Fly Dubai

Get a bird’s-eye view of the city with the new gadgets at Gitex Shopper…

The man/woman/superspy in your life just got lucky, as this weekend is their chance to sample their very own Aerial Drone – a stunning piece of kit at Gitex Shopper, which starts this weekend at Dubai World Trade Centre.

Running from Saturday September 27 to Saturday October 4, the retail event will unveil an array of new products and will give attendees the chance to win a host of special prizes (including no less than eight Honda Accords!) across the week. And tickets are on sale now.

Introduced at the event will be the Phantom 2 Vision +, a robotic flying platform equipped with HD cameras. With the ability to travel up to a kilometre, with a live first person view direct to the pilot’s smart phone (as well as an autopilot mode in case of turbulence), this intelligent consumer drone also has the handy ability to return itself back to its base (the Take Off Point) in case communication with the copter is lost. Which is handy, if your driving is anything like ours.

Gitex boasts an experience zone for people to have a play with these airborne beauties, along with their many other attractions, so if you fancy a play, you know where to go.
