The all new GDU Byrd Premium 2.0 is the drone industry's debut modular flying platform for both professionals and consumers alike. Effectively creating the world's first compact foldable drone device, Global Drone Union, recently rebranded from ProDrone, is swooping into the marketplace trying to fill the gaps that other leading drone manufacturers have left for consumers. No doubt,GDU (Global Drone Union) has cemented it's place among other leading drone manufacturers as the world's first compact foldable drone device on the market– even before the DJI Mavic Pro and GoPro Kharma. And not only that– it's also one of the very first modular design UAV systems to date. Unbothered by developing a competitive in-house camera system, GDU has demonstrated a consistent commitment to specializing and optimizing their research and innovations in drone technology for strictly UAV flying platforms– leaving the camera work to the professionals who know it best.
GDU Byrd Premium 2.0 Key Features
Modular DesignFocusing strictly on flight technology and aerial flight innovation– GDU has outdone itself with its fully customizable, fully upgradable design. As a stand-alone flying platform, the GDU Byrd Premium 2.0 excels at providing aerial professionals with in-flight performance; which leaves the rest of the build to whatever the next latest and greatest development there is with camera technology. Since the development of drones has increasingly hinged around camera capability and innovation, GDU allows users to opt into a variety of camera payloads and setups simply at the switch of a gimbal to avoid the redundancy of replacing the aircraft the next time you want to upgrade. One moment you could be flying with a stunning 4K capable gimbal and camera and the next you could be running an infrared setup for search and rescue or a X10 optical zoom for bridge inspection. GDU even supports the capacity for a select line of DSLR/mirrorless and compact cameras.
Rugged. Durable. Exceptional Build QualityMade from military-grade, wear-resistant components, the GDU Byrd drone is built to sustain heavy impact, use, and function in all kinds of inclement weather conditions. Tested for heat, cold, rain, stress, and wind resistance– the GDU Byrd was built to be exceptionally reliable, making it one of the safest options for aerial drone technology on the market.
GDU Byrd Drone DeliveryThat’s right– the GDU Byrd Premium 2.0 supports GDU’s unique Delivery Box that is capable of dropping small items and tools within the full flight range of the drone unit. Attaching to the Byrd via a locking mechanism which sits near the gimbal, the GDU’s Delivery Box can be used during flight to drop essential items off from a distance in the interest of time efficiency or in event of an emergency. From medical supplies, beacons, small tools, documentation, or even small products, the GDU Delivery box is a versatile addition to the GDU’s already expansive drone repertoire.
Professional DesignDominating the scene as the world’s first folding drone design, the GDU Byrd 2.0 is at the crux of power-meets-portability. Built with orthogonal frequency division multiplexing video transmission technology, the GDU Byrd 2.0 is specifically enhanced for transmission distance and is far less susceptible to interference than traditional WiFi transmission or other methods of video transmission technology. With an approximate 30 minute long, single battery flight capacity, and a transmission distance of over 2000m, the Byrd is neck and neck as one of the longest and furthest flying drone platforms ever built.
