Hover 2 – The 4K Drone That Flies Itself

Tesni Patching, 2019-01-08

The Hover 2 is an impressive improvement on the previous model, The Hover Camera Passport, with added features and a much more powerful processor. With the ability to fly itself and capture cinematic shots, this drone is great for recording your travel adventures or memories without the hassle. Here are some of the features which make this model so interesting.


Obstacle Avoidance


One of the biggest advantages of this drone is that it flies itself, and this does not mean that you have to worry about it colliding with other objects. The optical radar allows the drone to detect objects and avoid them, meaning that you can focus on what you are doing while it handles the filming. Say you are taking a hike with friends or in the middle of an activity, like mountain biking, you’re not going to be thinking about where your drone is and, with this piece of equipment, you don’t have to. The drone flies itself and captures cinematic shots based on filming techniques. It can also film from the front, side and back so you can gather visually engaging footage whilst enjoying your experiences. Thanks to the optical radar, the drone can still detect objects from all around whilst following you from each angle and its tracking allows it to lock on to a target despite changes in the surrounding environment, keeping you at the centre of the shot.


Video Quality


Along with cinematic filming techniques, the powerful camera produces high-quality pictures and videos with the help of its compact gimble for stabilisation. This is ideal for moving shots or activities as the drone is able to fly alongside its target and record clear and stable footage which you wouldn’t be able to capture with a handheld camera. Imagine reaching the top of a hike or shooting down a mountain on your bike or skateboard and capturing the landscape, speed and movement all with the drones automatic flying functions. Take clear and beautiful pictures of yourself and your friends whilst traveling by choosing from four different auto-frame options from your phone. This gives you the ability to see your pictures, before you take them, and position them perfectly without someone else having to hold the camera.  


Design and Portability


The modern cage design also provides more protection for the propellers. The cage and propellers are easy to fold and fit in your bag without worrying about damaging them or the added hassle of taking them apart before you put them away. You can also remove the cage to easily attach and use different accessories such as landing guards. The design of the drone means that you don’t have to carry a specific bag or case to keep it protected as it is lightweight and can be transported easily in any bag. This is ideal for traveling as it can be taken in any hand luggage bag and perfect for hiking as you don’t have to worry about carrying extra weight. You can also use two different sized controllers, including a small Palm Pilot and the more powerful BlastOff controller which allows you to control the drone from as far as 5km away. You can fit the Palm Pilot in your pocket and take it with you on all your adventures. Alternatively, use the BlastOff controller to capture aerial footage and stunning landscape shots.
