Review and Specs of the SMD Mirage by Smart Drone

Product Description

UPDATE (Oct 23, 2016)  -  Space City Drones has decided to stop selling and supporting the Smart Drone products until further notice. We are waiting customer support issues to be resolved prior to selling any more of their drones. 

With the ever increasing demand for Professional drones, manufacturers from various countries are pushing the boundaries in terms of technology. Availability of more powerful and advanced drones is now possible even to an average consumer. Lightweight materials are used in the construction of these drones which offer easy mobility in flight and tackle even the toughest of environmental conditions. The views from above are enticing to our eyes and with the latest advancements in sensor technology, images and videos ooze out with vivid colors, sharpness and details. With safety in mind, the Mirage uses Smart Ultrasonic sensor technology that detects obstacles in front of the drone and provides information to the main controller to veer away from it. This unique feature helps to enable a safer flight and contributes to the overall stability of the drone in tight spaces. The built-in high capacity battery offers competitive flight times and with the optional high voltage battery, you can keep it flying for even longer durations as required. Mirage steps in as the first camera to have 5x Optical zoom capability. This is helpful for the armed forces or the police to zoom in on targets or to get key information such as numbers from a license plate. The 3-axis gimbal keeps it rock steady amidst challenging weather conditions and provides a stable footage that is devoid of any vibrations and camera shakes. Control your Mirage drone with its unique radio controller that is capable of controlling the flight movements up to 1000 meters. The precise control sticks are easy to use and help you make minor adjustments to the camera as well as the flight path of the drone itself. The user friendly mobile application and the waypoint navigation are further options to control the Mirage with unprecedented access.


Obstacles are the major danger to high flying drones. But the Mirage tackles these with ease by using two Smart Ultrasonic sensors mounted on the front of the drone. They are placed on either sides of the drone just below the front propellers. This unique placement helps the drone to fly without crashing into obstacles that might otherwise pose an imminent danger to the equipment. If an object or a person is detected on its flight path, the Mirage quickly stops and changes directions to avoid a major crash.  This feature is unique to the Mirage and comes in handy while flying in tight spaces.


The Mirage is powered by a 14.8 volt 6750mAh Lithium Polymer battery. With smarter technology to control the use of battery power, the Mirage can easily stay high up in the skies for 27 minutes on a single charge. The optional 10,000mAh battery allows for an even greater flying time of more than 30 minutes on a single charge.


The Mirage features a Sony EXMOR 1/2.3” CMOS sensor, which is capable of capturing gorgeous aerial footage at 1440p @ 30 fps. Full HD 1080p video recording is available at 60 fps and 30 fps. If the situation requires high speed video recording, then the Mirage steps in with 720p HD video recording at 120p and 60p. Still photography with the Mirage drone is possible with the utilization of the world’s first 5X Optical Zoom camera that is capable of producing 16 Megapixels of beautiful aerial photographs. With the fixed ISO of 200, colors are rich and vibrant with lots of details in crisp sharpness. The high resolution jpeg files can be quickly recorded onto a Micro SD card and the Mirage supports a maximum of 64 GB in storage space with regards to the Micro SD card that is being used for recording by the user.


You can enjoy professional grade aerial footage with the Ultra-precision 3-axis gimbal system in the Mirage. Any kind of camera shake or disturbances caused by wind are avoided with ease and the footage remains crisp and detailed with no loss of quality. The GoPro camera is compatible with this gimbal system and through that, you are also going to be enjoying an unrestricted 300° view of our beautiful world below.


Control the Mirage easily with the dedicated remote controller unit that was specifically designed for ease of use. The control sticks can be used for precise movements while the drone is in flight. The dials let you tilt the camera according to the situational requirements for an unprecedented view around and below. The built-in rechargeable battery keeps the radio controller functioning for longer periods of time. The clamp can also hold your mobile device with the mobile application and the same controller can also house in a range extender for up to 1000 m. With the dedicated buttons for photography and videography, capturing the required footage has never been so much easy. In a single click, you can also let the Mirage fly back to you and land safely in the same place where it started the journey from.


This powerful mobile application is compatible with both iOS and Android powered Smart devices. It gives you an array of vital information such as altitude, height, speed, battery levels, flight time and many more.


Create your own flight path using the WayPoint Navigation system of the Mirage. You can create a complex flight pattern or choreograph an entire flight path that is unique to your style and enjoy the view as the Mirage speeds through the course. Various other parameters such as separate altitude, direction and hold time on check points as and when required.


Armed personnel of the Police force in any nation face an ever increasing demand in handling complex situations in crowd control, rescue or social assistance. Even the good hearts who are involved in special rescue forces such as earthquake relief, flood-fighting emergency rescues, mountain and fire rescue teams can be benefitted further with the use of the Mirage drones that are unique with their 5X Optical Zoom and collision avoidance capabilities. The assessment of any situation is as important before stepping in to face the situation and the Mirage makes a versatile tool to aid in this factor. They can easily be flown to high altitudes that can give a clear picture of any hidden threats around the area or danger that might be waiting to happen in case of rescue operations. The teams can then co-ordinate accordingly for a successful relief operation. In low light or low visibility situations, an infrared conveyer can be used in the Mirage that shows an improvised view of situations that are otherwise impossible to be seen with our own eyes. This comes in handy when used in tall buildings or in complicated terrain and environmental situations.
