Mantis Q Lifestyle
With the all new Voice Control feature the Mantis Q gives users the freedom to take a photo or begin recording video without having to manually take their hands off of the controls. Mantis Q responds to commands such as “Wake up” for powering on, “Take a picture”, “Record a video” and “Take a selfie”. It also responds to the flight commands such as “Take off” to automatically start flying and then come up to a hover or auto-landing commands such as “Return home”.
Facial Detection and Gesture Control
Users just smile at the drone to activate face detection and as soon as the Mantis Q “sees” the user’s face, it takes a photo from up to 13 feet away. In the unique Gesture Control mode a hand wave detected by the Mantis Q prompts it to click a photo.
Capture your adventures in stunning 4K
Mantis Q’s integrated camera allows recording high resolution photos and videos. The MicroSD card included in the Mantis Q, supports pictures with a resolution of 4800×2700 (16:9) or 4160×3120 (4:3) pixels to be saved in JPEG or DNG format for up to 4K of recorded videos. In up to Full HD (1920 x 1080), they are electronically stabilized live. The camera can be tilted upwards by up to 20 degrees or downwards by 90 degrees during flight. The Mantis Q also comes with automatic flight modes such as Journey, Point of Interest and Orbit Me for cinematic camera flights.
Indoor and outdoor flying
The down-facing dual sonar sensors and infrared detection make the Mantis Q completely safe and stable to be flown indoors and outdoors.
