 New Wingsland Minivet FPV Quad.
 
Arriving Late June

http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing June 2016/wl-minivet[2]_695.jpg
Arriving In stock late June is the new Minivet FPV Quad from Wingsland.

http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing June 2016/wl-minivet[8]_395.jpg

It comes with a modular flight battery with built in battery level indicator. 

http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing June 2016/wl-minivet[4]_395.jpg

The Minivet is a next generation FPV quad that comes complete with a  3-axis brushless gimbal and HD Camera that can capture 4 mega pixel still pictures and  1920 x 1080 30fps High Definition video.

One of the best features of the Minivet is the POI or Point Of Interest mode.  To set POI, you simply fly over your Point Of Interest, then reverse back away as far as you want to set the radius, then operate the  POI mode switch.  The Minivet will circle around the POI at the radius you set, facing in at the POI.  Very cool!


http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing June 2016/wl-minivet[6]_695.jpg

The Minivet comes with a mode changeable 10ch 2.4GHz transmitter, to which Model Engines have specified a larger 5in screen with sunshades for view live video from the camera.  The screen also displays flight data and time information. With an Australian Compliant 25mW video transmitter, the FPV range is quoted at up to 150m in ideal conditions with a time-delay below 100 milliseconds to ensure smooth graphics during FPV flying.   (You must remember that there is a regulatory requirement to maintain line of site at all times).

The Minivet also comes with a Return To Home mode that in our testing was amazingly accurate.

Overall, this is a great value package which takes the hassle of buying separate components, and will get you flying, filming  and into FPV with just one purchase.


Arriving In stock late June, backorder one today...
