Sony today officially unveiled the Airpeak S1 drone, which was announced in winter at CES 2021. The novelty turned out to be not cheap: the price is $ 9,000. At the same time, the drone does not have its own camera for video capture, or even a stabilized gimbal for it.
Airpeak S1 is designed for use with Sony mirrorless cameras like A7S III, FX3 or Alpha 1. Gremsy T3 is offered as a gimbal gimbal – and you will have to pay extra for it. Flight autonomy with a camera is only 12 minutes. The drone itself can fly for up to 22 minutes without additional load, but there is little point in such operation.
The developers consider flight stability and wind resistance to be an important feature of the Airpeak S1. According to official figures, the drone remains stable in wind gusts up to 20 m / s (twice as much as the DJI Inspire 2 can afford), and five sets of stereo cameras and an infrared rangefinder are responsible for avoiding obstacles. Experts from the Japan Aerospace Research Agency participated in the fine-tuning of the drone.
The Airpeak S1 is quite fast: it takes 3.5 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 50 km / h. However, this is without the camera installed, and with it the drone will obviously be slower. You can use both the included controller and the Airpeak Flight app for iPhone or iPad (for now), and it even allows you to change the camera and gimbal settings. You can control the drone as one or two. In the second case, one is engaged in flight, the second is in the camera.
In addition to the controller, the Airpeak S1 package includes two sets of blades, two batteries and a charger. Deliveries of the new item are scheduled for the fall, and buyers will also be offered a service contract that will cover repairs from damage from falls.
