Eye in the sky: Draganflyer X8

Mar 20, 2012 3 Comments by

The latest in aerial photography and videography is this Draganfly X8, a unique machine powered by eight motors, each with its own rotor blade! This stable flyer can carry 1.7 pounds of equipment and features 11 onboard sensors and a sophisticated autopilot to self-stabilize during flight. Its foldable carbon-fiber frame makes transport easy. Police departments across the U.S. and Canada are already using the Draganflyer X6, a smaller UAV, in search and rescue operations, training, surveillance and even homicide investigation.
