The U.S. computer scientist Kellie Sigler has worked with her husband, made a drone for photographers and filmmakers. The Hexakopter is strong enough that he can also carry a professional DSLR. Eye3 is a hexacopter, an unmanned helicopter with six rotors. The body of the drone is made of glass and carbon fiber parts, so the drone is, according to the developer Kellie Sigler lightweight but stable. The star-shaped hull design with the skids weigh only 500 grams.
The UAV can fly autonomously, but it can also be controlled remotely. The control of the drone in the air takes on an open-source hardware, the Board Ardu pilot Mega 2 (APM). Various sensors provide a stable position in the air. For navigation, it has GPS. The route is planned via Google Maps. A complete Eye3 drone costs $ 1,500.
