The PowerEgg from Power Vision is more than just a drone, it is a centerpiece. When not in flight, the craft transforms into a nearly seamless egg shape that rests in an included stand for prominent display. It features the Maestro, a gesture-based controller designed to give users an intuitive, easy-to-learn flying experience.
As an alternative, it also comes with a traditional transmitter-style controller with dual sticks for conventional RC piloting. However you choose to fly, you will be able to record the experience with a built-in 14MP photo / UHD 4K video camera with 3-axis gimbal.
The PowerEgg's prop arms fold flush against the body for a sleek appearance that is an excellent complement to modern decor. With the included stand, you can put the PowerEgg proudly on display.
Fly with gestures using the included Maestro controller. For a more traditionally RC flying experience, a joystick-style transmitter also comes in the box. It can be controlled from distances of up to 3.1 miles (line-of-sight).
The PowerEgg features a 14MP, 3-axis gimbal stabilized camera that is revealed underneath. The camera can take DNG or JPEG still photos with burst and time-lapse settings available. It will also record video at up to UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution and a 60 Mbps bitrate. Stills and video are recorded to a separately available microSD card.
PowerModes provide auto-pilot assistance, which is great for beginners and also allows flyers to concentrate on camera work.
Simply press one button and the PowerEgg will launch itself and hover at a pre-defined altitude. The Return to Home function means once the flight is over you can bring the drone back to terra firma just as easily.
If you need to take a break or encounter a problem, press pause. The drone will stop on the spot and hover until you are ready to start flying again.
A safe minimum distance keeps the drone from flying too close to the pilot. You can also define a maximum distance to help avoid flyaways or losing contact with the drone.
Outdoors, the PowerEgg finds its way via GPS. It also features an optical positioning system to enable navigation while indoors and close to the ground.
In Orbit mode, the drone will fly a circular radius around a fixed point.
Cable Cam is a "waypoint" flying flight pattern following a predefined path. Heading, altitude and other parameters can be separately set at each waypoint.
In follow me mode, the drone will lock onto the controller and automatically track it (GPS availability required).
With an iOS or Android mobile device you can access additional features, such as viewable training tutorials, advanced settings, and the ability to capture camera images on your mobile device.
The included battery gives the PowerEgg its power and lasts up to 23 minutes, depending on flying conditions.
