FL CN - Falcon / Quadcopter for Athletes

FL CN - Falcon
FL CN - Falcon

When performing sports like windsurfing or kitesurfing, athletes have to be as focused as possible.
FL CN gives athletes the chance to carry a multicopter, launch it, have it fly autonomously and steer it through voice control without getting distracted.
The system has a unique way of unfolding it`s cantilevers, which makes it possible to activate it with only one finger. It is designed for hobby- and professional athletes as well as kite- and windsurfing schools. Teachers can use it as teaching assistant, which keeps watch on apprentices and their actions.The created footage allows detailed debriefings and therefore higher success rates.
