Fly in Full Screen Immersion with Potensic Atom

In the ever-evolving world of drone technology, a new era began in 2021, introducing drone enthusiasts to an innovative way to experience flight: the DroneMask. This groundbreaking FPV goggle featuring an unique unibody lens has transformed the way mini drone pilots navigate the skies, offering an immersive flight experience that is unparalleled, requiring nothing else than the pilots smartphone and flight app. With the release of the Potensic Atom in September 2023, the budget-friendly drone market has welcomed a formidable new competitor, boasting features previously exclusive to market leaders like DJI and Autel.

The Evolution of Mini Drones

The mini drone market, traditionally dominated by giants such as Autel and DJI, has seen fierce competition with models like the DJI Mini 3 Pro, DJI Mini 2 SE, and Autel Robotics EVO Nano Plus leading the charge. These drones, known for their lightweight design and sophisticated features, have set a high standard in the sub 250g category. The introduction of the DroneMask 2 has added a new dimension to flying these mini marvels, enhancing the pilot's experience by providing a truly immersive flight perspective.

Why the Focus on 250 Grams?

The magic number in most drone regulations around the world is 250 grams. Drones weighing under this threshold are exempt from certain Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations and paperwork, making them ideal for hobbyists and beginners alike. This weight category not only simplifies the process of taking to the skies but also opens the world of drone flying to a wider audience.

Introducing the Potensic Atom

The Potensic Atom has quickly become a cherished UAV in the hobby drone community. Weighing in under 250 grams, it boasts a 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal stabilization. The Atom's capabilities have positioned it as a game-changer in the budget and beginner drone market, proving that Potensic can deliver high-quality aerial photography and smooth, stable flight in a compact, lightweight design.

What Sets DroneMask Apart?

DroneMask distinguishes itself from traditional VR headsets with its groundbreaking technology that eliminates the need for a split screen. It requires no third-party apps to be used and enhances visual clarity with a unibody lens system that offers four times the resolution of split-screen VR headsets, significantly reducing eye strain. The seamless interaction with the flight app during operation fosters a more intuitive and engaging flying experience. Pilots can now operate virtually any popular camera drone in immersive First-Person View (FPV) with DroneMask.

To experience the full potential of the Potensic Atom in immersive First-Person View (FPV), all that's required is a longer OTG cable to connect your smartphone to the DroneMask 2. The DroneMask comes equipped with all necessary cables and adapters (1 USB-C to USB-C cable, 1 USB-C to Lightning cable, and 1 microUSB to USB-C adapter) to ensure a seamless connection. Should any issues arise with these cables, assistance is readily available to ensure every pilot can enjoy an unparalleled flight experience.
