FUAV Smargle – the next Phantom killer?
I already introduced an interesting multi-rotor model from FUAV, the Seraphi-GPS. This new FUAV Smargle 1 is something totally different in a positive way. It has a very stylish design with retractable landing skids that are absolutely necessary for aerial filming.
The FUAV Smargle’s remote controller is designed to be used for first-person view flights. On the top of the transmitter is a build-in LCD display that allows displaying live images from the quadcopter’s camera.
Powered with a high capacity 6000mAh battery, the FUAV Smargle quadcopter has about 20-25 minutes flight autonomy.
With a high-quality 14MP camera and 3-axis, brushless gimbal looks just the perfect Christmas gift for daddies like me. Frankly, I’m truly interested to review this FUAV Smargle FPV Quad. Hopefully, my wife will read this article and help Santa Claus to get one for me too :D
