Espect Takes Off in Zhuhai, China (6 min 9 sec)


Tech Specs:
29-minute flight time (with standard payload)
2 KM operation range
Multiple payload options up to 800g
IP43 water protection level

Features:
1. Reliable and safe flight
The Espect has been developed for a variety of commercial applications which is accomplished by integrating highly engineered flight control, navigation, remote control, telemetry systems, and visible light/thermal imaging. Also incorporated into the reliable flight system is the integrated flight propulsion system and battery management system. The Espect is also equipped with an advanced flight shielding that is specially optimized to resist electromagnetic interference which makes flight near powerlines not only possible, but safe to do so. The integration of these systems into a modular design, combines to make a safe and reliable flight system.


2. Obstacle Avoidance System
Frontal obstacle avoidance sensors make the Espect detect objects within 10 meters and brake...Continue Reading

We tested the O2 plus in Shenzhen, China; the transmission distance was up to 4km. We can not wait to test it in the U.S.

GDU O2 Plus Transmission Range (0 min 59 sec)

We at GDU are very sorry for the delay of O2 shipping since it was released at InterDrone in September 2017. We spent months upgrading and polishing the gimbal for the pursoe of enabling O2 to pitch at -90 degree angle without any vibration. We also upgraded video transmission module to extend the range up to 1000 meters stablely in open areas. We firmly believe that it is better to let customers have a ready-to- market product than shipping it with flaws.
Please watch this video shot by O2 with new gimbal.

We will post more images and videos for you guys reviewing during CES 2018.

GDU O2-Everyone Everywhere Anytime

GDU O2-Everyone Everywhere Anytime (3 min 49 sec)


GDU O2 is the first drone to truly bring drone technology to anyone and everyone based on extreme usability, portability and price.

GDU O2 covers all the requirements for being the “perfect storm” of drone technology: it carries the lowest price for a full-function, portable drone that is safe and easy to fly and captures top-quality video. The GDU O2 is truly the best go-to option for the everyday drone – for everyone, everywhere, anytime.

GDU O2 Stats:
-Obstacle Avoidance: A binocular system prevents the drone from hitting obstacles in its flight path. Instead of flying toward the objects, it will detect the obstacles and hover.
-Gesture Identification: The camera can sense different gestures and perform smart tasks such as taking pictures, videos, move towards or away from the pilot, and hover at a safe distance.
-Follow-Me Mode: Uses a visual sensor to detect the target and follow the target with a set distance.
-Orbiting Function: Uses visual sensor to detect the target and circle around it with the camera facing the target.
-Smart Shot: With the smart shot modes, the O2 can take 10-second short videos in three different pre-set flight modes: Circle, Rocket and Dronie.
-Selfie Mode: The O2 will identify an object and fly to a pre-set distance to get the best shot – both photos and videos are available in this mode.
-Burst Mode: The O2 will taking five burst pictures with five different zoom specs from the same spot with a single button press to give multiple perspectives in one shot.
-Vertical Burst: The O2 will take off vertically with camera facing down in 3m/s speed while take continuous pictures every two seconds to give multiple perspectives in one shot.
-Time-Lapse Shot: Record and play ratio 6:1
-Slow-Mo Shot: Record and play ratio 6:1

GDU Byrd Premium 2.0-Discovering Iceland

GDU - Byrd Premium 2.0 - Discovering Iceland (3 min 59 sec)

People often ask me now does the GDU Byrd Premium 2.0 compare with the DJI Mavic Pro? Both are foldable portable drones and that is really where the similarity ends. Whilst the Mavic Pro has a fixed gimbal and camera the GDU Byrd Premium 2.0 has been designed to accommodate a number of different gimbals and cameras making the Byrd Premium 2.0 one of the most versatile multi-purpose flying platforms available today.

The Byrd can be setup with a 1080P camera, GoPro style cameras, Thermal Imaging camera, ILDC (Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera) gimbal, 10 times zooming gimbal & camera and a one button stretching gimbal & camera. Rather than buy one quadcopter for one application and another to undertake a different task the Byrd can be adapted to suit the demands of different and varied scenarios. Significant cost saving is plain to see, training times will be reduced and operators will be far more comfortable using one flying platform.

Attached photo 1 was shot by GDU Byrd 2.0 + ILDC gimbal + Sony RX 100 M2 camera.
Here is GDU thermal camera (resolution 640*480) photo (attaced photo 2) &video:

Byrd Premium 2.0 diagonal size is 622mm when unfolded; its net weight is 1890g which is considerably larger and heavier than the Mavic Pro (see attached comparison photo) and has been constructed to fly in winds of 29-38km/h level.

GDU also offer a Mobile SDK so users can customize the functionality according to their needs perfect for agriculture mapping (see example video) and a vast variety of applications.

The team at GDU are committed to working closely with their clients throughout the Globe to ensure they get the maximum benefit from this unique innovative flying platform.
