Description

The Aperture is a new professional 800mm wheelbase hexacopter drone designed for aerial photography. It features all that you want in a large camera drone like excellent stability, heavy lift capabilities, long-endurance, retractable landing arms allowing it to fly in most weather conditions.

The retractable landing arms are an excellent feature for an aerial photography drone as when the legs are retracted they are out of the way of all aerial shots. Just add a 3 axis camera gimbal and camera to shoot all the videos from this super stable drone with a maximum payload of 1.5kg. Power is supplied by six big 4114-400KV motors giving not only extra stability but huge load carrying ability. The large capacity battery tray allows up to 16000mAh 6S Lipoly batteries for longer flight times.

The Aperture comes complete with a Quanum i8 2.4GHz AFDS Radio Control System for interference free flying. The i8 has a rotary dial for easy mode changes and dials for direct control of camera gimbals (not supplied). The Aperture incorporates exciting features such as Stabilized Mode, Altitude Hold, Position Hold mode, Point of Interest Function and Return to Land. These functions make it the perfect, super stable platform for aerial photography for capturing breath taking video footage.

This easy to fly drone is a breeze to setup and fly, making the Aperture the aerial photography drone of choice.

This system has great potential but the quality of the components are very poor - get what you pay for basically. The wires from the ESCs to the motors were barely soldered on and actually detached and has caused it to crash twice. It has survived both crashes reasonably well with only moderate repairs required and it does still fly. If you buy one I would recommend to open up each arm and re-solder the ESC wires before you do anything! Overall you do get a lot for your money but I wouldn't go hanging anything too expensive under it until you are confident in its ability. One of my landing gear legs never retracted from day one but they both broke on the first crash so I built my own landing gear after that anyway.

I build and fly professional UAVs. The Apeture is a ready to fly solution for a large heavy lift Hexacopter. Simple to use, AUTOMATIC GPS -No gps calibration before flight! Allow the unit to aquire signal. then fly. A Newbie could fly this. I own other mutirotors costing $3,00 to $11,oo just to build myself. This low cost easy to use and fun to fly. This is the BEST VALUE of the year in its class! Easy to add your own video downlink and on screen displays. Seems to be a winner, so far no cons.

This is a suprise, very good quality. Out of the box test flight in manual mode lasted 25 mins. w/ multistar 12,000 lipo. Just a perfect flight from hover to all axis flight. Very smooth and very quick for a big 8oo Hexacopter. Red arms are easy to see in daylight as well as the leds. I have more expensive brands, but i love this easy to fly big platform. The price is awesome. I highly recomend this Hexacopter.
