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!

    My lab got a 3DR hexa to fly 25 minutes with a 11,000mAh Maxamps and camera gear.  Hopefully the X8 can beat that.

  • PLEASE revisit your shipping costs! It's ridiculous.
  • Noooo...say it ain't true Sue!

    I think Sue is a bot, she(it) never replies.

  • Manuals? Pfft...Only once you'd run out of educated guesses, total guesses, trial and error, forum spams, witchcraft and blind luck first...:-)

  • Reality is "RTFM Drones"

  • Distributor

    Looks like 3D Robotics are going from "DIY Drones" to "RTF Drones"

  • Will you offer the frames in DIY form? Still the 2013 versions listed.
