Camera options include 4K, 1080, infrared and GoPro and a multi-controller option allows for easy teaching and sharing of a single UAV.

There is screen sharing on up to three devices, follow me technology and HD video transmission.

“Our drones will put all new power into the hands of outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers,” stated Joseph Haagensen, PR manager for ProDrone. “The power, durability and portability of this device is a game changer - when you add in the modularity of the gimbal/camera combinations, it will change the industry.”

The drone will launch later in 2015 priced between $800-$3,000 depending on package.
