“6 times lighter than AR.Drone and the same flight stability thanks to an autopilot based on a 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer.
• Pressure sensor for the flight altitude
• Ultrasonic sensor for precision flying near the ground
• Its vertical camera at 60 fps measures the speed comparing previous image.
This ultra-sophisticated technology based on sensor data fusion makes Rolling Spider one of the world’s most stable drones.
It has an exclusive free-fall take-off mode: its engines start when you drop it.
