Aerix DaVinci drone

Aerix Drones has announced the release of DaVinci, a mid-sized aerial photography and racing drone hybrid. DaVinci’s on-board first-person view (FPV) camera streams live video and records to the on-board micro SD card in 720p at 25fps, making it Aerix’s highest resolution video drone.

DaVinci features four brushless motors — two standard motors and two inverted motors — providing a blend of torque, thrust and lift. The aircraft can reach up to 30 MPH with a 15-minute flight time, and has a range of up to 250 meters.

DaVinci is equipped with dual GPS to hold height and location, in addition to setting a home point for one-touch takeoff, landing and return to home functions. Low voltage warnings and fail-safe settings ensure that users have enough time to return home for a smooth landing.

DaVinci features 5.8Ghz FPV (First Person View) for low latency live streaming video. The on-screen display includes height, number of satellites, flying direction, horizontal speed, vertical speed and power in real-time.

DaVinci can execute mid-air maneuvers with extremely responsive handling due to the pre-installed stabilizer technology upgrades. Six-axis gyro-stabilization keeps the drone stable and centered. Pilots can bank hard and fast in any direction and DaVinci will automatically return to center, and 360-degree rotational yaw allows seamless adjusting of orientation.
