Draganflyer X4 Helicopter for Aerial Photography

Draganflyer X4 Helicopter for Aerial Photography

Draganfly Innovations Inc has introduced the Draganflyer X4 unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that could carry a compact digital camera and shoot pictures from above, with remote control on the ground.

The company said Draganflyer X4 features much of the same technology as the Draganflyer X6, but can be purchased at a fraction of the cost. Designed for commercial, government, and military applications, the Draganflyer X4 aims to provide affordable aerial photographs and video surveillance.

The on-board camera transmits wireless video via a 5.8 GHz transmitter built into the mount. Wireless video can be received using either the handheld controller (which includes its own flat patch video antenna) or the optional base station. Video glasses plug directly into the handheld transmitter, allowing the operator to see what the helicopter is seeing and get perfectly aimed aerial photographs and video. The optional base station is compatible with any modern PC running Windows and features three standard RCA output jacks.
