The First Half of the Prize: 3D Robotics IRIS+ Multicopter 915MHz Ready-to-Fly Drone
Follow Me Technology
If you’re carrying a GPS-enabled Android device, the IRIS+ can follow and film you for dramatic third-person views. Advanced technology controls the gimbal to keep the camera centered on you as you ski down a mountain, bike down a trail, or roll down a really big hill.
Draw Flight Paths
Free DroidPlanner2 software lets you plan a flight just by drawing the route on an Android tablet or phone. The drone will fly where you want it to and can even keep a GoPro pointed at the same location if you mark Region of Interest waypoints on the flight.
If the IRIS+ travels out of range or runs out of battery life, it can land itself or come back to a home point.
An integrated GoPro camera mount with vibration dampener makes aerial photography and video easy to set up.
