PowerEgg Aerial Drone: PowerVision's PowerEgg aerial drone features a
unique egg-shape design and features the industry's first one-handed gesture
recognition remote control. PowerVision designed the PowerEgg to be the consumer
drone for everyone - for both enthusiasts and first time drone owners. Takeoff
and landing can be done with the push of a button so that anyone can fly
PowerEgg right out of the box. PowerEgg's sleek and innovative design addresses
user demand for easy drone portability with its pack-and-go features. It's
sleek, compact and portable; as well as easy to operate - making it simple for
anyone to launch and capture special moments on camera.
Visual-Aided Positioning System: The visual-aided position system is
ultrasonic and camera based, with the camera obtaining the current position of
the aircraft and ultrasonic waves used to measure the altitude so as to achieve
accurate hovering and positioning of the aircraft. The visual-aided positioning
system is located at the bottom of the aircraft and scan the ground beneath it for patterns, enabling it to
identify its position and move accurately. With this vision-aided positioning
system, the PowerEgg can fly indoors, low to the ground, and in GPS-free areas.
3-Axis Gimbal 4K Camera: PowerEgg's integrated 4K UHD camera can produce
professional-grade photographs and videos with panoramic 360°
views on a 3-axis gimbal, delivering stabilized aerial views with an
immersive "spherical" experience. The camera features a 1/2.3" CMOS image sensor
and a 95° FOV lens.
The 3-axis gimbal has a control accuracy up to 0.05°,
so the camera can take stable and smooth video/photos. You can also adjust the
pitch (0° to 90°)
and yaw (-120° to +170°).
- Video Recording: You can record video in 3840 x 2160
(UHD), 1920 x 1080 (FHD), or 1280 x 720 (HD). You can adjust the ISO Range
from 100-1600. Video is recorded in MP4 or MOV (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264).
- Photo Recording: Still images are recorded at 4254 x
3264 (12MP), 2840 x 2160 (6MP), or 2560 x 1920 (4MP). You can choose between
shooting modes - Single Shot, Burst (3/5/10 frames), Auto Exposure
Bracketing (AEB), Self-Timer (5/10/30s), and Time-Laps (1/2/5/10/20/30/60s).
You can also set the ISO Range (100-1600) and Shutter Speed (8s-1/8000s).
Still images are recorded in JPEG or DNG.
Note: Videos and photos are recorded to a Class 10 or
UHS-1 microSD (up to 64GB) - sold separately.
Two Types of Controllers: Two types of remote controllers are included
with the PowerVision PowerEgg - a one-handed gesture-based controller and a
standard two-hand controller.
- One-Handed Gesture Controller: The one-handed remote has motion
sensing capabilities, allowing you to interact with and manipulate the
drone in flight via gesture recognition through advanced, integrated
accelerometers and gyroscopes. You can control up-down, left-right, and
near-far motions. The gesture controller also offers push-button control for
shooting videos and photos, as well as once-click takeoff/landing and
- Two-Handed Remote Controller: For users that prefer a traditional control,
the PowerEgg also comes with a standard two-handed remote controller,
featuring joystick and push-button control. The standard remote
controller integrates one-click takeoff and landing, one-click
return-to-home, open and close of the landing gear, control of the gimbal
pitch and yaw, one-click back to position and face downward position, as
well as shooting videos and photos.
Note: The gesture-based remote controller requires GPS positioning and
thus cannot be used for flights indoors or in other environments with weak or no
Base Station: The included Base station features an integrated 2.4GHz
wireless HD image transmission system, allowing aerial footage from the
PowerEgg's camera to be streamed in real-time to the Vision+ app on your Apple
iOS or Android mobile device. Your Apple iOS or Android device clamps to the
Base Station. It delivers long distance real-time video transmission up to 3.1
miles (5 kilometers). The Base Station mounts to the standard remote controller;
it will simply rest separately from the gesture controller.
