developed by french lehmann aviation, the LA100is conceived as the world’s first fully autonomous UAV drone aircraft. designed for capturing images and HD video using a GoPro, the system takes flight at heights of 80-100 meters, returning automatically to the user within 5 minutes. with options to mount the camera on the top wing or bottom wing for simultaneous use of two GoPro’s, the unit is capable of withstanding harsh environments and diverse climate conditions: from -25°C to +60°C, humid or dry air and high wind resistance. made mostly out of carbon fiber and foam, the LA100 is also easy to transport,  weighing less than 1 kg with a wingspan of less than 1 meter long.

  • Stop action .. maybe it flys too fast to make a good video platform as compared to a heli..?

  • There are far better designs that integrate the camera into the airframe for better performance. Also, it’s not the
    world’s first fully autonomous UAV drone aircraft. Hobbyists have been building programmed flight lightweight UAVs for years. I notice there is very little footage of actual flight or in-flight video.

  • Anyone have comments about which camera would be best for something like this? I was comparing a few of the more popular ones at http://bit.ly/11zHOkf but not much specific to flight lol. Any advice would be great!
