Exciting times at GMi as we commence building our 4K RC drone.
Custom made – by us – it will support new 4K cameras. Why custom make it? Well it comes down to flexibility of use – we want a drone that has added safety features, can carry a variety of payloads and can support new improvements in batteries, motors and cameras as they are released.
So having scoped the requirements and components needed it was off to the workshop to commence building, testing and configuring. Bring together the lifelong hobby of RC building and flying and skills in electronic implementation, our tech nerds (read Carl and Peter!) spent a week building.
We are now into the configuration and test flying phase whilst developing operating procedures and safety guidelines. The aim of the project is to prepare the way for the next drone – capable of lifting much heavier camera rigs. It will be coming soon too!
