Draganflyer X6 Aerial Camera Copter Nearly Flies Itself

by Paul Strauss

Need to shoot some videos or images from way up in the sky? This sophisticated remote-controlled flying machine might be just what you’re looking for.

The Draganflyer X6 is an unmanned, miniature helicopter which can carry wireless video or still digital cameras up, up in the air. Interchangeable modules let you swap between high-def video, still images, low light and thermal imaging cameras.

The craft uses a sophisticated 6-rotor design to maintain smooth, balanced flight, and has an embedded GPS system so you can keep track of the exact location of your copter.

11 on-board sensors and custom application code automatically stabilize the flyer, and if it loses the remote signal, it can automatically land itself and transmit its position via the GPS module.

Check out this video clip in which the operator does everything he can to try and crash the X6, and it just won’t give in.

Draganflyer’s remote control is no slouch either. It features a schmancy OLED display which relays back video, images, and real-time statistics on the helicopter’s flight data and GPS coordinates.

Designed for use in video production, military, emergency management and educational uses, the X6 is certainly no toy. Although I’d love to have one to play with (hint hint, Draganfly guys). And with a starting price tag of $14,995, you’ll be mighty glad it can land itself safely.

You can check out all the pertinent stats, and many more videos of the X6 in action over on the Draganfly website.

    Apologies.

    This is really cool! I wonder if they’ll make a simplified version minus the camera’s and a lot of the price for use by aviation enthusiasts.
