Many drone news says about the Zerotech Hesper quadcopter that it will be the next Mavic Killer. IMHO, as in features and specs, it is not even close to the little Spark. While the Mavic Pro has 3-axis gimbal, the Spark 2-axis and the Hesper only 1-axis. Its design also seems to be overtaken for 2018.
Zerotech were among the first to launch a compact and easy to fly selfie drone. Later, their Dobby was the inspiration for many cheap selfie drones like the JJRC H37 Elfie.
Just like the Mavic Air, the Zerotech Hesper also has internal storage, so you can save video and stills straight to the quadcopter and retrieve them later.
The Zerotech Hesper drone is available in two versions, BNF with phone APP control and RTF with dual control mode (APP and RC).
