HoverAir Camera X1 - The Flying selfie stick

Postby sidd finch » Tue Aug 15, 2023 11:29 am

The HOVERAir X1 is an ultra-light 125g, lighter than most smartphones. When folded, it can easily fit in your pocket or bag so you can bring it anywhere!

I agree with you. The HOVERAir X1 shoots 2.7K video @ 30fps,1080p and 1080p @ 60fps. Each battery lasts about 10 minutes (2 pak).

To me I don't see this a a main camera but more like something to add to your footage from another camera just to add a bit of spice to the video. The only potential drawback is that it only seems to have the selfie view. I would prefer a different angle. Say la vie.

I wish it wasn't retailed for close to $500 though.

I agree for what it does and how much it costs, I think the price should be way lower. DJI drones which are way better costs less.

A little more in depth on the drone. Footage looks good for 2.7k it's just that darn cost... lol
