Lily Camera
Lily Camera

The idea to develop this drone was born in the distant 2013, in the basement laboratory of the University of California at Berkeley robotics. Guys Henry Bradlow and Vahram Antonyan were the first to consider the idea that the drone will act as a fully autonomous self-gadget. Dron was given the name Lily Camera and its main task is highly intelligent, high-quality photo and video shooting from the air in fully automatic mode, it is not afraid of water and has compact dimensions.

Lily Camera

The weight of the Lily Camera quadrocopter is 1.3 kilograms, and its dimensions are really impressive (26.1 × 26.1 × 8.18cm.) Like its appearance, no sharp corners only smooth streamlined lines. Materials of execution: black polycarbonate / brushed aluminum. Immediately striking drive screws of the quad, they have a folding mechanism for the convenience of transporting it in a bag or backpack.


Quadrocopter is protected from dust and water by the IP67 protocol (complete protection from dust and water, up to 1 meter immersion in water). This allows you to plant the drone on the water without fear of drowning it, as well as taking off the drone from the water is not a problem.

The main control panel (tracking device) of the drone is completely different from the usual control panels for UAVs, no joysticks, FPV monitors and antennas. This is a compact bullet bracelet with a diameter of just 5.2 cm (weight: 28 grams), with the main set of buttons for adjusting the operation of the drone, it can be fixed on your hand or simply put in your pocket. It is on him drone Lily will always be guided in the process of the whole flight - who has the remote that and in the frame! The console is powered by a built-in lithium-ion battery. Charged through the microUSB connector, one charger (comes bundled) as the drone. The work time is about 4 hours. Also in the bracelet are built-in microphone and barometer.

The console itself, unlike the drone, is not protected from water, but this is not a problem. In the kit comes a waterproof case. As mentioned above, the main console for the Lily camera quadrocopter will be a remote bracelet, but if you want to "move behind the wheel of a drone" and show the director's skills, you can always buy a classic control panel, for example, to shoot the best shots with a friend , But already independently and with his vision of an action packed shooting. The presence of a classic remote in the kit will greatly enhance the capabilities of the drone as a whole.

Flight properties

Drone Lily camera is able to reach speeds of up to 40 kilometers per hour, which can not but rejoice. High-quality photo-video shooting can be carried out at an altitude of 3 - 15 meters from the console and at a distance of 3 - 30 meters.


Onboard the Lily camera, the built-in FullHD camera with a viewing angle of 94º, the camera shoots photos with a resolution of 12Mp and video in 1920x1080p at 60fps or at a resolution of 1280x720p at 120fps allows the use of the " Slow Motion "for the beauty of the received video frames. All the footage is stored on a microSD memory card with a capacity of 4GB. (The expansion ceiling is not yet known)

Quadrocopter has a built-in lithium-ion battery, allows you to stay in flight for up to 20 minutes. Charging is via a 10A charger (comes with the kit). The time of full charge of the battery is 2 hours. At the moment this is the only information about the built-in power supply of the drone.

Extended capabilities

  • Change camera settings
  • Create custom snapshots
  • Editing and subsequent exchange of footage
  • Mobile application Lily (for iOS and Android to facilitate the use of the functions of the drone)


In order to launch the Lily camera drone you will need only a few seconds. Activate the wrist strap, set the quad support screws to the flight position and then turn on the drone itself (the button on its rear under the lid), the pendulum indicator on the front of the drone will light up, throw the quad up, the drone will fly and hang in anticipation of your further movement . To plant the drone, activate the function "Return to home" on the remote or from the gadget and pull out the arm, the drone land directly to you in the palm of your hand.
