The HereLink has two micro HDMI inputs (for dual camera operation) and a mavlink input for bi-directional communication between the control and the drone. HereLink controller packed with hardware buttons, wheels and joysticks that allow full control over drone operations. The addition of a built-in 5.4inch touchscreen gives rise to the potential for any number of soft-buttons and interface design that is literally unlimited. Both the transmitter and controller will be “open” allowing for complete customisation and all communication/video is piped over a highly robust LTE-based link.
