Elevate you DSLR, mirrorless camera, or compact cinema camera with the ready-to-fly xFold Dragon x12 Multi-Rotor with U11 Motors. This version of the xFold comes with a default configuration of x12, but can be reconfigured as a quad, hexa, x8 or x12 to best serve your requirements. Once you are done shooting for the day, the prop arms and legs fold up for easy transport.

This ready-to-fly (RTF) bundle is designed to function as a nearly complete system. To start, it includes a 3-axis brushless gimbal for cameras, such as the Alexa mini or Red Epic, weighing up to 8 pounds. For high quality monitoring from the cinema camera, there is a 1080p60 HD downlink plus there is an SD resolution FPV camera with 5.8G video transmitter for the benefit of the pilot. An OSD module enables the pilot to see key flight data superimposed over the FPV image (receiver and FPV goggles available separately). For control, the multi-rotor incorporates a customized version of DJI's A2 flight control system along with two advanced 14-channel transmitters - one for piloting and one dedicated to gimbal operation. Two 22,000 mAh flight batteries mean you'll have a spare ready once the first runs out. Finally, there are two cases to pack the aircraft, gimbal, monitor, and the rest of the included accessories away in for transport or storage.

Flexible, Folding Frame Design
Folding design reduces weight and makes multi-rotor more compact for easy transport
Designed for fat on-set assembly and deployment
Supports many third-party professional gimbals (apart from included xFold Gimbal)
Payload distributed over a large surface area to maximize efficiency
Will fly a single Red Epic for up to an hour
Anti-vibration isolation provides further stability for camera
Recommended payload capacity of up to 100 lb
Configurable as quad, hexa, x8, or x12
Includes a set of 12 carbon fiber propellers
3-Axis Brushless Gimbal for Cinema Camera
Optimized for DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and compact cinema cameras, the included gimbal will support payloads of up to 8 lb. Driven by three brushless motors, the gimbal provides camera stabilization and helps compensate for unwanted motion such as wind buffeting the multi-rotor. Additionally, the gimbal enables the camera to be moved independently of the aircraft - a second transmitter is included for dedicated gimbal operation
Amimon CONNEX Wireless HD Video Link
    The CONNEX system enables you to view a live, near-zero latency, feed from your cinema camera at up to 1080p60 resolution. Suitable for framing as hot composition as well as FPV, the transmitter boasts a range of up to 3300' line-of-sight (depending on conditions). The transmitted signal is encrypted to help prevent eavesdropping. Additionally, the transmitter can link to up to four receivers for production here multiple users need to keep an eye on what's happening (additional receivers available separately)
    FPV Camera and 5.8G Video Downlink
      An 900 TVL resolution FPV camera is included to give the pilot a first-person, "eye-in-the-sky" perspective from the multi-rotor. The video feed is relayed back to the ground end via a 5.8 GHz, 600 mW video transmitter (receiver and FPV goggles available separately)

      Note: The video transmitter requires a HAM radio license for operation in FCC regions
      DJI iOSD Mini
      To accompany the 5.8G downlink from the FPV camera, the iOSD module overlays telemetry data on top of the video feed keeping the pilot apprised of vital flight stats, such as speed, GPS coordinates, battery voltage, and more
      WXGA Monitor with IPS Panel
        A WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution monitor is included for use as an FPV display or to monitor the feed provided by the CONNEX from the DSLR or cinema camera
        IPS panel for wide viewing angle
        400 nits brightness and 800:1 contrast ratio
        HDMI and composite video inputs
        3.5 mm headphone jack and speaker
        Peaking focus assist
        Camera 5D II Mode
        Check Field: Red, green, blue, or mono
        Screen Markers: 80%, 85%, 90%, 93%, 96%, and 2.35:1

        DJI A2 Flight Control System
          The A2 flight control system is comprised of the main controller, IMU, GPS, PMU, and Bluetooth LED indicator

          Main Controller
          The aircraft's equivalent of a CPU. The main controller takes pilot input and, factoring in data from the IMU, GPU, and other sources, instructs the ESCs at the motors. In addition, the A2 main controller incorporates a 2.4 GHz DR16 receiver which is compatible with Futaba FASST series and DJI DESST series transmitters (radio controllers). To connect peripherals, the main unit features a CAN-bus terminal with 12 output channels

          IMU
          The IMU, or inertial measurement unit, is the primary source of information used by the flight controller so that the aircraft can maintain a stable flying condition. It uses a combination of accelerometers and gyros to collect this data

          GPS
          The GPS allows the aircraft to keep track of where it is in two-dimensional flight. This enables various types of assisted flying not otherwise possible, such as keeping the aircraft in a fixed hover while shooting video. A high gain antenna mounts on the end of a stock installed on top of the frame

          PMU
          The power management unit (PMU) regulates power being fed to the flight controller and other components. It features voltage detection and alarming, and has an extendable CAN-bus port

          LED Bluetooth Indicator
          The LED-BTU-I module provides the USB and Bluetooth connectivity required so you can adjust various flight control parameters using a computer or mobile device. Bluetooth wireless communications can be extend using the 2.4G Bluetooth Datalink, which relays Bluetooth data over 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi for use with the iPad Ground Station, a waypoint-based autopilot mapping system
        Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC)
        On multi-rotor aircraft-- as with airplanes--pressing "forward" on the transmitter (radio controller) moves the nose forward. However, because multi-rotors are largely symmetrical, it can be easy to lose track of which way the nose is pointing, causing the controls to become counter-intuitive. To avoid this, IOC--when enabled using the assistant software--defines movement relative to the pilot so that, for example, pressing forward will always result in the aircraft moving forward from the pilot's perspective
        Point of Interest (POI)
        When the GPS signal is good, users can record the current position of the aircraft as a point of interest by a preset switch on the transmitter (radio controller). The aircraft can achieve a circling flight around the point of interest with the nose pointing at the POI in an area of 16.4 to 1,640' radius, when the roll command is given. This function is ideal for shooting of a fixed or stationary object, creating an aerial tracking shot
        Intelligent Landing Gear Function
        Once you enable the Intelligent Landing Gear function in the assistant software, the landing gear will default at the lower position when the aircraft is on the ground. The system will also lower the landing gear in an emergency, the event of motor failure, or on auto landing, to protect the aircraft and gimbal. You can lower or retract the landing gear using a switch when the aircraft's altitude is over 16.4' from the ground
        Return to Home Failsafe
        Assuming the GPS has been properly calibrated and enough satellites are available, the aircraft will automatically return to its home point in the event contact with the transmitter (radio controller) is ever lost

        It is also possible to assign a button using the assistant software that, when pressed, will cause the aircraft to automatically return to the home point
        One-Motor Fail Protection
        Available when the aircraft is in attitude or GPS attitude mode. In the event one motor fails the aircraft can maintain a stable flying condition, enough that it can safely be brought back home and landed
