If this were boxing, the Mantis Q Drone would no doubt be the undisputed featherweight champion of the world. This little drone comes out throwing powerful punches. For instance, the Mantis Q is capable of voice control and uses facial detection and Gesture Control to respond to your hand signals. When not flying or shooting video, the Mantis Q folds up small and weighs only one pound. Best of all, the battery lasts a category-leading 33 minutes.
The Mantis Q records high-resolution photos, 4800×2700 pixels (16:9) or 4160×3120 pixels (4:3) stored to a MicroSD card in JPEG or DNG formats, and 4K video. The integrated camera can tilt upward by 20 degrees or down by 90 during flight. You can also use automatic flight modes such as Journey, Point of Interest, and Orbit Me.
Voice control is a new and exciting feature. The Mantis Q will respond to commands to take a photo when told to “Take a Picture” or “Take a selfie” or begin recording video with a “Record a video” command. It will also power on to the command of “Wake up.”
Mantis Q also comes with advanced indoor stabilization technology that features down-facing dual sonar sensors and infrared detection. The drone also has FAA-compliant software.
More than just a flying camera, Mantis Q is also capable of racing. With a top speed of 44 miles per hour in Sport Mode, Mantis is quick to respond to your commands thanks to its latency of less than 200ms.
