The Blade Glimpse makes aerial photography and filming easy; a drone that lets you capture and view your footage through your smartphone in real time.
The Glimpse is Ideal for Aerial Filming Beginners
If you always wanted to get into aerial filming and photography, look no further. The Glimpse drone from Blade was designed especially for beginners. It is small enough (and durable enough) to fly indoors or outside and comes with an integrated camera built into the drone, allowing you to capture great photos and video indoors or outside.
Blade have designed this drone to ensure that the rotors are clear from the camera view and are protected through an integrated enclosure. Rest assured, this is a very durable quadcopter - it has a flexible airframe and lightweight construction.
The Blade Glimpse is powered by four coreless motors, with a rotor design that makes it ideal for drone operation (a spare set of rotors is included, just in case)! Running this setup is a 500mAh LiPo battery, which can easily be charged with the included USB charger. On a standard charge, you should be able to enjoy flight times of six to eight minutes.
FPV on Multiple Devices
This camera comes with first-person view (FPV) downlink; streaming 480p video in real time to your iOS or Android device over a 5.8GHz WiFi downlink. You can view this footage on the free Glimpse app, which is available from the Google Play and iTunes stores. Additionally, multiple devices can view the FPV footage simultaneously, thanks to the Team View function within the app. This camera can also be used to capture 720p HD video and take 1.0 megapixel photos. This footage can easily be stored on the included micro SD card (which can then be accessed through a micro USB port). This camera lens is adjustable; pivoting easily so you can capture the best vantage point.
A Great Drone For Beginners
Flying the Glimpse is very easy, thanks to the included Sensor-Assisted Flight Envelope (SAFE) technology. This technology is usually seen in larger drones and allows the Glimpse to easily handle windy conditions, making flight smoother. The pitch and roll limits are locked so you can stay in control at all times. Furthermore, the drone comes with electronic self-levelling, where the drone will automatically return to a hover attitude the moment you release the sticks. You will be able to capture stable photos and videos with ease.
Please note that this drone comes as a Bind-N-Fly (BNF) model, so you will need to supply your own radio. Please refer to the "What You Need" section below for more details. If you cannot wait to get started in the world of aerial cinematography, the Blade Glimpse is your dream come true. Order yours now.
