Wow! We just received our review sample of the new, top of the Blade line of quadcopters the Chroma. Including the ST 10+ radio/controller with Android table and operating system, the Chroma breaks through the “quadcopter with a camera attached” category and enables you to actually concentrate on the photos and videos you shoot and forget about flying and controlling the quadcopter. Watch for a complete review in the October issue of MAN
The Controller’s main screen
The Chroma is so full of features it’s amazing including separate switches to control the camera angle as well as shoot photos and turn the video record on and off. (Above, any video hesitation is from my YouTube channel, as the original video is silky smooth!)
Without even reading the instructions, I simply charged the radio and the flight battery and headed out to the Air Age parking lot for a test hop. Here’s the video I shot. I was amazed at the stability of the Chroma and was actually able to totally forget about the quadcopter while I was framing the video and photos. And the video clarity and stability is awesome.
That’s Model Airplane News’ AC unit! Just to show you the clarity of the photos. This image was shot at about 45 feet away.
Watch for a review on this new flying camera in a future issue of MAN coming soon!
