3DR lifts off with powerful redesigned copters

3689572837?profile=originalWe are pleased to introduce our updated Quad, Y6, X8. Each of our new copters is built to support a Tarot brushless gimbal and GoPro HERO camera, providing an ideal platform for stable, jello-free imagery. These robust and flexible copters can take off and land anywhere.

Our new copters have been redesigned from the ground up to offer increased lifting power, enhanced flight time and greater responsiveness. Each of our aircrafts features Pixhawk, our most advanced autopilot system yet., as well as precise GPS navigation, built-in advanced processor and sensor technology from ST Microelectronics® and a NuttX real-time operating system. The result is incredible performance, flexibility, and reliability for autonomous flight.

All of our ready-to-fly copters arrive fully configured. Just unfold the arms and legs, attach the propellers, charge your battery, and you're ready to fly.

Open and flexible, our copters provide the ideal platform for simple enjoyment or innovative applications. Happy flying!

  • 2014 kits are out on the 3dr site:


  • Any updates on the release date for the 2014 X4 frame as a DIY kit? I would be interested. It looks much cooler than the current 2013 Quad D frame that are available as a DIY kit.

    Also how difficult would it be to convert the DIY X4 kit into an X8 in the future? there only seems to be additional motor mounts in the X8 compared to the X4.

  • Still no news re: 2014 kits. Sue, I messaged you, but no reply...?

  • I finally ordered the 2014 X8 RTF with every extra. Plan on adapting my raspberry pi to the unit. Hope I made a good decision.

  • Any dates for the Y6 version 2014 Kit release? Shouldn't be already for sale last week?

    New press release just posted stating they are shipping Iris.

  • Rocklandusa- The 3DR Kits are nice and have continued to improve. We carry the 3DR line at www.aeroworksproductions.com

    I have not yet had the chance to test the new 2014 line as pretty much all of the Multirotors have been on Backorder. As soon as we get some in we'll do a video and review of them.
  • Adam, you are one of my favs on YouTube and I greatly respect your opinions. Just confirm for me that you think the 3DR units are solid. I am ready to order the 2014 model with all extras. It basically has all the items I want including the Tarot gimbal and Hero 3+. Seems like the Pixhawk is solid. 

  • wonder why the IRIS has a higher payload capacity than the quad? Could this be a mistake? 

  • @Rocklandusa-  Thanks for watching the videos.  More videos and products coming to our website soon.  You are correct if you add all the extras it is a RTF but without there are not.
