Lily Drone

Lily drone was originally setup as a Kickstarter project. It sold itself as an affordable auto-follow drone and smashed its crowdfunding target a few times over generating millions of dollars and tens of thousands of eager customers. Sadly the project was too ambitious and years later the project failed to deliver and the company went under. This left a lot of unhappy customers having to apply and wait for refunds.

Now Lily is back from the dead under a new company boosting new specs, a fresh new look and foldable body design. Its camera has been upgraded from a 1080p 12 megapixel camera to 4K shooting and 13 megapixel stills and 120fps slow motion at 720p. The new version of Lily has a max speed of 25mph, a flight time of 18 minutes and can be recharged in just an hour.

On top of the new hardware changes it comes bundled with a few new flight features like one touch take off and a refined ‘follow me’ mode. For the hardware and flight features on offer it is very competitively priced. The new Lily drone was launched at a price of £442 ($599) and includes the following –

  • A Lily Camera, Next-Gen 2017 Drone
  • Smart Hover® W/ 4K Camera
  • Charging Cable
  • Extra Propellers
