HEXO

The next big technology breakthrough device for you’re Go pro is here! I’m talking about the infamous Hexo+. This is a light weight,but highly sophisticated and intelligent tracking drone that will follow and record your action sport videos all from Gps coordination from you’re phone in your pocket! Bringing aerial filming to the next Level.

This just opened up a whole new book of ideas for action sports athletes.As before any aerial filming had to have the support of a full size helicopter, or a Rc drone.  Now you can eliminate all of those with this new Hexo+ drone. No more camera men, no more helicopters, no more hassle, just you, hexo+,go pro or Ion, Sony action cam and a very intuitive app on you’re phone to control every shot.

Let’s get more familiar with the tech details. This drone is a little bigger then the size off a football. It has six proppellers to insure proper flight patterns. Underneath camera Mount for your choice of action camera.Being go pro, Sony action cam, and ion. When your setting up to film a shot,It’s as easy as going into you’re app on your phone and it will give you a 3D point of view of how you wanna capture you’re shot. Then you can choose a pattern in which way you want the drone to fly by using finger swiping motions(left to right, up and down, and °360). Place your phone back in your pocket and let the drone do the rest. It will start to fly above you,and follow you to what ever pattern you drew on the app before you stuck it back in your pocket.After filiming a shot, it returns to the ground without having to land it by remote control.

It’s pretty compatible, some parts are foldable enough to fit in your back pack.Drone reaches up to 45mph making it easy to film most action sports. And looks like the price ranges from 300-700 depending on the accessory package you choose. Unfortunately it looks like the Hexo+ won’t be available until May 2015. Plenty of time to get more information on it before it comes out, and to get pumped for this new piece of equipment for it shall change the game of aerial filming indubitably.
