XD Motion Drone at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park in Sochi
XD motion had to build a drone to fly long enough to follow the runs of the competitors from start to finish. Finally XD motion achieved a flying time of 16 minutes before the batteries need to be changed.
The technical specifications are as follows:
3 axis gyro head,
speed up to 70km/h to follow the slopestylers competitors
Last but not least XD motion needed to convince the Russian Federal Security Service to get a flying licence for Sochi. A lot of questions needed to be answered very accurately and the system was controlled many times. In the end it was worth to run through all the proceedures because the images delivered by the RPA Drone from the Slopestyle competitions were really great and astonishing.
