ScharkSpark SS41 Drone – Review

ScharkSpark SS41 Drone – the Beetle Drone

The ScharkSpark SS41 Beetle drone dual camera drone has 2 cameras, a 1080P

FPV HD camera and a 720P optical flow positioning camera, it is an app remote controlled and RC quadcopter with lost control protection functionality.

The SS41 Beetle drone from ScharkSpark is a very neat looking camera quadcopter with an excellent app controller.

Dual cameras and user-friendly, efficient orientation
sensors make the SharkSpark SS41 a great drone for beginners and for hobbyist aerial photographers alike.

Gesture controlled photo and video functions are additional useful features and also
excellent fun!

A Mid-Sized Camera Drone with Great Flight Controls

For a mid-sized camera drone, the good looking and stylish ScharkSpark SS41 Beetle drone is very conveniently sized. At 10.8” wide, 2.4” high and 11.4” in length, the SS41 does not exactly fit in your hand but is a small enough drone to pack away in a bag and at 117g in weight, this camera drone is easy enough to travel with.

Aerial photographers will find the dual cameras an attractive feature – one front-facing 1080p video camera and one downward facing 720p video camera feed video and images back to the controller app to be stored on the smartphone.

For posed aerial photography and selfies the SharkSpark SS41 camera drone has some great
gesture recognition controls.

An “optical flow positioning” function utilizes the drone’s sensors to fly and hover steadily; the anti-shake lens and integral lens filter functions help to more easily capture great shots in by minimizing the effects of turbulence and lighting conditions.

Quality video images in first person view (FPV) navigation via the app ensure an enjoyable piloting experience.

Three speed modes are great for pilots to gradually improve their flying skills and also can be used with battery power preservation in mind.

The automatic return to home function provides additional peace of mind for those situations if the SS41
drone loses signal.

Dual cameras: Adjustable 1080p front facing camera, 720p downward facing camera
