The video is broadcast using a smartphone and a mobile application instead of the built-in screen in the remote control. With this solution, the manufacturer solved several problems at once. Firstly, everyone has a smartphone and you do not need to overpay for an additional color monitor built into the remote control. Secondly, the remote control has become much smaller and takes up much less space. Thirdly, thanks to the mobile app, wide functionality is available, a lot of settings and features implemented in the drone.

No matter how high quality your quadcopter’s camera is, it’s impossible to make a good video without stabilization.

This makes the video image smooth, as if you were shooting a video with a tripod. Just awesome!
