Quickstart guide
The basic principle is quite simple: we use the GPS position of your phone together with the data of other sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, barometer and magnetometer) to know where you are and how you move. To process this data, we created specific algorithms that enable Hexo+ to follow and anticipate your trajectory and speed. We build our software from an image-making perspective to make sure your footage looks amazing both in terms of framing and stability.


We developed safety features for all possible failure scenarios. Depending on if you lose the GPS signal, your phone’s battery runs out, the drone’s battery runs out (and a lot of other scenarios) we’ll have your drone land safely.


Nope: when using Hexo+, you will have to anticipate the drone’s trajectory, just like you would with a trailer or a kite. The obstacle avoidance technology available today isn’t quite cutting it in our eyes but we’re actively researching solutions for the future.
