Like a V-Tol but smaller.
The Vtol looking foldable bicopter from Zero Zero Robotics is making waves as it promises to stay in the air a lot longer than its quadcopter competition – a whopping 50 minutes flying time. Not to mention it looks really good!
V-Coptr Falcon hits the market in February but you can get it on ZeroZero Robotics site now on a pre-sale, which will let you save $200 on the regular price that will be $999.
The most striking feature of this drone is of course being a bicopter. It has a tilt rotor design that offers two-fold efficiency gain to achieve greater flight time. Such a design is more compact and offers greater efficiency than a quadcopter, while also having much better aerodynamics. Zero Zero Robotics isn’t a new name in the drone market, having already had some success with its first two drones called the Hover Camera Passport and Hover 2.
V-Coptr features low noise propellers that are attached to the drone via tilting arms, allowing the drone to remain stable and fly in the intended direction. The V-Coptr Falcon has a 1/2.3inch 12MP CMOS sensor capable of 4K video stabilized by a 3-axis gimbal. It has front-facing obstacle avoidance sensors and is capable of tracking objects, similar to DJI’s ActiveTrack. The V-Coptr can also take cinematic shots with its built-in flight modes.
The drone is lightweight as it weighs 730 grams with a 4500mAh battery giving it its 50 minute flight time, while the controller has a 2.5 hour flight time. The V-Coptr takes JPEG and RAW photos at 12MP while it is able to take video in 4K @ 30 fps, 2.7K @ 60 fps, 1080p @ 120 fps and 720p @ 120 fps.
