Hover 2 camera drone -- tracks you automatically

Hover 2 camera drone -- tracks you automatically

[13:23 tue,18.December 2018   by ]    

A small folding drone for filmmakers is currently finding great support on Kickstarter. The Hover 2 should offer extensive, AI-supported autonomous flight and filming capabilities, such as obstacle detection and various tracking modes.

For auto-framing you can choose between four preset image sections (Waist-Up, Full-body, Backdrop, and Birds-eye), the rest is done by the drone. Also available as Preset are some Flight Paths, which imitate classic "cinematic" tracking shots. The Omni-Follow mode should not only let the Hover 2 follow from behind, but also allow recordings from the side or from the front. The drone flies sideways or backwards and should still be able to avoid possible obstacles.

For this purpose, the drone is equipped with "Optical Radar", a rotating stereo sensor for spatial depth detection, supplemented by techniques such as SLAM 3D Mapping or VIO (Visual Inertial Odometry). A Snapdragon processor is responsible for the calculations. The maximum flight time of the 490g light Hover 2 is 23 minutes, a distance of up to 5Km should be possible with a BlastOff Controller (only included in some package configurations). In addition to a mobile app, there is also a small, optional remote control for operation.



By the way, the camera itself doesn't stand out with any special features; the maximum speed for filming is 4K/UHD 30fps (or 2.7K 60fps or FHD 120fps) with max. 100Mbps. A 1/2.3" CMOS sensor with a f/2.2 optic, whose focal length corresponds to 28mm Kb, is installed. The (only) 2-axis gimbal is supported by an electronic stabilization.

Until 30 December the Hover 2 on Kickstarter with the usual crowdfunding risk can be pre-ordered, the cheapest package currently costs 449 dollars. The camera drone is supposed to cost 699 dollars later; it is based on the Hover Camera Passport drone, which was also developed by ZeroZero via Kickstarter.
