3DR X8 RTF heavy lift multirotor is a powerful, redundant and versatile solution for aerial photography and autonomous flight applications. This new version of the 3DR X8 has been completely redesigned from the ground up, featuring increased lifting power, improved flight time and greater responsiveness, thanks to its higher voltage 4S batteries.
This all new X8 now features Pixhawk, 3DR's most advanced autopilot system to date. Combined with precise GPS navigation, a built-in advanced processor and sensor technology from ST Microelectronics® and a NuttX real-time operating system, this autopilot delivers incredible performance and reliability.
X8 features plug-and-play gimbal compatibliity with swept back front arms and stability in high winds, making this updated version an ideal aerial vehicle for capturing stable, jello-free video and images. This robust, easy-to-fly copter can take off and land anywhere.
The new design is packed with features, including a fixed FPV camera mounting point, and a built-in 12V regulator to power FPV equipment and a gimbal. It also offers more room for accessories (such as FPV gear, OSD, sonar sensors, telemetry radios. and other devices). Fourteen M3 bolt-on mounting points make it easier than ever to mount sensors, cameras, and other devices.
3DR X8 arrives ready to fly. Simply unfold its arms and legs, attach propellers, charge the battery and take off!
