Sony has built upon its imaging technologies with the Airpeak S1.  The drone flies with multiple sensors. By the same token, high-speed processing provides maximum performance. I’ve been tracking the drone ever since it was soft-launched. Finally seeing the specs makes it even more interesting.

With this Airpeak news, Sony expands the possibilities for professional creators. Their drone will enable unprecedented visual expression. Also drive a sense of Kando (wonderment at creating). Consequently, this is achieved with an advanced remote controller. It supports the production of high-quality aerial images. Even more, while freely controlling the aircraft.
