The prize: Drone X-Plorer Professional

X-Plorer Professional has a maximum control distance of 1000 metres and is powered by an integrated GPS system. 

Through its Wi-Fi technology, the drone pilot can see in real time everything within the view of the full HD camera from a smartphone, mounted upon the remote control, included in the package.

The drone also features an advanced telemetry system that constantly reports cruise data and is visible on the radio control screen.

Despite the advanced features of the drone, the experience is designed to be highly beginner friendly, with easy control features such as automatic take-off and landing, hovering function (automatic flight altitude maintenance), headless mode and automatic return to home .
