A20 Camera Drone Preview from AEE at CES


In this episode, the Roswell Flight Test Crew speaks with Michael Dotson, the senior director of sales for AEE Technology about the company's latest high-end, consumer-level camera drone, the A20. It incorporates a three-axis camera gimbal, an optical flow sensor for precision position hold at low altitude and retractable landing gear – a novel feature on such a small aircraft. The aircraft is flown with a controller that includes both conventional sticks and a module that can be removed and used to direct autonomous, waypoint-driven operations and the “follow-me” flight mode. Video is streamed from the aircraft to the user's smart phone.
