Easy-flying drone


The Livestreamer LS1 from Rotor Concepts sends live pilot-eye video to its controller from altitudes up to 1,500 feet. The $500 plane also has an autopilot mode and the ability to record what it sees at 720p HD. 

Here's what the company says: 

The LiveStreamer (LS1) has autopilot and remote start/stop recording from it’s on-board camera. "FPV technology puts you in the cockpit with the on-board camera feeding 720p live video back (up to 1,500 feet) to the radio which has a built-in 3.5” video screen so you can fly from the aircraft's point of view. 

Rotor Concept’s LS1 is a great way to begin flying with FPV technology. Comes almost ready to fly. Just plug the wings together, glue on the tail, charge the batteries and its ready to go!

Controller operates up to 2,500 feet distance. Flight time varies depending on wind environment (~15-30 mins). Able to lift 3 ounce payload (example: a GoPro HD
Hero 3 camera) Possible applications include law enforcement, public events, private investigations, film and entertainment productions, and real estate/property surveys.
