This week’s video comes courtesy of Patrick Zimmermann from Switzerland. He’s had his drone for a short while, but he’s already been using it on snow tours, and is still discovering more about its features. Check out Patrick’s video taken with Staaker here:
Hey Patrick, why did you choose Staaker?
I choose Staaker as I was looking for an auto follow drone that is able to adjust its altitude when you are descending and no other drone of the well known brands I came across had this function. Also, looking at video reviews from other drones, they often lost the tracked person.
What was it like having a drone just following you and not having to control it?
At first, you’re a bit cautious but then you realize pretty fast that Staaker does exactly what it’s supposed to do, and that you can fully concentrate on your activity.
It was super easy to get started with Staaker. This is my first time using a drone and before I made the video I only tried it in a field for 5 minutes. Although, to be honest, I actually read the product manual for one. I haven’t played around with all of Staakers modes, but so far I really like the Follow mode.
How’s your experience using Staaker been so far?
My experience so far has been really great! I was overwhelmed when I saw the footage for the first time. Also I think its really compact, but after a couple of hours of ski-touring / skiing I start to feel the 1.5kg on my back...therefore I will probably mostly bring it along on shorter trips than full day adventures.
I had a crash on the third flight as I had it following me really low over ground (like 1m) and when I went over a jump, it flew right into it. But nothing happened, and I was able to start it again straight away.
Is there anything else you liked that stood out for you?
Yes. I liked the fact that it was produced in Norway.
