Ape X Drone is available now for pre-orders on Arikovani. By supporting the crowdfunding project you are able to get your hands on the drone at an advantageous price before it hits the mass market.
Designed by a group of aspiring Turkish entrepreneurs, with its 3-axis gimbal camera stabilizer and 4K resolution cameraman, the drone allows you to get quality images without distortion for 27 minutes on a single charge.
The control of the drone is provided by a single-handed commander. This control named MIME is slightly different from the drone controls we are used to. It has orientation sensors on it, which drives the drone by sensing your movements like the Wii commander. With the button on the back, you can manage home-return functions that work with position protection (hover) and GPS technology.
The team behind the project claims that this is “the world’s easiest to use drone”, mainly due to the MIME control.
There are many other cool features of the drone, allowing you to experience the flying at first hand like the FPV (first person view) – the first eye view feature; the live broadcast module added on the drone makes a live broadcasting in the VR monitor with FPV kit possible.
Other great news is that the open source code allows you to modify it according to your needs and taste and even to add your own module to the drone.
