You don’t need any pilot skills when using the fully automatic and affordable LA100 from Lehmann Aviation, which is the first flying platform for GoPro users. As a autonomous drone, all users have to do is connect the battery and launch it…then wait about five minutes before it comes back to you (limited for safety purposes). It’ll fly at a height of 80m-100m and only costs 999 euros or about $1,343.
Users can easily mount their GoPro cameras in two different positions, including on top of the wing for Oblique images (Hero, Hero2 or Hero3) or at the bottom of the wing for Vertical images (Hero3 only). And if you have two cameras, you can fly with of them on both positions. Since it weighs less than 1kg (and has a wingspan of less than 1m) you can transport the foam/carbon fiber device just about anywhere. It’s also been designed for harsh and rugged environments, so you can easily take it with you on all of your adventures. It’ll withstand diverse climate conditions from -25°C to +60°C, humid or dry air and high wind resistance.
