A “cross-over” drone with traditional controller for cinematography or smartwatch control for hands-free flight for action sports.
About this project
The XEagle’s intelligent smart flight commands and (optional) hands-free smartwatch will transform beginners into professional pilots and videographers with ease.
With all this, you no longer need to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to get the intelligence and features packed into the FlyPro XEagle Smart Piloted Drone.
Whether you’re an action sport enthusiast, a weekend outdoorsman hiking the mountainside, a quadcopter hobbyist or simply want to take epic aerial photography, the XEagle will transform beginners into professional pilots and videographers with ease.
Which one will you use? Hands-Free, One-Push Buttons for Auto Flight or Traditional Quadcopter Professional Controller, the choice is up to you…
The unique ring bearing knob will allow you to choose where your drone is in relation to you. Whether skiing, mountain biking or skateboarding, you’ll appreciate the extra hands when they’re needed most.
Intelligently designed algorithms make complex flying maneuvers easy and safe while speeding through the sky above you.
We’ve taken some of the most complex flight maneuvers and made them easy. With just one-click on the smartwatch or your smartphone app, you’ll fly like an expert pilot.
A built-in infrared photoelectric sensor can detect obstacles from 10cm up to 15 meters and avoid collisions by taking an alternate flight path.
Perfect for nearly any sport, the XEagle will follow your every move at a height/distance you choose, at any speed up to 40km/h all while the camera gimbal tracks your every move. Control its orientation to you with a quick turn of a knob.
This is great for when you need extensive aerial footage when surveying large areas. This mode allows you to draw curves or a flight route plan on your smartphone app and the drone follow this flight plan by itself and will land autonomously once it has completed its flight route.
Before the flight route launches, you can easily set the altitude and speed. The smartphone app will measure the expected length of the route and the flight time so you do not exceed range restrictions or power limits before takeoff.
Most experienced pilots know how hard it is to create perfect circles, with the camera focused on a central point…
With Auto-Circle the XEagle flies in perfect circular rotations on a set radius and altitude, keeping the camera aimed at your target. To add another level of creativity, you can even adjust the flight rotation speed or select a lower spiral altitude for a closer shot.
The Hover and Aim feature instructs the XEagle to stay in one position above the ground, but constantly points the camera at your smartphone, controller or smartwatch. This fixed and track option is perfect for tight places such as smaller skateparks, narrow forest trails, or for activities such as bungee jumping or base jumping where clearance from your equipment is important.
Never worry about losing your drone due to signal strength, low battery or poor navigation skills. By selecting the auto-return flight mode, your XEagle can automatically return to you or its take-off location.
The XEagle video capabilities enables anyone to film like a pro by getting sweeping multi-axis footage and panning 4k cinematic video.
FlyPro XEagle is available in 4 versions:
Risks and challenges
1. Making the transition from producing a small number of samples to full production will take some effort. We will accomplish this by working with out partners to build out a plan of attack.
2. We’d like to offer a more beautiful smartwatch, but we are struggling with the size of the voice module sensor. We will work with our engineering team to find a solution to downsizing the watch’s internals, and put out the most impressive product possible.
3. Our infrared obstacle avoidance system has passed our preliminary tests, but requires more fine tuning to work perfectly. We will take the time to dial it in and make sure it works in an ideal fashion before going to market.
