HexaCopter UAV is a drone featuring six motors and six high-power propellers, an improvement over the standard quadcopter design. The six-axis gyroscope makes it easier to maneuver and better stabilizes the device when capturing aerial photos and videos.

There are two ways to control it- use either the free smartphone app or the 2.4GHz RF controller that comes with the device. Using Merlin's HexaCopter UAV app, which connects to the drone's onboard Wi-Fi network, you can control HexaCopter up to 50 meters. The built-in camera lets you shoot live, real-time videos and save pictures directly to your smartphone. The 2.4GHz radio frequency controller has three speed control options -Slow, Medium, and High- allowing you to fly the way you want under different flying conditions.
