Remote controlled 3-axis gimbal, full HD at 60 fps, 25 minutes of flight time and ‘Follow Me’ feature place drone ahead of the pack
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — AEE Technology Inc., a global leader in the action camera and drone industry, today launched the AP11, the newest drone in its collection. Priced at $999.99, the AP11 with integrated first-person view (FPV) camera is the second generation of quad-rotor radio controlled (RC) helicopter from AEE and features 16 megapixels and 1080/60fps wireless HD FPV cameras, giving you the entire experience right out of the box.
The AP11 features a 3-axis gimbal and AEE S61 camera to capture smooth and fluid HD footage on every flight. Other AEE cameras and comparable action cameras can be attached to the gimbal of the AP11, and stabilizes shooting to within 0.1 degrees of pointing accuracy.
With a three cell (3S) 6800mAh battery and improved prop design, flying time lasts to up to 25 minutes and reaches heights of up to 2,296 feet. The AP11 will appeal to a variety of users, from RC aircraft hobbyists who want to record their flights to videographers and photographers looking to open up a whole new range of shooting possibilities.
The most significant upgrade on the AP11 is the state-of-the-art “Follow Me” feature. It enables the drone to automatically follow the user without any use of the controller with the aid of a “Follow Me” tracker. While the “Follow Me” feature is on, the drone will independently follow the user 45 feet away and 45 feet angled. The drone will always face forward towards the user and record simultaneously.
Each drone unit is controlled via handheld controller with the option of utilizing the iOS App/Android AEE Flight App, camera control and live video feeds. Video and images are stored onto an up to 64GB Class 10 MicroSD memory card (not included with unit).
