And the functions offered by the Drone Funsnap Idol are very many, including the main one attributable to theadoption of AI technology able to recognize the user's gesture with a detailed learning system that will allow us not to use the application day after day. Gesture for photos with the use of two fingers or a landing with the whole hand and much more.
But there is no lack of it method of tracking the object or the person making certain shots spectacular. Oh yes because on the new aircraft Idol we have a system of High quality video / photo capture with resolution FUll HD 1920 x 1080 to 30 fps and a 3D noise reduction algorithm so that the image is more refined and defined. Present a small LED above the lens which shows us the state of operation of the latter which, moreover, is inclinable with angle ranging from -90 ° to + 30 °. And there are also ad hoc flight programs for videos such as panoramic 360 °, 45 ° flip and much more.

And in these situations we meet the application that allows share the contents captured by the Idol drone through social media (Weibo and WeChat).

The brushless motor reduces energy consumption but also the level of noise generated by the blades, increasing in fact the flight range to about 30%. In fact the battery integrated with 1800 mAh manages to meet flight needs for over 10 minutes.
