Camera Electronic On The Battlefield Of the Future
Here at Camera Electronic we are proud to be able to say that we are at the cutting edge. We bleed frequently.
A new product in-store will make this all happen faster. We have taken delivery of the Phantom - a four-rotor drone system capable of lifting a small digital camera. It has space on-board for a GoPro camera and is controlled by a digital radio-control set.
The average photographer may not have experience flying a spy drone but the makers of the Phantom are confident that the skill can be picked up easily. Those readers who have built radio/controlled aircraft, helicopters, or boats may be a bit skeptical about this, but they are not selling the Phantom. In any event the Phantom is equipped with GPS system that will sense when it flies too far out of the range of the transmitter - if this happens it takes control and returns the aircraft to the launching point.
There are 4 powerful motors lifting the Phantom and the propellor rotors are readily replaceable when you crash. If you are concerned about slicing through a sunday school picnic on the local oval with 4 razor sharp whirling knives there is a set of optional prop-guards. Spare batteries are quite inexpensive.
The light weight of the GoPro cameras is perfect for this sort of platform. You can record amazing detail with these on the ground or water so the results from the air should be great.
Please note we are not authorised to sell HVAR, Hellfire, or other air-to-ground missiles. You will have to be content with using the Phantom for surveillance over obstacles.
