A little larger than the ubiquitous DJI Phantom drones, the Aviator is a big powerful beast fitted with a 720p HD 5.8GHz Camera. This drone doesn’t require a smartphone or app as imagery is transmitted to the included LCD screen using the 5.8GHz frequency. The biggest benefit of 5.8GHz over Wi-Fi is there is no noticeable lag in the picture seen onscreen. A major plus on any drone.
Being the size it is, the camera can be swapped out of the cradle and a GoPro or similar action camera can be attached should you require better quality footage. Fly time is around the 10-12 minutes mark and the range is about 200 metres which is double most in the brushed motor category.
