Personal drone enthusiasts — specifically, those who like flying quadcopters — have a new way to make the experience a lot more social. Meet the Flytrex Live: a ‘black box’-style flight recorder that connects to the Internet in real-time to unlock a burgeoning online community of drone hobbyists who can follow each other’s flight paths, take part in challenges and, in the future, fly in groups. Adding a real-time Internet connection — — which is powered by 2G GPRS via a dedicated microSIM slot — enables a number of interesting features. The most obvious is the ability to follow flight paths in real-time via Google maps integration on your Flytrex personal “Flight Channel”. In addition, that flight telemetry data can be shared with other pilots, or pushed to Facebook. Finally, the Flytrex Live can act like a traditional ‘black box’, should you lose track of your drone or it crashes unexpectedly.
