Draganflyer X8 has 8 Rotors and Makes the Ar.Drone Look Like the Toy It is

I really thought the Parrot AR.Drone was sweet when I first saw it. The thing is a four-propeller helicopter device with a camera you can control from your iPhone. I know the AR.Drone is really just a toy, and the Draganflyer X8 makes it look just like the toy it is.

The X8 is a massive eight-propeller remote surveillance drone with a big old Nikon camera hanging under its belly in the pics that isn’t included. The thing has eight rotors that each has its own motor with more power than previous offerings for a higher payload capacity.

The frame of the device is made from carbon fiber and can fold for portability and storage. The controller for the device is computer sized and gives all the control you need. The copter can carry 35 ounces maximum and measures 36.25″ x 26.25″ x 41.8″ and is 12.6″ tall. I don’t even want to know how much it costs; you have to request a quote to find out.
