Hello Franz,

All your products seem very interesting and solidly built, mainly Maja!

For the Ninox; is that the space is designed to accommodate a device the size of a Sony A5100 or more for an action camera? Depending on the weight and size of the battery, camera and other electronic accessories, the center of gravity will move. Is there enough space to balance the unit, at the front or the back? Can we increase the capacity of the battery?

Nice! I will have to get me one of those!

I like the folding wing design. What is the maximum camera payload? Will it carry 200g of camera and still maintain it's COG? Also what is the battery used for the 30min flight time at what speed?

Regards JB

Hello, NINOX is developed for cameras up to 200 gr. The Sony α 5100 is alittle bit to heavy, for this type of cameras we have the UAV MAJA.

you have the possibility to change the position of the equipment to maintain the COG. With our battery LiPo 3S/2200 you can fly approx. 30 min. You can also use a second battery or one with higher capacity. The cruise-speed is approx. 50 km/h.

Very Pleasant Franz ... the camera that is embedded in Ninox Sony WX220? I wonder how did the integration with pixhawk is through some trigger cable.

Comment by Franz Bormann on May 12, 2016 at 2:53am


correct, to integrate the Sony WX220 or similar cameras with the Pixhawk you need a trigger cable.

Comment by Guilherme Pessoa on May 12, 2016 at 7:21am

which trigger cable would be ideal for this style wx220 have a similar camera and would like to use in my drone, would have to perform some internal change in wx or so the cable is enough to make the shots. Any circuit to ride this cable? where I can buy.

Thank Franz ... The wx220 not appear on camera compatible relationship with the trigger cable, but is guaranteed to work?
