Halo Drone Pro is pretty well known in the US market. in the USA, too, more and more helicopter pilots are interested in this model.
The camera drone is equipped with a photo sensor that can record up to 4K video at up to 30 frames per second. The recordings make a very good impression. Many videographers are delighted, the quality is comparable to that of DJI.
If you love fast, remote controlled drones, the Halo Drone Pro is ideal as it can reach speeds of up to 80 kilometers per hour!
But what’s the catch? Is there at least one? We give you a quick idea of what to expect and clear up the most important questions in this post.
Technical data and design
Overall, the design is very attractive and gives the impression of quality. It is a foldable drone made of very durable materials.
Here and there, orange accents stand out against the metallic gray. Thus, the drone looks neither boring nor too colorful.
The Halo drone measures approximately 43cm diagonally, which is above average compared to the models we’ve tested elsewhere. Weight approx. 1.4 kg. However, powerful engines do not make the plane too slow. Due to its weight and powerful drive, the quadcopter can withstand strong gusts of wind.
The flight time with a fully charged battery is approximately 22 minutes. Compared to the DJI Mavic Pro 2, this is not much, but the Halo Pro drive system also uses significantly more power as more power is available.
6000 mAh is already a house number, this energy must go somewhere, so you can probably imagine that a real power plant with incredibly high acceleration and a significant maximum speed (80 km / h) awaits you here.
Of course the FPV image is transmitted, the maximum video range is about 800 meters, until then you will definitely have a low latency of less than 200ms.
The controller itself has a transmission range of up to about 1000 meters, but then you probably won’t have a live FPV image without a lot of latency. Please note that certain laws apply in the USA and therefore the drone can only fly within line of sight.
Built-in photo sensor – Sony IMX 377. It has a maximum photo resolution of 12 megapixels and has distortion correction.
The following resolutions are available for video recording:
- 3840 × 2160 (4K) @ 30fps
- 2560 × 1440 (1440p) 60fps
- 1920 × 1080 (Full HD) 120fps
- 1280 × 720 (HD) 240fps
Suitable for beginners?
While the numbers are quite remarkable and the characteristics of the drone make you doubt whether beginners should dare to approach them, the system is easy to fly with. An extensive sensor system ensures stable flight.
The GPS and gyro system is integrated, among other things, as well as the altitude barometer, so the Halo Pro drone nails in the air as soon as you release the control stick.
The Follow-Me and Return To Home modes are very complex. In addition, Halo Pro can be launched and landed at the touch of a button, all fully automatic, just like you are used to other drone models from DJI or Parrot.
Pros and cons
- 4K Action Camera
- 4K video recording at 30 fps
- Accurate GPS tracking
- Sophisticated gyroscopic system and altitude barometer
- Ideal for beginners and experienced drone pilots
- Many different flight modes
- State-of-the-art 3-axis harness, adjustable up to 2000 per second
- It is a foldable drone similar to the Mavic Pro.
- Stunning top speed up to 80 kilometers per hour.
This drone is really easy to fly and fly, so it is a good starting point for getting started with a drone.
But even the advanced will enjoy this plane because the camera’s recording quality and different flight modes leave a lot of freedom of action.
The quality of the Halo Pro is practically close to that of DJI, so we can give a clear recommendation for buying the model.
