At the beginning of 2015, a mass of FPV aircraft has been launched on the market. Take Walkera Voyager 3 for example, the quad-copter inherits all-in-one flight control system while adopts totally new design structure. I’m afraid that 4K camera will be the main trend when it comes to aerial photography! In a word, this quad-copter dedicates to reach the most astonishing FPV effect. You will get more information in the next passage.
At the past, the arms of multi-rotor aircraft are fixed without possibility to transform, which makes the lend warped while photographing. As for Walkera Voyager 3, its arms are installed on the upper of the main frame forming into “V” body. Besides, the skid landing will move into horizontal direction, thus hobbyists can reach 360º unobstructed photography. When it’s ready to land, the skid landing will automatically back to takeoff position to decrease sudden impact.
What’s more, Walkera Voyager 3 utilizes 4K Camera which allows to shoot 4K video at 24p and 30p and HD video frame rates from 24p to 60p, featuring a 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor with a 94-degree FOV lens. And The field of view works out about 20mm in 35mm equivalent. Besides, you’re allowed to change all camera settings, including ISO, white balance, exposure and so on to ensure every shoot looks exactly what you want!
In addition, an integrated flight control with stabilization is taken by Walkera Voyager 3. The flight control system seems perfectly comparable with 3-axis gimbal. And the three-axis gimbal utilizes brushless servo motors to keep the shot stable and the horizon level. The camera can remain locked on the subject whatever direction the quad-copter turns in terms of transformable skid landing. And manual panning and tilting can be achieved via the transmitter.
GPS and GLONASS dual-navigation system is the breakthrough that Walkera Voyager 3 made. Actually, the quad-copter can makes accurate and precise position hold equipped with GPS module. With GLONASS dual-navigation, you have access to larger blanket of satellites supplies your quad-copter with more accurate location data, and you location can be pinpointed to as close as 2m. the only thing you have to is download relative APP into your smart phone.
Last but not least, Walkera Voyager 3 supports 2.4GHz + 5.8GHz wireless video transmission. It’s probably equipped with transmitter including a high-resolution LCD monitor which supports telemetry feature. For one thing, pilots can monitor flight data such as battery voltage, weather, altitude, temperature, GPS and so on to avoid crashes. For another thing, first person view scenery can be achieved with the LCD display!
