Sometimes, you can’t afford to make compromises. This is especially true when it comes to filming outdoor aerial footage.
You need a system that can be used in all conditions—and anywhere. After all, who wants to snowplow down a steep descent or ease up on the throttle just to ensure a flying camera can actually follow them? Similarly, who wants to limit their exploration, avoiding changes in altitude because of the constraints of their camera? We don’t, nor do our ambassadors—and we’re guessing you also share this sentiment.
HEXO+ is truly designed to be used in all situations. Our experience in action sports convinced us this was crucial. Simply put, to be successful a system needs to be easy to carry yet capable of flying in extreme conditions at high speeds. Needless to say, HEXO+ meets this criteria.
Our motors and propellers, for example, are especially compact. You can also remove these propellers, along with the drone’s feet and gimbal. This enables you to readily strap the drone to your backpack en route to your adventures. And because HEXO+ is activated with a smartphone app and flies itself, you don’t need a remote control. This hands-free approach also ensures you can remain focused on your adventures. Really, you can take HEXO+ anywhere.
Yet these features don’t come at the expense of performance. To confidently say that you can take Hexo+ anywhere, we’ve logged over 1,500 flights, testing HEXO+ in all seasons and in a range of altitudes in the United States, Canada, China, Chile, Switzerland, and France. Recently, we’ve been working with Xavier to test the system in Chile with a range of simulations conducted at 13,000 feet in elevation (4,200 meters). Based on tests in which we’ve flown the drone at 62% of its maximum throttle, we’ve been able to determine that HEXO+ is capable of flying up to an altitude of 27,000 feet (9,000 meters). No matter your adventure, your camera system won’t hold you back.
Thanks to its unrivaled performance, HEXO+ is the clear choice when it comes to aerial filming in extreme conditions. For proof, look no further than its capabilities:
For months now, world-class athletes and ambassadors have been testing HEXO+ in extreme conditions—and they’ve been stoked with the results. And if it’s good enough for them, we’re confident it’s ready to meet your needs.
