Need Faster Time to Insight?

It starts with 4G LTE connectivity on Verizon, the country’s most reliable network. This enables faster time to insight, redundant command and control — and even beyond visual line of sight flights (currently permitted in the United States with a waiver from the FAA).

Let’s see how.

In addition to 4G LTE connectivity, it features obstacle avoidance in every flight direction, 48 MP imaging, 4K video, and up to 32 minutes of flight time in an airframe that weighs less than 2 pounds.
