Muvi: X-Drone, Ready to Fly Remote Controlled Drone


There are a dozen different ways to capture your ride, most of which involve strapping a camera onto your helmet, body or bike. Whilst these certainly provide an exciting onboard viewpoint, often the footage can turn out to be too jerky for a whole film. Which is where a remote camera comes in: it can capture every contour and every bump, without bringing any undesirable vibrations with it.

Drone-mounted cameras have become extremely popular lately, with the level of quality rising by the season. Muvi’s X-Drone takes this very platform, sheds quite a bit of weight and provides what most of us are looking for: a sleek, efficient, powerful, self-contained and useable drone.

X-Drone: Remote controlled Muvi-maker

The inbuilt Muvi camera captures your footage in Full HD at 1080p (amongst other output options), whilst the flight time is a tidy 20 minutes per removable battery. The pack is a 5,300mAh Li-Po battery and the largest on the market. Simply eject and replace to continue flying.

Meanwhile the remote control is a beautifully physical affair, with both iOS and Android’s extended capabilities accessed via the phone mount. Which means you can use the sticks you’re used to for flight control, then tap the screen as and when required. Live viewing is projected onto the screen, so you can get a bird’s eye view from the drone in realtime too.

X-Drone + remote control + an exchangeable battery = cinematic gold?
