The Flytrex Live adds internet and social capabilities to your personal drone, and also serves as a traditional black box in case your drone goes missing or crashes. Steve O’Hear from TechCrunch writes:
Personal drone enthusiasts — specifically, those who like flying quadcopters — have a new way to make the experience a lot more social. Meet the Flytrex Live: a ‘black box’-style flight recorder that connects to the Internet in real-time to unlock a burgeoning online community of drone hobbyists who can follow each other’s flight paths, take part in challenges and, in future, fly in groups.
