Hobbico ORA UAV


Hobbico announced a new UAV, the ORA, at CES 2015.  It has a 1080p HD camera and a 7″ OLED touchscreen as part of the transceiver (which operates at 5.8 GHz for better reliability).  The OLED will undoubtedly give the screen great readability regardless of the sun.  The ORA has a return to home feature, programmable GPS waypoints, and even a parachute – according to the video below.  It sounds like it has integrated performance and safety in one unit.

I have had my eye on the Parrot Bepop, but the Sky Controller is not on the market.  I’ve also been looking at the Phantom 2 Vision +, but the price tag is high.  By the way, all there of these UAVs are export controlled, so don’t plan to take it overseas with you.

It is an interesting name, and one report had it as the “Aura,” but best I can tell it is the ORA.  Hobbico does not have the specs, release date, or price on their website but I’ll keep an eye on it.  It is expected early this year.
