Leon is one of our Kickstarter backers and beta testers. After seeing a video he published we gave Leon a call to hear his first impressions.
Leon's First Impressions
AD - What will you be using AirDog for?
Leon - Well I’m a bit of an extreme film nut. So surfing, kitesurfing, MTB, just some general filming. AirDog is about me capturing me. I’m always filming everyone else and now I can capture myself from a cool perspective - with aerial footage.
AD - How can you describe the feeling of using AirDog for the first time?
Leon - Nervous! I kept looking over my shoulder, but once you get used to it and realize it does exactly what its supposed to, you have fun. And I was itching to get back and look at footage. I was quite skeptical about the smoothness of the video, but it’s amazing what I’ve gotten from the first couple of flights.
AD - Were you surprised by anything?
Leon - Well with the controls there aren’t too many buttons, but you have enough to have flexibility. Skipping between between joystick mode and adjusting the altitude is easy - positioning AirDog is really easy to maneuver, I think it’s perfect.
AD - How easy or difficult is it to use it?
Leon - After going through the manual it’s intuitive - very intuitive and very clear.
AD - Is there anything you’d like to add?
Leon - I’m excited about the potential benefits - I fly other drones, but at the end of the day, it's groundbreaking, having something that you don’t have to control is amazing.
We totally agree, with AirDog’s Auto-Follow flight modes, you’ve got a drone that captures what you want while you focus on your action! Groundbreaking is great to hear :).
