UAV Octocopter V1000 Drone

Heavy lift multirotor platform

Taking advantage of high efficiency brushless motors and carbon fiber propellers, the large octocopter platform has the capacity for a large sensor or photography payload while maintaining reliability and redundancy.

The V1000 can carry a heavy payload such as a cinema quality DSLR, scanning LIDAR, and radiation sensors. Flight times for this heavy lift platform are variable considering the loads and variety of sensors that can be mounted to its customized frame. The V1000 has the potential to tolerate a motor, propeller or ESC failure and maintain flight and safety of the payload.

Packaged in a high quality, hard shell lockable case allows for peace of mind during transport and in the field work. The V1000 is shipped ready for use out of the case. Batteries, charging docks, monitors and flight transmitters are all stowed neatly and ready to be set to work.

Customize your V1000 with sensors packages that can include air quality sensors, radiation and more. Connect via live satellite link and gather sensor data from anywhere in the world.
