CyPhi Works Launches 1st Consumer Drone

CyPhi Works, the company mainly known for its tethered drones for military and commercial use, has recently come up with its first consumer drone – CyPhi LVL 1 — which it has recently launched on Kickstarter, with the campaign currently ongoing and attracting strong support from the public. The company targets consumers who are avidly into aerial photo services.

CyPhy Works, which is located in Boston, is trying to raise $250,000 by June 17. Backers who contribute $495 will get the base model of the robot. The company expects to ship the drones in February 2016. […] “We’ve invented a better way to fly,” Greiner said. The key to that is the robot’s advanced software that keeps it on a level flight path. Greiner (co-founder and CEO Helen Greiner) said that makes the drone simpler to fly, especially for novices. CyPhy Works also developed an app for iOS and Android that allows pilots to fly their drones using their touchscreens. – Read more here:

A combination of novel software and hardware makes the LVL 1 easier to fly, Greiner says. Unlike most multirotor drones, she explains, “It doesn’t tilt forward or backward as it flies, which is what can make flying really difficult for novices.” And a camera integrated into the body, rather than attached to a bracket than hangs from it, means it is less likely to be damaged. – Read more here

The features of the CyPhy LVL 1 are designed such as more consumers will be able to use it with ease, especially beginners — a drone for the masses, as Roboticist Greiner envisions it to be. “You can take it out of the box and it’s ready to fly right from a cell phone,” said Greiner, also the co-founder of Bedford-based iRobot (Nasdaq: IRBT), the company behind the popular robotic vacuum cleaner, the Roomba. – Read more at:

With such outstanding features to make drone flying easier, more controllable and capable of taking exceptional footage, the CyPhy LVL 1 will soon be the most in demand photography drones for uav aerial photography services.
