Hexo+ Hands-on

Hiring a film crew to capture your action sport exploits can cost thousands of dollars an hour while trying to take selfies as you barrel full-tilt down the side of a mountain is a great way to wind up in traction. But with the HEXO+ UAV from Squadrone Systems, you won't have to do either. This semi-autonomous aerial camera platform pairs to your phone via Bluetooth and faithfully tracks movement, keeping you (or at least your phone) centered in the shot. I recently took an early production model out for a walk at San Francisco's Fort Funston to see how well the HEXO+ actually performs and wound up starring in my own low-speed action flick.
