Lehmann Aviation fully automatic personal drone now features Windows Phone Operation Centre


imageLehmann Aviation has just upgraded its LA100 fully automatic personal drone with support  for OperationCenter software on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.

The drone is the first which required no piloting skills or background at all: all the user had to do was to connect the battery, launch the drone and wait 5 minutes for it to come back to the launch site with HD images on the SD-card captured via the included GoPro camera.

The LA100 in Version2 comes with 2 major improvements:

  • WI-FI communication: all LA100 UAVs are now coming with a WI-FI communication interface that enables to use OperationCenter software for flight preparation (change of altitude and choice of a flight path among several
    suggested) and systems check (sensors, battery level, autopilot check).
  • OperationCenter on Windows Phone 8: OperationCenter new app for Windows Phone 8 is now available on Windows Phone Store, making a perfect control interface on the field (perfectly suitable for use with Nokia Lumia 1520 6’’ large screen).

The LA100 flies at speeds of 20 to 80 km/h, at a range of up to 300m. It flies in winds of up to 35 km/h and in temperatures from -25°c to 60°c. The wingspan of this drone is 92 cm whilst the length is 45 cm. Mostly made of foam, aluminium and carbon fibre, the LA100 weights around 850 g, including a mounted GoPro camera.

All LA100 drones are now coming in Version2, for which Lehmann Aviation keeps the same price: €990 (roughly 1340 USD). The new upgrade for all LA100 Version1 drones is available upon request and costs 190€ (roughly 260 USD).

For those who would like to prepare the whole flight with bigger range and performance, Lehmann Aviation suggests its LA200 and LA300 drones.
