MOTA Unveils Six Drones at CES

Commercial Newcomers & Nano-Sized UAVs for Consumer Fun Soar Into Action

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - January 05, 2016) - CES - MOTA, which introduced the world's smallest, lightest drone in November 2015, today introduced six new drones at CES 2016, ranging from autonomous commercial workhorses to smaller-than-pint sized models that bring the thrill of drone flight to everyone.

CES is one of the world's largest consumer technology events.

"Our new drones span a huge range of flight, from aerial platforms for commercial applications to Lilliputian nano drones for pure fun," said MOTA President Michael Faro. "With today's announcement we're introducing a fleet for almost any airborne task, some with capabilities never before seen in either consumer or commercial drones."

MOTA GIGA™-8000 headlines the line-up for commercial applications. Its optional patent pending DRONE HANDS™ Flight Management System provides autonomous flight and payload handling for mission-critical work in areas such as agriculture, defense, energy, first responder, real estate, security, and more.

The GIGA-8000 also features pre-selected flight patterns, auto-follow, and dual GPS. It can be equipped for pro-level HD streaming videography and it has a high-capacity battery for extended flight.

MOTA GIGA-6000 provides selectable flight patterns, as well as auto follow, HD video streaming, and dual GPS.

MOTA Pro Live™ drones offer video streaming made business-simple. Ready to fly right out of the box, MOTA Pro Live-5000 and Pro Live-4000 feature auto takeoff, auto landing, and selectable flight patterns to capture images at just the right moment. The Pro Live-5000 sports six rotors for unparalleled maneuverability; the other models have four.

MOTA JETJAT™ Nano and MOTA JETJAT Nano-C are miniature renditions of their much larger cousins. Both JETJATs provide exceptionally nimble flight for outsized fun.

Less than an inch in any dimension -- 22 x 22 x 20 mm (.87 x .87 x .79 inch) -- and barely nudging the scales at less than one-half ounce, JETJAT Nano is believed to be the world's smallest, lightest consumer drone.

JETJAT Nano-C, new for CES, adds SD-card video recording, allowing JETJAT jockeys to roam the skies at blazing speeds documenting aerial stunts worthy of Evel Knievel. The Nano-C's dimensions are a modestly larger 32 x 32 x 22 mm (1.26 x 1.26 x .87 in.) and its .6 oz. weight just a tad heavier than the Nano.

MOTA JETJAT Live-W™ is a palm-sized drone that delivers HD video streaming. At a svelte 15 x 15 x 4.5 cm (5.9 x 5.9 x 1.8 in.) and 2.5 oz., it comes with a controller featuring an integrated video display for the some of the most cost-effective video streaming in drone flight.

MOTA JETJAT Nano is available now from leading retailers and from MOTA at an MSRP of $39.99. Availability and prices of the MOTA GIGA-8000, MOTA GIGA-6000, MOTA Pro Live-5000, MOTA Pro Live-4000, MOTA JETJAT Live-W, and MOTA JETJAT Nano-C will be announced in Q1 2016.
