We are proud to announce the release of our new compact, economical Draganflyer X4-P multi-rotor VTOL UAV. TheÂ Draganflyer X4-PÂ is the newest model in our series of ingenious flying machines. Devised for commercial/industrial aerial videography and photography, the X4-P is safe, stable, and the all-around best solution for steady, low-altitude photos and video. Based on the design of our popular X8, the X4-P features improved stability, our patented folding airframe for portability, improved camera mount vibration isolation, and longer flight time.
TheÂ Draganflyer X4-PÂ is very lightweight and portable. It uses our unique patented folding carbon fiber airframe to fit inside a military-grade case no larger than a suitcase. Transport is a breeze as it can easily fit into the trunk or back seat of a car. This gives the X4-P â€œall-in-one-boxâ€ system the flexibility to go anywhere at any time.
The Draganflyer X4-P integrates safety and durability together with high quality carbon fiber parts, a state-of-the-art folding airframe design, and a sophisticated computerized flight stabilization system. The X4-P features flight batteries with integrated protection circuits that oversee the battery condition and status along with an easy to use battery life indicator, an â€œauto-landingâ€ feature if the radio link to the helicopter is lost, and an onboard flight data recorder which captures all flight information on a removable memory card.
Our new camera mounting system offers improved camera vibration isolation. We engineered the camera mount to keep the camera completely isolated from the helicopter. Along with an active tilt feature to keep the camera level in forward and backward flight, this combination creates smooth and vibration-free pictures and video.
The X4-P offers all of the standard features of our previousÂ Draganflyer systems. The advanced on-board flight computer system that incorporates our SteadyFlight software processes inputs from eleven individual sensors. These sensors (including a barometric pressure sensor, three accelerometers, three gyroscopes, three magnetometers, and a GPS receiver) compute hundreds of calculations per second, giving optimum flight stability and handling while maintaining simple, easy-to-control functionality.
This Draganfly platform is safer than ever and more than capable of meeting your aerial photography needs for years to come.
