Here’s a new drone video contest that could win you a drone with some seriously high retail value. A contest running now through the end of June, put on by aerial video community AirVuz, could land you with your own free Evolve 2 drone package, which is worth with $3,699.
What is the Evolve 2 drone?
The Evolve 2 drone is a relative newcomer to the drone world, created by XDynamics, which was established back in 2015. It’s headquartered in Hong Kong, with U.S. offices in Irvine, California, plus a few other offices worldwide.
The EVOLVE 2 drone platform is designed for high-level cinematography and is great for drone pilots looking to use their own lenses. The drone comes equipped with an Astra m4/3 camera with a Micro Four Thirds sensor. But you can choose the lens to fit your videography needs, as it supports a wide range of non-proprietary lenses from Olympus to Panasonic. Its excellent for unique shooting situations including high dynamic range (HDR) photography and filming in low light environments.
Other specs to know include:
- Apple ProRes 10 Bit video recording at 4K 120fps.
- A removable gimbal.
- 12MP resolution sensor.
- 4.63μm pixels
For the $3,700 sticker price, you get that Micro 4/3 camera system, interchangeable gimbal, 33 minutes flight time, 11km range, enlarged dual touch screen controller and more.
How do I enter the drone video contest to win a free Evolve 2?
While the video quality is certainly superb, you don’t need an Evolve 2 drone to win this drone video contest.
To enter, simply upload your best drone videos to the AirVuz website before June 30, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. CDT (all videos uploaded to the AirVuz site between 12:01 a.m. GMT on June 1 and 11:59 p.m. on June 30 are eligible to win). From there, a panel consisting of employees and associates of AirVuz and XDynamics will judge the videos and find a winner.
Videos can be filmed on any aerial contraption, whether built by XDynamics or not.
The winner, walking away with a free Evolve 2 drone, will be announced sometime in July.
The AirVuz site is one of the best places to post and store your drone videos. You can post an unlimited number of videos at no cost. And not only is it great to upload videos, but it’s great to browse other videos. AirVuz curates easily-browsable collections base on common groupings like landmarks, cities, people, nature and transportation. It’s great to get creative filming inspiration. And if you’re flying somewhere new, such as taking your drone on vacation, it’s a great source of finding ideas of places to fly your drone.
Upload your videos here so you can enter to win a free Evolve 2.
