ELF-X : 3D FPV Quadcopter With VR
ELF-x quad is the ever low-cost open source Quadcopter providing AR plus VR experience. Using the most affordable VR device Google Cardboard, 3D printed shell, smartphone Bluetooth 4.0 to control (save joystick), combined with PCB construction, we created the best VR drone at such low price. The coolest thing is, the wifi camera will capture 720P video for real-time transmission to the mobile phone to present wonderful AR (Augmented Reality) experience.
There are also many to be improvement, at same time we need more external help from hobbyist.ELF-X will be pre-ordering early Oct at ElecFreaks store, starting only 300 pcs. For the very first batch, sorry will not wifi camera and google cardbaod which we are still upgrade more stable fly firmware. Keep download our newest firmware, you can mount 720p wifi camera in future.
We will sell at cost price, hoping to get valuable and useful feedback in return.
