If you’re a budding filmmaker who’s ever watched a Hollywood action film in envy over their insane aerial shots, then your time is nigh. The Staaker Auto-Follow Drone is your directorial eye in the sky, using a mind-boggling AI system to give you the best in autonomous drone footage.
It can be controlled via a remote tracker that’s used to keep the drone focused on you and also customise the way it shoots. There’s five different flight modes to choose from including follow, circle, compass, hover and scenery, all of which give you more cinematography options than you can poke a stick at. The drone has a max speed of 80km/h and a range of 30km and can be used in almost any weather conditions.
The Staaker also gives new meaning to the phrase ‘pick-up-and-shoot’ and can be ready to go in less than 30 seconds, with a flight time of 30 minutes. Batteries can be swapped out in 10 seconds and the whole unit then folds back up into a light, compact package for the trip home. It’s compatible with the GoPro Hero 3, 3+ and 4 models and uses a 3-axis gimbal to stabilize the camera and ensure the smoothest of shots.
