The AirDog sports drone is an automated drone kit specifically made for extreme sports enthusiasts. Designed by Helico Aerospace Industries, this drone is the ultimate GoPro accessory capable of capturing action shots and dronography of people while they are surfing a monster wave, snowboarding down a steep hill, or kite-surfing through choppy waters.
Unlike other camera drones on the market, the AirDog is small, portable, agile, and easy to carry. The intelligent device comes with AirDog’s smartphone application and the AirLeash, a signal tracker that works with the AirDog drone to communicate the user’s position in the water or on the slope. Once the AirDog calibrates the user’s position, the drone points the GoPro at the individual who is wearing the AirLeash.
The AirDog sports drone takes off and lands on its own accord, giving you the flexibility you need to perform a gravity-defying snowboard trick or radical skateboard maneuver. Helico Aerospace’s engineering team created this autonomous flight capability after spending many months tinkering with intelligent flight algorithms. The AirDog can also be controlled manually or used as a handheld camera.
AirDog’s mobile application is compatible with both iOS and Android devices.
Helico is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to receive public funding for this unique auto-follow smart drone.
