VR Tiger Shark X8 RTF + VR Gimbal fly test doing by Emile last week

This is the final configuration of VR Tiger Shark X8  RTF  :

The drone is designed and produced in our lab . The material use in Tiger Shark are Carbon Fiber and ergal . The plastic cover and finiture make by 3D printing  SLS technology.


VR Brain is the Autopilot board used in Tiger Shark.

VR Gimbal is the Brushless gimbal controller in Easy Shot Gimbal .


Between Tiger Shark and Easy shot we put a special anti vibration system that cut vibration from drone frame to gimbal. After a lot of work for setup it work very well :)


The frame configuration is X8 coaxial configuration we choose to use this configuration because is possible continue to fly also without two propeller if the payload is not so heavy .


The Payload for camera is near 1 kg . With a 10 Amp 4S battery we are near 15 min of fight.


This is a last fly test doing by Emile with Tiger Shark and Easy Shot Gimbal.

The fly test is doing with last revision of APM Copter available on our repository :


This is the revision of code use on VR Gimbal 



The Fly of drone is very smoth and automatic functionality as loiter are solid as rock.

Looks nice, but looks heavy X8.

What is the total weight of the Tiger Shark with battery ?

I will ask the same question that I made at the black ops topic and never got answered, 

Do you already have a price for it? And for black ops?

Jiro With 10Ah 4S battery is 3.8Kg

Need to work on some details to get it to 3.5.

@Euan, I know but the issues were with the radio had some wierd spikes on pitch (up to 2000) wich gave the gimbal very bad jitter.

This was a test and was not meant for publishing :)
