The ProDrone Byrd is trumpeted as the industry’s most powerful and portable consumer drone.

‘From the beginning we set out to solve the biggest problems with consumer drones today – lack of easy portability and swappable camera design,’ said ProDrone’s PR manager Joseph Haagensen.

He claimed: ‘The power, durability and portability of this device is a game-changer – when you add the modularity of the gimbal/camera combinations it will change the industry.

‘Our drones will put all-new power into the hands of outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers.’

The ProDrone Byrd, which boasts a flying time of 30 minutes, offers screen sharing for up to five devices.

The ProDrone Byrd costs from $949 in the US (price includes HD camera and gimbal). A 4K ‘premium’ version carries a $1,399 pricetag.

The PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo runs until 24 October at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.
