GDU reveals their Premium Byrd drone that focuses on power and portability

gdu-premium-byrdThere are so many different kinds of drones that are available in the market right now, you would be hard pressed to make an informed purchase decision. Most of them are able to offer more or less the same range of specifications at a price point that you are comfortable with. However, GDU intends to up the ante, hoping that you will not end up upgrading your drone once every year because of the obsolescence race, but rather, concentrate on the kinds of camera that you will attached to their spanking new Premium Byrd drone.

The highly anticipated Premium Byrd drone from GDU is unique in the sense that it comes with a 2.8 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal. Touted to be one of the most capable consumer drones that can be found in the market today, you as the end user will find it marvellous that you can quickly and easily switch out gimbals for different camera configurations. In the near future, you will also be able to benefit from the ability to add DLSRs as well as mirrorless cameras models to the unit thanks to the Universal Gimbals.

Sporting a foldable design that makes it a snap to tote the Premium Byrd drone around, it has also been specially built from ground up in order to solve majority of issues that users are faced with when it comes to drones. The Premium Byrd drone comes with extremely strong rotors that are able to lift up to a 5lb payload for bigger cameras (DSLRs and mirrorless types), while sporting a modular design that will allow users to quickly and easily switch out gimbal/camera packages. This means you can play around with your collection of HD cameras, GoPro and 4K cameras, and as mentioned earlier, the future will see support for DLSRs and mirrorless cameras thanks to the Universal Gimbals.

In other words, you purchase the Premium Byrd drone but once, and then use all of your money in the future to upgrade your equipment as the Premium Byrd brings the latest DSLR around for a spin. This $999 drone comes with 29 minutes of flight time on a full battery, a guaranteed 1000-meter video downlink system, and a more advanced OFDM system.
