The Aerobot unmanned helicopter is the coolest thing to happen to home-grown Australian avionics in the last few years. Equipped with six rotors and a carriage capacity of 7kg, this thing is ready to take aerial photography to a whole new level.
The Aerobot Ring is in its final testing stages, and the on-board video from Aerobot is super impressive. This thing puts gear like the Parrot AR Drone to shame. It’s incredibly manoeuvrable, super-fast and the images that the on-board camera captures are nice and stable.
It’s only got a flight time of around 15 to 20 minutes, but that’s all you need to capture incredible images. The drone that captured the incredible footage of the riots in Poland last year only needed two minutes and 40 seconds to capture something that has been shared all over the world.
We’re not sure how much the Aerobot Ring will retail for when it comes out, but I’m saving up already.
Make sure to watch through to the 1:15 mark to see this thing shoot off into the distance. Awesome.
