Drones seem to be everywhere. The problem is, most of them are multi-rotors that excel at one thing: hovering. Hovering solves one side of the problem, but when shooting a fast subject, you need speed. Without compromising precision hovering capabilities, we have created something so fast and stable that it broke the 100 km/h barrier. Enter the X PlusOne.
At its core the X PlusOne is a revolutionary hybrid. It combines multi-rotor capabilities with high speed flight from its fixed wing. The X PlusOne feels right at home hovering with the multi-rotors or skimming the treetops at blistering speeds!
X PlusOne – “A Quadcopter Plus a Flying Wing”
A Drone Redefined
Without compromising precision hovering capabilities, we have created something fast and stable. At its core the X PlusOne is a revolutionary hybrid. It combines multi-rotor capabilities with high speed flight from its fixed wing.
Easy to Fly
If you can fly a multi-rotor or an RC airplane, you can fly the X PlusOne. The craft self-stabilizes in both hover and forward flight modes. Transitioning between the two is a matter of simply flipping one switch. Our on-board computer and sensors manage the details. The X PlusOne is capable of carrying an array of filming apparatuses. From a simple mini DV camera to the ever-popular GoPro. Our optional stabilizing gimbal platform renders silky smooth video.
How it Works
The X PlusOne can take off, hover, and land like a traditional multi-rotor, but that’s where the similarities stop. The key differentiator is this: In place of the quadcopter frame is an upward facing wing. This allows the X PlusOne to pitch over 90 degrees and fly nose-first at over 60 mph (100 km/h). Flight control is handled by varying motor speed to provide pitch, roll, and yaw control, even in forward flight mode.
