J.ME Follow Me selfie drone from Feima Robotics
Feima Robotics, an unknown multi-rotor manufacturer, just announced their first selfie drone, called J.Me Follow Me.
Like most of the selfie drones, the J.Me comes without a physical remote control. The aircraft can be controlled in three ways trough your smartphone. While I’m already accustomed with virtual sticks and gyro control, I would be interested to test the voice control.
In front of the J.Me quadcopter is located a 4K camera. In order to allow smooth aerial videos, the camera is mounted on a 2-axis brushless gimbal. The camera features HD WiFi FPV (720P real-time image transmission).
Thanks to the optical flow and ultrasonic sensors, this Follow Me selfie drone can avoid obstacles by itself. Frankly, I doubt about the 100% accuracy of this feature.
Being powered by a 4s 3000mAh battery, the advertised flight autonomy is up to 23 minutes, which is comparable with the one my Phantom 3 Advanced has.
