Here’s a sample video from the Newbeedrone Invisi360, an “invisible” 360 camera FPV drone for Insta360 One R (reviewed here). I’ve been testing the Newbeedrone Invisi360 and here are my first impressions.
The Newbeedrone Invisi360 is the newest “invisible” 360 camera drone. When used with the Insta360 One R, this FPV quad is invisible to the camera. That means you can point the video anywhere without the drone being visible in the shot (except for reflections and shadows).
There have been several other invisible 360 camera drones, but the Invisi360 has several unique features, such as having a frame that puts the lens in the exact middle of the quad, and having two separate batteries for better balance and weight distribution.
As with other FPV drones, the Invisi360 is manual and has no GPS stabilization. This makes it much more difficult to fly but in my opinion, makes its flight appear much more natural and graceful.
I’ve been testing the Invisi360 over the past couple of days as a cinewhoop for real estate flythroughs. I’ve been impressed with the attention to detail in the design, and as you can see from the sample video, it can fly smoothly. However, it does have a few significant flaws that could be dealbreakers to some people (I’m trying to see if there are workarounds). Stay tuned for my full review. Meanwhile, what do you think of using 360 cameras for FPV flythrough videos? If you have questions about it, please let me know in the comments and I will answer them.
