Evaluation

In a restrictive product category of drones, this product demonstrates a meticulous approach to design right down to the last detail, with careful consideration to the materials and the shape of the components. Not only the drone unit itself, but also the charging equipment, cable, and storage case are attractive. This must have been quite a tough challenge, given how high customer hopes would have been for a drone designed by the famous GoPro. In fact, the result is a design that follows the tradition of the existing range of GoPro cameras, while maintaining the characteristically carefree look of a drone.
