In addition to the frontal main camera, there is a second camera under the belly of the fuselage which serves as an optical flow positioning sensor. You can even toggle between the view of these two cameras. The K-1 PRO features 5Ghz WiFi real-time image transmission.

VISUO K1 PRO remote controller
Visuo packs its K-1 Pro drone with a compact, light in weight, and easy to use remote controller. It uses 4 pieces of AA batteries which are not included in the box. Apart from the usual things (control sticks and buttons), there is a nice status LCD screen in the center of the remote. The tiny display provides real-time telemetry data such as flight distance, altitude, RC signal strength, and battery life. The transmitter claims to provide more than a 1.5Km control range.
