Ehang Ghostdrone 2.0 VR sends first-person flight to your phoneWith a little bit of everything, the Ghostdrone 2.0 is a good gateway into drone piloting.
If you don't wanna break the bank the Ehang Ghostdrone 2.0 VR is a very good starting point. It comes in at a fraction of the cost of other 4k camera drones and it packs in some cool toys and features for you to play around with. Complicated controls at the window because the ghostdrone can be flown. From your phone. Download it to either iOS or Android, and you'll find your full flight interface and camera controls right on screen. If you've got a co pilot that can fly along with the drone by using the VI headset to get a first person view from the camera feed, there's some great safety features like an auto land when the battery is running low, or if it loses connection with your phone. When we took it out for a spin, we were getting about 25 minutes of flight time from a full charge, which was very impressive for a drone of this size. You'll be able to catch your 4K footage in up to 30 frames per second, and dropping that resolution down lets you film it up to 120 frames per second. Our test footage showed a little bit of [INAUDIBLE] which might have been the Gimbal struggling in the strong winds. The Ghostdrone function a lot of cool toys and features and it doesn't add an entry level price. Yes, that entry level price is a little steep but it is remarkably easy to get off the ground and get flying for first time pilots.
