drones to follow their owners, although users can still control the drone camera. Also, this feature can be used for hunting or tracking. When having a randomly fast-moving object that people want to track, often it can be quite a mess having to move the camera using the software. With the Freelook Follow feature, unmanned flying vehicle operators can just take over camera functions while the drones follow whatever they are tracking.
To add up, 3D Robotics will be introducing a flight simulation mode for the Solo app. This feature will allow new UAV pilots to learn the basics before they put their investments on unmanned flying vehicles.
