One of the hottest items at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, the ORA is the perfect vehicle for up and coming aerial media enthusiasts. This 370mm wheelbase quadcopter includes a Reflec on-board 1080p video camera, ten channel transceiver, gimbal, battery and charger. Video downfeed is via an exceptionally reliable 5.8GHz signal. The included Journey ten channel transceiver features a built-in seven inch touchscreen FPV display and is powered by a two cell 5400mAh LiPo. A separate
OLED telemetry screen displays valuable flight data such as GPS coordinates, altitude, and battery power status.A detachable sunshield and neckstrap are also included. ORA functions an be programmed using the Journey’s Android interface. The included 7000mAH flight battery enables flight durations of up to 30 minutes, with a range of up to 500 meters! GPS capabilities enable Return to Home failsafe functionality.
- GPS Flight Control GPS programming options enable the ORA to virtually fly itself. It can hold steady at a chosen altitude and position, or execute complex flight patterns set with numerous separate Waypoints (coordinates can be saved and the identical path flown again any number of times). To focus filming on a specific area, the pilot needs only enter the desired coordinate using Focus Point. The ORA then flies completely around that point at the preferred altitude.
- First Person View (FPV) On its large, 17.8 cm (7”) FPV touchscreen, the ORA’s Journey transceiver displays what the onboard Reflec camera sees in real time. Pilots can frame scenes for filming by remotely controlling the camera gimbal. One-, two-, and three-axis gimbal options are available, each designed also to accept GoPro® cameras.
- Touchscreen Programming The transceiver has a built-in Android™ device for programming ORA functions through the touchscreen. Between flights, pilots can use its Wi-Fi capability to browse the Web, download maps, check Facebook and read email. A separate OLED telemetry screen displays valuable flight data such as GPS coordinates, altitude, and battery power status.
