Handheld Flight Controller
Simple to Use
The Draganflyer X6 Handheld Controller is custom designed to be easy to use, with no unnecessary buttons. Flight is controlled using the two main gimbals, GPS hold is controlled with mode and ascent/descent switches, and camera control uses shutter, tilt and zoom controls.
Comfortable to Hold
The Draganflyer X6 Handheld Controller comes with a non-slip rubber grip, and features a tough & rugged design.
Displays Real-Time Telemetry
Real-time data is displayed on-screen while the helicopter is in flight. Displayed data includes X6 helicopter battery voltage, controller battery voltage, GPS position, the number of satellites locked onto, helicopter speed & orientation.
Detailed Warning Screens
Along with real time flight data the hand held controller provides visual and audible warnings in the event of critical or unexpected changes onboard the Draganflyer X6. Warnings and alerts include, low battery voltage, loss of GPS signal and altitude limits.
Touch Screen Display
The 2.8 inch full color OLED touch screen display is bright enough to be viewed in direct sunlight. All settings are accessible using the easy to navigate touch-based menus.
The 2.4GHz two-way data link sends commands to the helicopter and receives telemetry. Because the frequency used is 2.4GHz, it works worldwide. Auto channel selection prevents frequency conflicts, and results in a reliable and secure connection.
Dragan Eye™ Pro Diversity Wireless Video Receiver
An embedded Dragan Eye™ Pro 5.8GHz dual diversity wireless video receiver incorporating two 5.8GHz video receivers is built into the controller. The diversity unit intelligently switches between the two receivers in order to obtain the best signal. Switching decisions are not only based on RSSI (Receiver Signal Strength Indication), but also on VSQA (Video Signal Quality Analysis) which monitors video quality on a frame-by-frame basis. Dual antennas can be positioned to pick up the video signal from multiple angles. Dual outputs are located on the bottom of the handheld controller for connecting video goggles and a recording device.
Use Two Controllers with One Helicopter
The Draganflyer X6 Handheld Controller is able to connect wirelessly to a second controller, and share control of the helicopter. This allows a second user to fly the helicopter while the primary user is able to retain control. Possible uses include having one pilot controlling the X6 helicopter and one videographer or photographer moving the camera and taking pictures, each using their own controller.
Long Battery Life
The Draganflyer Handheld Controller features an internal Lithium Polymer rechargeable battery. This battery is lightweight, high capacity, and able to recharge in 30 minutes.
Video Glasses Plug Directly In
Frame your shot by seeing what the helicopter sees. A real-time video feed from the Draganflyer X6 helicopter provides a bird's eye view. The display screens in the video glasses only occupy a portion of your field of view, allowing you to keep the helicopter in sight while viewing the streaming video. This way a single user can both pilot the helicopter and also operate the onboard still camera or video camera.
