Errant weather is no problem either, with the PowerEgg X being able to hand a maximum wind speed resistance of 29-38 kph. 

Alternatively, if you love capturing stormy dramatic vistas, you might want to consider investing in the PowerEgg X Wizard version, which can fly under heavy rain. By using the included waterproof shell and landing gear, the PowerEgg X Wizard can also land on water! This makes it a perfect option for boat owners or water sport enthusiasts.

One of the most exciting aspects of this fresh piece of tech is that it's not just a drone. The PowerEgg X can also be transformed into a lightweight handheld camera with up to 3.5 hours of battery life in this mode. Capable of shooting both stills and video, the PowerEgg X can capture hyper lapses, 120 fps slow motion and can even live stream to multiple platforms.

Another intriguing feature is the PowerEgg X's AI camera mode and intelligent composition functionality. This allows the drone to help users create dynamic and innovative content. The PowerEgg X's integrated facial recognition technology continuously improves its accuracy through deep-learning training, which means that the subject can be tracked precisely when moving. 

You can pick up the PowerEgg X Explorer for just $899 / £725 and the PowerEgg X Wizard for $1,249 /  £977.
