Smart Flight Modes for Traditional Controller & (optional) Hands-Free Smartwatch

Smartwatch enables Auto-Follow & Auto-Tracking Gimbal for video at any angle.
Smartwatch enables Auto-Follow & Auto-Tracking Gimbal for video at any angle.

With advanced flight algorithms pre-programmed, the smartwatch empowers beginners to perform advanced maneuvers that even expert pilots have trouble performing...all at the push of a button.

We like to call the XEagle a "Cross-Over Drone" that keeps what we love about traditional quadcopters, but adds a bit more brains and a lot more excitement.

Advanced features for Flight, Control, Video, Safety & more.

With the click of a button your FlyPro Autonomous Drone will take flight, follow you, adjust altitude, start recording video, snap a photo, return home, land safely & much, much more...

FlyPro XEagle at a Glance

With all this, you no longer need to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to get the intelligence and features packed into the FlyPro XEagle Smart Piloted Drone.

Action Sport Enthusiast, Outdoorsman, Quadcopter Hobbyist or Aerial Photography Professional? 

Whatever your passion, the XEagle will transform beginners into professional pilots & videographers with ease.

Smartwatch for Hands-Free Flight or Traditional Quadcopter Professional Controller?

We like to call the XEagle a "Cross-Over Drone" that keeps what we love about traditional quadcopters, but adds a bit more brains and a lot more excitement with the smartwatch.

Either way, the choice is up to you… Perhaps both?

Simple, One-Click Smartwatch Piloting Controls Activate Advanced Algorithms.

Controlling all necessary flight requirements is easy with the XEagle smart pre-programmed flight algorithms.

Smart auto-piloting options are initiated at the push of a button.

With the advanced flight mode buttons, the smartwatch empowers beginners to perform advanced maneuvers that even expert pilots have trouble performing, all at the push of a button.

The unique ring bearing knob will allow you to choose where your drone is in relation to you.

Whether skiing, mountain biking or skateboarding, you'll appreciate the extra hands when they're needed most and will certainly appreciate a new perspective of video!

Just imagine you are skateboarding down the street and are in the auto-follow flight mode:

With the Ring Bearing Knob you can switch where the drone is in relation to you, forward, backwards, left, right, etc.

 Fly by mouth & auto follow

XEagle is not solely designed for autonomous piloting during sports...

Send it off to a explore a hard to reach, never seen area with the manual piloting controls or put on auto-flight and concentrate more on that cinematic masterpiece.

Freedom to Explore

Who knows where you’ll end up, if you get lost, signal or battery runs low, just know… it’ll get back safely with flight departure auto-return. 

Freedom to be Creative 

The controller allows you to manually pan the camera and take your creativity to the next level, ensuring that perfect angle and focus, while streaming/recording your video in real-time to your smartphone or tablet connected atop the controller.

Intelligent algorithms make complex flying maneuvers easy and safe (with no hands) while speeding through the sky above you.

With just one-click on the smartwatch or your smartphone app, you’ll fly like an expert pilot.

 With a built-in infrared photoelectric sensor can detect obstacles from 10cm up to 15 meters and avoid collisions by taking an alternate flight path.

Automatic Take-Off

Press and hold for 3 seconds to initiate takeoff then XEagle will position hold/hover at an altitude of roughly 8 feet.

Watch how easy it is to take off with XEagle.

Automatic Landing & Return Home 

Never worry about losing your drone due to signal strength, low battery or poor navigation skills.

By selecting the auto-return flight mode, your XEagle can automatically return to you or its take-off location.

Press once to start a vertical landing in current location, press again to terminate landing and initiate hover/hold mode in current position. Press and hold to initiate auto-return to departure point.

Perfect for nearly any sport, the XEagle will follow your every move at a height/distance you choose, at any speed up to 40km/h all while the camera gimbal tracks your every move.

Obstacle Avoidance & Auto-Follow

With Obstacle Avoidance Technologies, you can keep your eyes forward and never worry about losing your XEagle.
With Obstacle Avoidance Technologies, you can keep your eyes forward and never worry about losing your XEagle.

Most experienced pilots know how hard it is to create perfect circles, with the camera focused on a central point…

With Auto-Circle the XEagle flies in perfect circular rotations on a set radius and altitude, keeping the camera aimed at your target.

To add another level of creativity, you can even adjust the flight rotation speed or select a lower spiral altitude for a closer shot.

This mode allows you to draw curves or a flight route plan on your smartphone app and the drone follow this flight plan by itself and will land autonomously once it has completed its flight route. 

This is great for when you need extensive aerial footage when surveying large areas.
This is great for when you need extensive aerial footage when surveying large areas.

Before the flight route launches, you can easily set the altitude and speed and smartphone app will measure the expected length of the route and the flight time so you do not exceed range restrictions or power limits before takeoff.

The Hover and Aim feature instructs the XEagle to stay in one position above the ground, but constantly points the camera at your smartphone, controller or smartwatch.

This fixed and track option is perfect for tight places such as smaller skateparks, narrow forest trails, or for activities such as bungee jumping or base jumping where clearance from your equipment is important.

Film like a pro by getting sweeping multi-axis footage and panning 4k cinematic video.

 FlyPro XEagle is available in 4 versions:

                                                                                       

Risks and challenges

1. Making the transition from producing a small number of samples to full production will take some effort. We will accomplish this by working with out partners to build out a plan of attack.

2. We'd like to offer a more beautiful smartwatch, but we are struggling with the size of the voice module sensor. We will work with our engineering team to find a solution to downsizing the watch's internals, and put out the most impressive product possible.

3. Our infrared obstacle avoidance system has passed our preliminary tests, but requires more fine tuning to work perfectly. We will take the time to dial it in and make sure it works in an ideal fashion before going to market.
