Engineered for Safety
The Draganflyer X6 helicopter is designed with safe operation in mind. The size, rotor layout, data link, flight recorder, software configurations, navigation lights, and real time telemetry all have safety features incorporated. These features enable you to fly with confidence knowing that you are in control of a stable aircraft capable of providing you with great utility and enjoyment.
Small Size & Low Weight
The Draganflyer X6 helicopter is smaller and lighter than conventional helicopters with comparable performance. In the event of a collision there is less kinetic energy in the helicopter, which decreases the damage done to both the helicopter and the object that it collides with.
On-Board Stabilization Software
On-board software continuously stabilizes the flight of the Draganflyer X6 helicopter. This allows the pilot to direct the helicopter rather than manually keeping it stable. The Draganflyer X6 helicopter also keeps itself within pre-programmed angular flight limits to ensure it remains stable.
High Brightness Navigation Lights
High power LED navigation lights using standard aircraft marker colors make the Draganflyer X6 helicopter easily seen in the air. This assists other craft in collision avoidance. The navigation lights also make determining the orientation of the Draganflyer X6 easier when it is far away, in direct sunlight, or in the dark.
Low Battery Indicator
The Draganflyer X6 helicopter battery and handheld controller battery level are monitored in real-time and displayed on the controller screen. An audible warning sounds and a visual alert pops up when the battery becomes dangerously low. If the helicopter continues to be flown, an auto landing will occur before the battery completely discharges.
If for any reason the radio link is lost, the Draganflyer X6 helicopter will auto-descend and land automatically.
Maximum Operating Ceiling
The Draganflyer X6 helicopter can be programmed to restrict flight below a configurable maximum altitude.
Flight Recorder / Black Box
The Flight Data Recorders save all sensor information and data from the flight to a removable micro SD card. This flight data can be used for post flight analysis or to determine the cause of abnormal flight characteristics before it becomes an issue. This log also records GPS coordinates that can be used for geo reference images after the flight.
Data and control information for the helicopter are sent at 2.4GHz with automatic channel selection to eliminate frequency conflicts. This ensures a reliable and secure connection. Streaming video is sent at 5.8GHz, eliminating the possibility of interference with the data transmission.
