Sure, an AR.Drone 2.0 will afford you 720p HD video recording in the skies for just 300 dollars, but how does 1080p with 11 megapixels of sensor sound in comparison? That’s exactly what Lehmann Aviation is offering on its new LFPV civil UAV. This $2,352 (1790â‚¬) kit is far less expensive than the company’s $17K LP960 from a few years back, but it certainly isn’t lacking in the drool inducing features department — and yes, it’ll capture straight up photographs, too. Apart from letting you conduct reconnaissance of your local strip mall, the LFPV packs a “live data connection” to keep you informed about its GPS coordinates and altitude, among others things, like how soon you’ll need to recharge. Better yet, it uses the same Ground Control System as Lehmann’s other flyers (perfect for when it’s time to upgrade), offering an 800 x 480 live video stream of your journey and total control of where you’re piloting the aircraft. Best of all, the LFPV even packs autopilot if you need to take a break from the controls . We’d be remiss not to point out Eye3’s $999 bring-your-own-camera hexicopter for those already equipped with a beefy ILC shooter, but if the LFPV is right up (or over) your alley, you’ll find a full press release and video just past the break.
