LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A brand new form-factor in camera drones will soon be available to consumers worldwide. Meet LeveTop: the light, simple-to-use, autonomous folding camera drone that’s taking Kickstarter by storm.
LeveTop’s upcoming T1 model weighs just 350 grams (.77 Lbs), boasts an impressive 20-minute flight time and beautiful sleek design, ready to take off at a moment’s notice. The smart drone has a unique, patented quadruple folding frame that allows users to launch the drone with one click on their smartphones and capture high-resolution 1080p photos within seconds.
“LeveTop was born out of our realization that while there were many compact drones on the market, there was not a single model that combined the fun and ease of use of a personal drone with the extensive featureset of a professional device,” says LeveTop CEO Longway Wang. “LeveTop is designed to deliver on both of the those fronts—its foldable design makes it ultra portable and travel-friendly for any drone enthusiasts.”
The LeveTop T1’s Kickstarter campaign has already raised over $150,000 within two weeks of launching. The excitement has already helped the project exceeded its goal by over 600%, with more than 30 days left.
What helps the T1 stand apart among a sea of drone competitors is its use of CMOS camera technology. Users can get clear photos, completely hands-free. The T1 is the world’s first drone to come with CMOS technology, as they’ve only been available on professional digital cameras in the past.
It also comes with Motion Controlling technology, which allows users to pilot the drone by simply tilting their smartphones, and Autonomous Object Tracking, which uses GPS and vision positioning during flight mode.
