How it works? It autonomously follows you by tracking your position via receiving signal from AirLeash. The AirLeash is a small waterproof computerized tracker with clever software and sensors inside. It sends signals to the AirDog via Bluetooth (up to 300m), indicating exact movement trajectory. It will have multiple attachment opportunities (helmet, snow-googles, wrist, bike handle-bar, etc).
AirDog is Fully autonomous from take-off to landing. No remote control skills required. It also have a gyroscope and clever stabilized gimbal that will always point camera towards you and eliminate shaky footage.
The AirDog Auto follow drone got 6 preset modes with different views and angles for professional recording as you got your personal camera man!! The associated application (Android & IOS compatible) does allow users to set the distance, height and angle of the flying camera. Users can also use the app to create custom flight paths.
