The PowerVision Robot Corporation has launched a new drone. This one sets itself apart with what its maker describes as weatherproof attachments, one of which even allows the PowerEgg X to land on water. It is also rated for 4K/60 frames per second (fps) recording in flight.

Given that outdoor pursuits may once soon be a thing again, drone-piloting may see a resurgence in popularity as a pastime. On the other hand, these consumer-level UAVs, as the company PowerVision points out, often need extremely ideal conditions to fly safely. This company claims that its own latest product is designed to solve this problem.

This is because the PowerEgg X is the first drone to be compatible with accessories that make it weatherproof. They consist of a case, as well as a landing float. This last is particularly interesting as PowerVision asserts that it enables it to land on and take off from bodies of water, like a seaplane. It can also resist winds with speeds of 29 to 38 knots.

In terms of its more conventional UAV functions, it is rated for 4K/60 fps recording and up to 30 minutes of battery life. The PowerEgg X is available from retailers such as B&H Photo Video, Best Buy, Amazon and also PowerVision's own store. It has a recommended price of US$899, or $1249 for a bundle with its weather-proof kit.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
