How does optical position work?

Flitt uses optical technology to hold it in place. During flight it is constantly taking pictures of the ground and comparing pixels from one picture to the next. If it detects a change, a sensor sends commands that will hold Flitt in position. The technology is incredible, but be aware that some surface conditions can confuse the sensor and cause drifting:

  • Shiny, reflective floors
  • Water (or any surface that can move)
  • Grass, flowers, and other vegetation blown by wind
  • Very consistent surfaces, like black asphalt, snow, or uniform tile floor