Vision+ App: The Vision+ App (for
Apple iOS 8.0+ and
Android OS 5.0+) provides real-time high definition video streaming on your
compatible mobile device with detailed flight data including associated
parameters and map information. The Vision+ App lets you access user-defined
flight modes and allows you to record your flight routes and then share them on
social networks. In addition to real-time video transmission, the Vision+ app is
sued for gimbal adjustments, waypoint settings, flight modes, electronic
fencing, return-to-home points, and flight logs. The app also provides real-time
voice prompt of alerts and reminders while in flight. The Vision+ app can even
be used for storage of recorded video and still images.
Flight Modes: The PowerVision PowerEgg has 3 flight modes -
P Mode (Professional), N Mode (Normal), and E Mode (Easy Control).
- P Mode (Professional): In this mode, sonar is used
instead of GPS and the visual positioning system. The aircraft is
essentially on full manual control.
- N Mode (Normal): In this mode, the aircraft uses GPS or
the visual positioning system, depending on their signal strength. If GPS is
unavailable, the visual positioning system and sonar are used to ensure
accurate hovering of the aircraft, including indoors. When neither GPS
signals not the visual positioning system satisfies the condition for proper
and safe flight, the system will automatically switch to Professional mode.
In t his case, only sonar is provided.
- E Mode (Easy Control): In this mode, the aircraft uses
GPS and there is no need to focus on the flight orientation of the aircraft.
There is a 10m radius safety zone with the user as the center of the circle,
where the aircraft cannot enter. The forward and backward flight direction
of the aircraft is relative to the operator. Pushing the right joystick up
will move the aircraft away from the operator, regardless of aircraft
Automated Flight Modes: PowerEgg's flight software includes multiple
automated flight modes that let you easily frame your shots while the PowerEgg
automatically manages its flight path. These automated flight modes include
Follow Me, Orbit, WayPoint, and Selfie mode. They are easily accessed through
the Vision+ app on your Apple iOS or Android device.
- Follow Me: In Follow Me mode, the PowerEgg will follow
who ever has the controller of the PowerEgg. Follow Me keeps the camera on
you while the drone keeps it relative height and distance from the subject.
It will stay 7 meters or further back if you need it to.
- Orbit: In Orbit mode, the camera is trained on a
specific subject. You can adjust the radius/diameter of the flight path, as
well as height it is flying at. Simply set your center point and radius, and
fly perfect circles around an object, creating stunning aerial visuals.
- Selfie: In Selfie mode the drone will move with a
distance of 7 meters in front of you staying trained on you. The distance
from you and the drone can be adjusted.
- WayPoint: You can place multiple waypoints on the map
of the Vision+ app, laying out your flight path before you even take off. so
you can focus on capturing content and let the drone fly for you. During the
set up of these way points, you can adjust the flight height for each and
have it land back at your location or where ever you decide you want it to
Auto Take-Off & Landing: The PowerEgg offers automatic take-off and
landing. Simply long press the automatic take-off button on the remote
controller until it vibrates. The aircraft ascends to a height of 1.3m above the
ground at a set speed and then automatically hovers in the air. Long press the
automatic landing button until it vibrates, and the aircraft starts to descend
at a set speed from the current position - subject to horizontal control during
Smart Return-To-Home: When Smart Return-To-Home is activated, the
aircraft returns to a pre-selected point from its current position. There are 3
kinds of return points - user location, aircraft starting point, and map
selection point. The take-off point of the aircraft will be selected as the
return point by default. The aircraft will also automatically return to home, if
it loses control signal or the battery is low.
Note: The Smart Return-To-Home mode may be used only when there is ample
Rechargeable Batteries: The batteries must be charged using the
included AC power charger.

designed smart flight battery which has a capacity of 6400mAh, operates at a
voltage of 14.8V, and has charging-discharging management capabilities. The
battery consists of high-energy cells and an advanced battery management
system to guarantee adequate power supply to the aircraft. It provides a
maximum flight time of 23 minutes. The current battery level may be check in
the Vision+ app on your Apple iOS or Android mobile device.
