Zoopa, a snakebyte® group brand specialising in drones and RC vehicles, announced today the shipping of the Phoenix HD, a new high-performance drone engineered in Germany and now shipping worldwide.

Featuring a truly impressive specification, the Phoenix HD has been designed to offer enthusiasts a rich feature set and the latest camera stabilisation technology, previously unheard of for a drone at this price point and setting a new standard for value.

The Phoenix HD features integrated 2-axis camera stabilization (gimbal) technology, capable of capturing silky-smooth images and HD video, delivering rich, vibrant truly professional videography even under difficult flying conditions. The Phoenix HD proves ideal for seasoned enthusiasts and those new to drone ownership, including features such as ‘auto-land’ and ‘auto take off’ which take the difficulty and stress out of complex manoeuvres while retaining all the fun of flight for the user. At a touch of a button, the Phoenix HD will hover in a fixed position (great for capturing that perfect shot) and even return to its original take off position when ordered!

In addition, the Phoenix HD allows users to link their drone directly to their iOS or Androidsmartphone, and view their photography in real time, sending images direct to their smartphone thanks to on board Wi-Fi video technology.

“As drone ownership continues to grow, more and more people are embracing this hobby and discovering the fun of flight. The cost of drone ownership continues to remain expensive where quality and features are important to the consumer, and Zoopa is determined to disrupt the sector through German engineered product at a price point which sets it apart from the competition,” said Nick Repenning, CEO for snakebyte USA. “Ideal for all levels of skill and ability, the Phoenix HD pushes the envelope of performance and value, and we believe consumers will love the features and value we offer.”

The Phoenix HD retails for an MSRP of $179.99 and is available now.
