New Xiro Drone Xplorer V Camera Quad Redefines 'Ready to Fly' -- 350mm Quadcopter's Unique Drone & Controller Design, Built-in Smartphone Cradle & Stable Flight Set New Ease-of-Use Standard for Aerial Photographers

For every aspiring aerial photographer who has ever struggled to master the art of flying a drone, help has arrived! Xiro Drone's 350mm Xplorer V camera quadcopter is engineered and pre-tuned for no-hassle startup, provides the market's most intuitive controller and ingenious smartphone holder for an FPV view of whatever you are filming on the system's free camera app, and stays stable even in windy conditions. If you can drive a car, you can fly the Xiro with zero effort from day one.

Packaged with a 3-axis stabilized gimbal and 1080p/30fps HD camera, the $799.99 (MSRP) Xiro Drone Xplorer V is being released in North America through a partnership with leading radio control supplier Hobbico. It will be demo'd at Hobbico's Booth 100 at the InterDrone international drone conference running through September 10-11 in Las Vegas, and available for sale in photography, farm and hobby stores and online at www.XiroDrone.com in late October.

Sleeker, Smarter Engineering

Whether you're recording farm fields, vacation landscapes, video selfies or any other kind of aerial video or still photography, the Xplorer V's innovative industrial design and flight control system deliver an easier, more stable flying and photographic experience than ever before. Unique features include:
  • An industry-first modular design that allows users to snap both the gimbal and the battery pack into place, eliminating the need for screws or tools during setup or battery changes.
  • A built-in smartphone cradle that is recessed into the controller. It pulls out to hold a phone for FPV monitoring, swivels to the user's preferred glare-free angle, and retracts when not in use, avoiding bulky and hard-to-handle clamp-on solutions.
  • An exclusive controller form factor and control layout that turn even novice drone pilots into pros. Features include Auto Take-Off/Landing, Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC) and Return Home buttons, three flight control levels on a slider switch, four flying control modes, and smart LED indicators showing remote battery level, GPS, aircraft and Wi-Fi connection status – all with a different look and feel than anything on the market.
  • Wind-resistant construction enabling the Xplorer to fly steadily and hover almost motionless even in inclement weather, aiding flying as well as image capture.
  • A smart GPS flight control system that takes the effort out of steering the drone to its destination while also offering position holding, altitude lock and stable hovering, freeing users to focus on watching their live video stream and remotely adjusting the camera to get the footage they're looking for
  • 16 programmable waypoints in the FPV camera app – a first at this price point – for easy creation of a flight path for the next aerial reconnaissance or photography session. The app, available for both iPhone and Android, also displays flight altitude, speed and distance to WiFi connection strength, transmitter battery level and Xplorer battery level, and can be used to adjust camera settings remotely.
Smooth, Stable, Blur-Free Video

On the photography side, the Xplorer V's 3-axis stabilized +-0.02-degree gimbal and high-performance HD camera yield crisp, clear 1080p/30fps and 720p/60fps HD video as well as 14-megapixel still images. The camera also supports burst mode, timed capture and slow motion recordings, and has Follow Me and 360-degree Selfie capabilities that can be controlled from the camera app.

The Xplorer V also offers:
  • A Return Home safety function that is automatically activated when the unit loses connection with the remote control or when the battery level is critically low, complementing the manual Return Home button on the transmitter
  • A 5,200-mAh lithium polymer (LiPo) battery that runs up to 25 minutes on a single charge
  • A 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi range extender that snaps onto the back on the controller, extending the effective connection range between the smartphone and the Xplorer to as much as 500 meters in an open, unobstructed area
  • A 1,000-meter (0.61 mile) range
  • Vibration alerts on the controller for battery, Wi-Fi, distance and 5.8G connection issues
  • Micro-SD card support up to 32GB
In addition to the Xplorer drone, controller, gimbal and camera, the Xplorer V package also includes the 5200mAh Smart Battery pack, Wi-Fi range extender, intelligent chargers for both the battery pack and remote control, a power supply for the chargers, two sets of four propellers, and multilingual manuals.

The Xiro Drone series also includes the Xplorer, a base package without a camera or gimbal, and the Xplorer G, featuring a 3-axis gimbal for GoPro Hero 3/4 cameras (camera not included).
