Videographers often have trouble with one element when it comes to capturing footage: water. And more precisely, crashing into it. Well, a French start-up may have solved that problem with the inflatable drone. The Airvada Diadon inflates and is ready to fly within 60 seconds and then folds down just as fast into an 8-inch package.
The hardware–motor and such–are packaged inside a waterproof case. And Airvada claims it weighs less than a half pound and boasts that the battery lasts up to 20 mintues. The package comes with a control tablet, pump, which is powered by CO2, the drone and the case. There is still no word yet on pricing but this tool has real potential (remember, this is just the first version).
