The Droneball Is a Collision Tolerant System So You Can Keep Flying

The Droneball Is a Collision Tolerant System So You Can Keep Flying

In 2016, we saw drone technology taken to the next level. We saw all shapes and sizes. Recording while flying is incredible and drones showed us things we’d never seen before. But, in addition to all of our flight time, we also saw crashes, some of which damaged the drone beyond repair. But, we now have the Droneball. It’s a collision tolerant drone with FPV. That means it:
– can handle any flight
– rebound from obstacles
– keep recording even after contact

I know you’re thinking it’s probably too good to be true but it’s not. In fact, it’s better than you can imagine and it’s true. With a front row seat, the Droneball will record all the action while thwarting the biggest threat: collisions.

The Collision Tolerant Cage

Surrounding the actual drone itself is a smart cage. This incredible feature has been expertly designed to provide maximum protection while not interfering with aerodynamics and flying controls. Because collisions are all but guaranteed for many pilots, the Droneball case is made of high-intensity ABS, carbon steel, and carbon fiber. These strong and durable materials protect the drone and camera inside.

A Cage Without Limits

Most other drone protection devices simply save your drone from total destruction. But, the Droneball ensures you can still fly after the collision. The cage uses a built-in mount to offer multi-axis maneuverability. In layman’s terms: in the event of a collision, your drone will remain upright, flyable, and, most importantly, controllable. When the Droneball comes in contact with an obstacle, this mechanism allows the drone to pitch, roll, and yaw to remain upright. This gives you unprecedented control.

It’s What’s Inside that Counts

If there was ever a drone deserving this level of protection, it’s the Droneball drone. Weighing just 350g including the cage, this drone is equipped with a 1080p HD camera for stunning photos and videos. The camera has night vision for unlimited recording possibilities. The drone is powered by a brushless 1806 motor and a 1300mAh battery for flights up to ten minutes. Incredibly, it has a top speed of 40mph.

Experience the Action

There’s no place you’d rather be than on the Droneball. Because that’s not realistic, the included FPV goggles will have to do. They’re great for showing you what the drone sees as well as assessing the surroundings after a collision for more precise control.
