3DR IRIS+ Quadcopter Drone
The 3DR IRIS+ is all you need to get started shooting photos and video from incredible new perspectives. Powered by 3DR’s autopilot, IRIS+ is a robotic drone that will automatically fly itself where you tell it to go, while keeping a camera steady with two-axis gimbal stabilization. You can fly the IRIS+ manually using the controller or use the advanced 3PV Follow Me mode that turns IRIS+ into your own hands-free camera crew. The tablet-based software makes flight planning easy: If you can draw it, you can fly it. The IRIS+ power system gets you 16* minutes of flight time fully loaded, and you’ll want to fill every second. IRIS+ includes the advanced Pixhawk autopilot system, a high-capacity flight battery, battery charger, ground station radio, and remote controller: everything you need to make IRIS+your personal aerial photographer.

Ready to Fly - Inside the IRIS+ box is everything you need to fly. Simply attach the props, charge the battery, and you’re ready to fly manually with the included remote controller or autonomously with a Mac, PC or Android device.
Follow Me - 3DR’s 3rd Person View (3PV) Follow Me technology turns your IRIS+ into your own hands-free camera crew that puts you in the middle of your own adventure. IRIS+ can be easily setup to follow any GPS enabled Android device. Not only will IRIS+ follow you, but this advanced technology controls the gimbal to keep the camera centered on you, capturing sweeping cinematic video from a perspective unlike any other.
Automatic Mission Planning - Using the free DroidPlanner app, IRIS+ users can plan flights by simply drawing a flight plan on any Android tablet or phone. This allows for hands free flight control, your drone will go where you tell it to go, with virtually unlimited waypoints - even keep IRIS+ pointing to the same location via a Region of Interest (ROI) waypoint throughout the entire flight. This enables fun autonomous journeys, and automatically stabilized video capture that would be otherwise impossible.
Flight Protection - The IRIS+ can land itself automatically, or return to a home point if it travels out of range or runs out of battery.
*Flight time varies with payload, wind conditions, altitude, temperature, humidity, flying style, and pilot skill.
