The X1 utilizes the award-winning and highly recognizable foldable enclosure design of Hover Camera Passport, recipient of the Red Dot 2017 Best of the Best Award. The enclosure design allows the device to be flown directly out of the user's hand and at close distances to people.

Five classic automatic flight paths and more advanced user-customizable flight paths can be selected with an on-device button. Users only need to select their flight mode and press a button to take flight and start recording. The X1's cinematic flight paths support a variety of configurations, and its robust follow mode, including front and back follow at up to 20km/h, makes it a perfect companion for active users.

The X1 also features a mechanical gimbal combined with electronic image stabilization (EIS) and horizon levelling to capture smooth and stable videos. It boasts wind resistance of up to level-4 winds, and it supports 2.7K video and video HDR. Each 11-minute battery is sufficient for up to 20 intelligent flights, and the product comes with two batteries and a charging hub. The Hover Camera X1 app allows users to configure flight path parameters like distance, duration, and HDR. Users can also download and share their photos and videos.

"Our vision has always been to utilize cutting-edge technology to build a companion for all your adventures: a product that is simple enough for everybody to use while creating great-looking content. I'm incredibly proud of what we've achieved with the X1 and I think it's going to bring a lot of joy to people's lives. We want to make flying fun again!" said MQ Wang, CEO of Zero Zero.
