BLADE Glimpse overview

  • 1Description

Featuring distinctive inverted rotors, the Glimpse FPV Quadcopter from BLADE is a nano-scale aerial video and photo platform that weighs just 1.8 ounces. It incorporates a 720p flight camera that records to an included 8GB microSD card and can also take 1.0 MP still photos. To provide the FPV experience, a 5.8 GHz video downlink allows you to view a 480p feed from the camera on a mobile device. This is the "BNF" (Bind-n-Fly) version of the Glimpse, meaning a transmitter (radio controller) is not included. It works with 4-channel+ Spektrum DSMX transmitters.

Integrated 720p Camera
The built-in camera shoots 720p HD video, can take 1.0 megapixel photos and store them on the included 8GB microSD card. Access is also available via the micro USB port. The adjustable camera lens pivots for a variety of vantage points
First-Person View (FPV)
The Glimpse drone allows you to stream live 480p video via 5.8 GHz Wi-Fi downlink - supporting a range of up to 80' line-of-sight. A bracket is included allowing you to attach a mobile device up to the size of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (5.7" display) to the transmitter

Note: An iOS or Android mobile device with 5.8 GHz Wi-Fi is required
SAFE Technology
The Glimpse drone features Blade's SAFE (Sensor Assisted Flight Envelope) technology, an electronic flight envelope protection system that designed to make it easy for beginners just learning to fly. Its intuitive capabilities allow the drone to battle windy conditions so that performance is consistently smooth. Pitch and roll limits are locked to help ensure flight stability is maintained at all times. Futhermore, electronic self-leveling brings the drone into a hover attitude the instant you release the sticks for stable image and video capture
Durable Design
A flexible airframe and lightweight construction allow you to become a drone pilot even if you bump into a few obstacles along the way. The configuration means the rotors are clear from camera view and the enclosure offers extra protection
Battery Included
A 500mAh flight battery is included, and provides typically around 6 to 8 minutes flight time

Additional Features

Fully assembled, no building necessary
High-contrast trim scheme helps maintain orientation
Replacement rotor blades included to keep you flying

    BLADE Glimpse reviews

    Glimpse FPV Quadcopter (BNF) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great first quad I have flown larger and more expensive quads, but glimpse is great for first time quad flyers. If you have your own radio, just follow the bind and fly instructions and you'll be connected in no time. Connecting to the camera is easy with the Glimpse app. This is really for indoor use only, but if you do go outdoors with it, just make sure there is little to no wind. You'll get about five minutes of flight time with the batteries, not great so make sure and order extras. The quad is extremely durable and should be able to withstand most crashes experienced by new pilots. Not too expensive for a fun toy you can use around the house.
