CyPhy Set to Take the Air by Storm

Drones, we all want one. We might never actually use it for the intended use, but just to have it sat there for that one-time event where you need to go on a spy mission or look for that frisbee that landed on the roof; it just makes sense.

In recent years, the private drone sector has boomed and with it, companies are coming out of the woodwork to join in the fun and games; in this case it is CyPhy joining the fun. CyPhy is a small commercial drone company that builds very small amounts of drones. They have now set up a Kickstater fund page to get backing and start-up money from anyone interested in their new drone tech.

The CyPhy LVL 1 is a unique drone that has slightly inverted blades which enable silky smooth flight and incredible control, but don’t take my word for it; watch the video.

Some of the key features I love about the concept of this drone if the smartphone control interface and Geo-Fencing. Smartphone control is self-explanatory, but the Geo-Fencing I like the sound of; I could set the boundaries and let my daughter go nuts with the knowledge that she isn’t going to hit a tree or a house.

I love the sound of this drone and will be keeping an eye on it, under $500 is seriously tempting. Are you a drone fan? Do you own a drone? Let us know in the comments.
