Here is a drone that comes with a big plus for those wanting an advantage in aesthetics. The Halo Drone Pro looks as cool as its name does, with a futuristic design and a sleek model to take to the skies.
From The minds of Halo Board, the Halo Drone promises a lot – but has a high price demanded for them. The company Halo Board is not a known player in the drone game. Unlike the DJIs and the Parrots of the world who are known for releasing quality drones and successful sequels to these drones, Halo Board is what you may call an untested player. They found fame and marketing in another field – electric skateboards and hoverboards.
These items do not have a connection with drones, other than the fact that these are also newer technology. So maybe, Halo Board made a decent transition to their drone lines.
Halo Drone Pro Review
The Halo Drone Pro is a massive beast. It is very bulky even though it weighs at about 1.3 kilograms. Even in its folded state, it still does not accommodate smaller common storage. This means that you need considerable space to keep it – as well as to carry it around. Because of this, the people at Halo Board sell the drone with its own backpack, which acts as its home and protective casing as well.
Outside the casing however, the drone still offers a bit of durability. Because of its folding design, it protects the more fragile parts with its very sturdy main body. This can be very helpful when you are on the road a lot – and you need to bring the drone in bumpy rides.
It offers a powerful 4k camera for photography and recording. For 4k resolution, it can cap at 30FPS, while for lower resolutions it can go as far as 60 to even 120 FPS. A unique feature you do not commonly find in other drones is its camera’s ability to detach. Yes, one can easily remove the 4k camera from the drone itself and use it as a stand-alone version. Perfect if you work around cameras a lot, since you only have to bring one instead of multiples during trips.
