Deal Of The Day: X8+ Premier Power Drone

X8+ Premier Power Drone

 

Drones let you record imagery and capture the world that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to from the ground. A good option to consider when you’re just starting out with drones is the X8+ Premier Power Drone. It’s a powerful, ready-to-fly and Follow-Me compatible drone that you can use for photography, for art projects, and even for delivering small precious cargo.

The X8+ has an expandable platform to carry goods to be delivered or your GoPro. While it can carry up to 1 kg, heavier loads will slow the drone down, so you might want to think twice before loading it up to the max. The X8+  stores flight data so you can generate point clouds for precision surveying and fully-automated flight control makes it easy to fly.

The X8+ is available for $1,300.

Fully-functional 3D-Printed Drone Made Using 3Doodler pen

3D printed drone made using 3Doodler pen

We have come a long way since the 3Doodler – the 3D printing pen, surprised the world by raising over $2 million on Kickstarter. One thing that has changed for good since then is that some of the most incredible works of 3D art have been designed using the 3Doodler. Case in point is this 3D printed flying hexacopter drone made entirely with the 3Doodler. Created by Louis DeRosa of Plasticity Productions, the 3Doodler printed hexacopter can actually fly like an efficient drone.

Except for the motor, motherboard and battery, everything on DeRosa’s drone is made from 3D printing. Like many 3D creators would affirm, working with the 3Doodler is just like working with the pen on paper, but it wasn’t as simple for DeRosa. The first version of the drone he conceived had some design flaws and proved to be a little off balance. If you’ve built your own drones, or have used a hexacopter like this, you’d know – complete balance is key to a hexacopter’s consistent flight.

Working more cautiously on the things he’d done incorrectly, DeRosa created the second version as a 6-winged flying drone. It took DeRosa a few hours to work upon the first version and arrive at a fully tested second and final version.

Black Hornet Looks Like a Toy, Is Actually a Military Drone

Black Hornet

You’ll never look at toy helicopters the same way again. The Black Hornet, officially named the “PD-100 Black Hornet Personal Reconnaissance System,” looks like the ones you commonly see at toy stores, but they’re actually surveillance drones that are controlled remotely by a soldier.

The drone was recently unveiled at the Association of the United States Army Expo in Washington DC, but it’s not something new for those on the field as it has already been used by British personnel in Afghanistan. Small enough to fit in the palm of a child, the Black Hornet can be used to scout for potential enemies, survey at-risk areas, and spy on suspects.

Drone Waiter Serves UK Diners–Is A Tip Still Required?

Drone Waiter

Do the usual rules of tipping etiquette still apply when you’ve got a drone for a waiter? UK-based Yo Sushi has begun using iPad-controlled quadcopters to deliver meals to diners at the restaurant. The drone waiter, which is aptly called the iTray, is equipped with two high-definition cameras so that the cooking staff can see the reactions of the customers when their food arrives.

You can check out a video of the iTray in action after the break.
