  • Back at CES 2021, Sony revealed plans to launch a new drone business called Airpeak that would be dedicated to taking its Alpha full-frame mirrorless cameras into the air.
  • The company has fitted the S1 with a “unique, high-performance flight control system” that combines infrared ranging data, direction information, barometric pressure, info from the Inertial Measurement Unit, and onboard cameras to optimize performance for the promise of inflight stability and high maneuverability.
  • This “introductory model” in the Airpeak range will go on sale from September for around US$9,000, and will include two pairs of props, a remote, two batteries and a charger.
