Fat Shark has made a name for itself producing FPV headphones for drones. Therefore it is not shocking to know that they are heading straight into making quadcopters. It begins with their Fat Shark 101, a “drone training system” that is designed to bring in beginners to the superior areas of drone racing.
The package is made to be a reasonable and straightforward approach to enter into drone racing, merging all you need to begin to conquer the skies against other pilots.
The Fat Shark 101 includes the Shark Drone, a compact quadcopter with a figure clad in the resemblance of a real shark, filled with a caudal fin on the tail and a huge dorsal fin at the top. It isn’t similar to your typical fare from DJI, which comes loaded with Gps unit, IMUs, along with other sensors. Instead, it is added barebones, needing the user to drive manually while losing lots of weight to equip enhanced speed and agility, same as the present crop of racing drones.
Since it is a “drone training system,” it will carry some self-regulating technology, especially altitude hold and level support, both of which can be found when soaring in primary function. Shifting to advanced mode eliminates the altitude hold, as flying in pro mode removes all assistance entirely, leaving you to your skill when piloting the quad. The concept is to get a great feel of flying with the self-regulating assistance in tow, after that, as you get comfy, slowly moving ahead to full manual flights as they do at drone contests.
