Every holiday season has its hot tech item, from smartwatches to game consoles and now to folding drones.

Drones can give you the bird’s-eye view that makes any video look engaging and exciting, mostly because that perspective hasn’t been possible until drones came about. One of the biggest problems people have had with drones is that they are typically so difficult to carry around and take on adventures.

Cue the folding drone, first launched by GDU in 2015 and recently copied by DJI and GoPro. This design lets anyone take a drone along in a backpack or small bag. Thus, portability issue- solved! But the question should be asked is does a folding drone answer all the problems with drones today? Well, not quite.

Folding Drone

If you only plan to use a drone for a quick video or two, the DJI Mavic might be a decent choice for the holidays. But if you plan on using the drone for different photography and videography projects, or if you simply enjoy flying a drone, you’ll want to look for something that has a lot more power and the ability to change out gimbals and cameras.

‘GDU Premium Byrd’ is the first and only drone that has a folding design with a high-end 4K camera. It also has the ability to swap out cameras and even carry DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. This is the true “future proofing” ability.

When you buy a GDU Byrd, you only invest in a drone once, and can save your money for buying cameras you want to try. No other consumer drone manufacturer offers this amazing solution that Byrd does.

On the other hand, the Premium Byrd provides for 29 minutes of flight time, with a guaranteed 1000-meter video downlink system. It includes shipped model (no additional downlink technology needed) and also offers a more advanced OFDM system, compared to WiFi transmission. So, with all these facilities, people now a days are more into drones than other cameras.

So, step aside your selfie sticks. Let the hottest new item take your vacation snaps to new heights-literally!
