We bet most of you never knew Kodak has a drone under its portfolio too. Well, they sure do. The Kodak Riot 250R Pro Sport Drone is the said drone, sold through Thrust-UAV, a drone manufacturer that’s also an authorized Kodak brand licensee and a subsidiary of PCS Edventures!, a company that deals in K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs. Kodak Riot 250R Pro Sport Drone is, as the product name implies, a sport drone.
Kodak said it was inspired by professional pilots and boasts some really serious features. For starter, it is a FPV (first-person view) drone in which you can fly it wearing a FPV goggles. This means, you will be treated to real-time video feedback as fed to you by the onboard FPV camera. In case you are still clueless on what the Kodak Riot 250R Pro Sport Drone is, it is basically a racing drone. Not so much of an imaging drone, if that’s what you are thinking.
Other notables include 49 programmable LED lights, a modular design with an impact resistant polycarbonate skirt, carbon fiber baseplates and arms, reinforced protective undercarriage, finely tuned CG across all three axes, F4 modular integrated flight system and OSD (on-screen display), 4S lithium polymer battery, super strength battery strap, preconfigured Taranis radio gear (includes FrSky Taranis Qx7 transmitter), and full-range FrSky XSR 2.4 GHz telemetry receiver, sport RX/TX antenna.
Though Kodak Riot 250R Pro Sport Drone is read-to-fly (RTF) out of the box, it does not include FPV headset. Kodak Riot 250R Pro Sport Drone’s availability was officially announced last November (2018). If you are keen, you can pick up the starter kit off Thrust-UAV web store for $579.99.
