Nissan X-Trail X-Scape, the first car with the standard drone
The special SUV version includes a Parrot Bebop 2, ideal for taking pictures from the top
Taking pictures to be published on the internet has become a hobby that many people can not escape. This trend was first acquired by Citroen, which integrated a camera into the C3 rearview mirror, but an even more original and out of line solution is offered on the Nissan X-Trail: the X-Scape version is equipped with a drone , Or those small flying devices that are used to take pictures and take videos from above a location. The Japanese company had experienced this novelty on the Navara EnGuard prototype, but in that case the drone used to be a device to perform security inquiries. The X-Scape thus becomes the first car equipped as standard with such a device.
The drone follows you on bike races
The device chosen for the occasion is the Parrot Bebop 2, which is quite light (500 grams) but with a certain high autonomy: the flight time, as announced by the manufacturer, is in the order of 25 minutes. The Bebop 2 lets you shoot in full HD quality, shot in RAW format, and takes a 14-megapixel camera, which can also be accessed through the Follow Me mode: the drone follows the person to whom it is associated and thus improves the management of the Racing, cycling or for example on a canoe. Along with the drone comes a backpack where to put it together with the accessories, ie the remote control and a screen to look at the camera’s perspective. To fly a drone requires certain accidents, as determined by the National Civil Aviation Authority: those not for playful use do not need compulsory insurance, but should not be used in cities, parks and in the vicinity of An airport. The patent is compulsory only for professional activities with large drones.
