Aerial Photography and Film
One of the major advantages of the HoverflyProTM flight control system is scalability. You can choose Quad, Hex, or Octo and even "+" or "X" orientations in Quad configuration. The HoverflyPro also automatically corrects for different size frames. On-Board and transmitter gain allows the user to fine tune the flight control. Why is this important? If all you want to fly is a tiny camera then it's not as important. But if you want to fly the latest HD cameras that weigh 5-10 lbs (just an example not a limit) then you are going to need a flight controller that can handle larger platforms. We currently have users with Quadcopters in the >20 lb flight weight category. They have chosen to use our flight controllers for their more demanding applications.
Safety and Surveillance
One of the expanding markets for multi-rotor aircraft is remote monitoring. The most important factor in these applications is video that is not shaky and that can be used to make confident identification. The stability of the Hoverfly flight controllers, we believe, is unmatched in the market today. The combination of parallel processing of gyro, accelerometer and pressure data, Pan/Tilt camera stabilization, and our sensor fusion algorithm make this possible.
This is where we started and we continue to feed this market with products that allow you to build your own multi-rotor aircraft quickly. Our board is the only US manufactured solution that you can use Plug-N-FlyTM. Our HoverflyPro is also the most cost effective solution available. Hundreds of customers have had great success using our products (formerly Quadpowered). This will continue to be a primary market for our products.
