ProDrone’s Byrd Quadcopter Features A Clean, Apple Like Folding Design

Drones keep getting, and I’m going to use a technical term her, “cooler.” ProDrone’s Byrd is a great example. It’s a clean design that replaces any type of assembly process with a simple folding process. The retractable booms with folding props literally fold back up over the main body. It’s easy to store and tote with you because of this.

… a foldable quadcopter with up to 25 minutes of flight time, and an enough power for an impressive 4.5-pound payload (enough for a DSLR). It also looks a bit like a PSone.

Other features include the option for two controllers/transmitters to fly it, which seems as much a recipe for confusion as it does a safety feature, plus the option to swap out cameras, with ProDrone hinting at 4K, 1080p, and infrared options (plus support for GoPro). As is becoming the norm, features like follow-me/GPS flying, and HD video streaming are also included, along with DJI-like interior positioning (though no details on how that will work). Looks-wise, if the oh-so-sweet Lily had an evil sibling, it’d be the Byrd.
