The DAx8 is a robust multi-rotor aircraft for commercial, industrial and ISR applications. The unique 8 rotor design allows for the DAx8 to carry a large payload while providing more safety and redundancy to the system.
The advanced software and GPS guidance provide the aircraft with self-stabilizing capability and multi-waypoint navigation. The airframe is fully molded carbon fiber for exceptional strength and lightweight. The system is capable of carrying a payload of up to 3.5 lbs. such as a high definition stabilized video and data link.
Up to 30 minutes of flight time*
Rotors are surrounded by shrouds for extra safety in handling.
Carbon Fiber Airframe
Made by hand in the USA, the DAx8’s carbon fiber airframe allows for lightweight handling, longer flight times, and more sensor and camera capabilities.
The DAx8 is easily controlled through a tablet or laptop using waypoint navigation or through manual controls.
Camera and Sensors
Several cameras and sensors can be installed and configured for specific needs and missions, such as Visible, Thermal, Infrared, UV, Multi-spectral, Hyper-spectral, Atmospheric and Photogrammetry.
The DAx8 and it’s payload(s) can be optionally configured for water landing and take-off operations.
With many options for payloads and sensors, and custom configurations, the DAx8’s diverse capabilities allows for near endless applications in the commercial world.
The DAx8’s unique design allows it to be configured to meet the tough demands for emergency personnel and to be rapidly deployed during emergency situations and operations.
Search and Rescue
By utilizing a lightweight airframe, VTOL take-off and landing and way-point controls, the DAx8 is able to used quickly; be it in a confined remote location or at a research facility.
