Taking pictures and recording video

Post by robcampbell » 31 Jan 2017, 20:57

I am trying to take a photo and record video but the only video that is being recorded is from my phone. It's hard to record via my phone and use the controllers. Also, I thought I'd be able to view the camera on the drone, not the camera on my phone.

When I set to always record I'm thinking the drone will always record but that isn't the case unless there is something that I'm doing wrong.

Any information will help.

Also, I'm looking to get another drone. I'm not ready to spend $500USD but I want to experience a drone that records and possibly one that has a viewer of the flight from the drone's perspective.

Hello and welcome,

The airborne night can not record videos. The video option in the app is only to record the drone with your iPhone while controlling it.

Sweet and delicious apps for your drones.

The drone cannot take video. I do think that it can take photos. (VGA res. I think) I have a hydrofoil and it has a stills camera. I'm pretty sure it's a modified version of the the hydrofoil drone.

The Airborne night only takes pictures. And not at a good quality either. Though I didn't buy mine for that. It does fly pretty good though.
