Retractable Landing Gear!

We're very excited about a tech upgrade to our large HoverCamera - the s800 based hexacopter. We now have retractable landing gear installed!

This means in flight we can just pull the landing skids up and stow them, and give a completely free 360-degree view for the camera. So now instead of having to rotate the HoverCopter in the air, to keep the landing gear out of the frame, we can just fly wherever and however we like, and independently control the shot with exact camera moves and sweeps.

We took advantage of this on two shoots in the last few days, and you'll be seeing the results soon. In the meantime, here is a little video showing the new retractable skids in action!
