Drones are now quite popular. Everyone likes them and many people actually own one of them. Thankfully, when it comes to purchasing drones, customers have a huge variety to choose from. Of course, the DJI drones are the most popular ones. They are great, however, they are quite expensive too. Also, they are not necessarily what amateurs need. People who don’t fly drones on a daily basis should first invest in a smaller, less expensive drone that is easy to fly. This way, they won’t smash a huge amount of money when their drone first hits the ground. The LeveTop Autonomous Folding Drone could be exactly what beginners need. The drone is quite small, easy to carry around, extremely easy to maneuver and it won’t leave a huge crater in people’s budgets.
The LeveTop drone is, at this point, the subject of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. The rather strange-looking drone already impressed a lot of people so the goal was already reached. Even so, there still are 40 days to go until the campaign ends and in this timeframe, backers can get ahold of one of these drones for a smaller price than its retail price will be later on. Let’s see what the LeveTop Autonomous Folding Drone has to offer for its price.
First of all, the LeveTop has a rather unusual design. When folded, it reminds me of a thermos. Of course, it’s not suitable for carrying your hot or cold beverages, instead, it will take off and capture some really cool images with its 1080p camera. Thanks to its quadruple folding frame, the LeveTop drone is easy to fit into a backpack and carry around whenever you need it. This little beast is quite easy to control so users will probably not smash it on its first flight. It can take off and land on its own and users can control it with the help of their smartphones. LeveTop is compatible with iOS and Android devices alike.
The LeveTop Autonomous Folding Drone has a 20 minutes flight time. This is quite impressive, especially if we take the price of the device into consideration. The gadget has a 100 meters range and a 120 degrees field of view. The only thing that would make it better is a 360 degrees camera. Then again, that feature comes for a higher price normally. The LeveTop drone can reach speeds of up to 33 mph. LeveTop offers built-in WiFi connectivity, so transferring your pictures and videos to a smartphone is really easy. From there, users can share their images with friends over social networks or Youtube.
Thanks to its motion controlling technology, LeveTop doesn’t require its owners to be great pilots. It will go wherever they want it to. Setting the direction is as easy as it gets. Users only need to tilt their smartphones in the right direction and LeveTop will follow their lead. The gadget also features object tracking so it will always stay on whatever users want it to photograph or film.
Those who back the project with at least $139 can get their hands on a LeveTop Autonomous Folding Drone that will most likely ship sometime in June. There are only two months to go until then, and it would be a nice gadget to have on a summer holiday. Those who choose to back the project with more will also get a carry case or an extra battery. Of course, backers can opt for other bundles too, which include multiple devices and extras.
