Micro Drone 3.0

Amount Raised: $2,073,696

The on-board camera can shoot 1280×720 photos and stream live 720p/30fps HD video to an Android or iOS smartphone. An additional 3D mode allows pilots to utilize a VR headset, such as Google Cardboard, to fly the drone in a stereoscopic first-person view.

Micro Drone 3.0 houses a number of computer-assisted features including auto-leveling via “intelligent motion sensors”, the ability to fly in winds up to 45mph thanks to a “corrective algorithm”, and inverted flight (made possible by motors that can reverse their polarity).

Flight time is eight minutes with the battery recharged via USB, while video can be stored on an onboard micro SD card. The drone measures 50 mm (1.96 in) in height and 145 mm (5.7 in) in diameter.
