Meet the Helicopter Cam
This impressive amalgamation of aluminum, carbon fiber, and steel is your eyes and ears during behind-the-scenes tours of GE facilities.
RELATIVE WING SPAN
Helicopter Cam has a wingspan of 6 feet, 2 inches. That’s 2 feet, 5 inches less than Michael Jordan’s arm span. And 5 feet, 9 inches less than the wingspan of a wandering albatross.
The eye of the helicopter cam is a compact DSLR, remotely controlled with 360 degrees of fluid motion. Video is captured at 1080p at 24 frames per second so you have a seamless view of how GE continues to innovate the world around us.
REACHING NEW HEIGHTS
Helicopter Cam can hover as high as 12,000 feet above ground and moves at max speeds of 60mph, more than twice as fast as the world’s fastest man.
