The ability to control the camera with a 2nd operator, paired with the X5S & NEW X7 camera systems, this system is capable of capturing beautiful cinematic images with great dynamic range while being efficient and precise. It's smaller size makes it possible to launch and fly in confined spaces.

Our system has also been custom modified and battle-tested for 360º VR Content, carrying two GoPro Fusions to give you the ability to stitch out the drone for the final 360º deliverable.
