xFold rigs X8 U5 overview

  • 1Description

The TRAVEL X8 Octocopter from xFold is designed to strike a balance between versatility and portability. It features a 3-axis gimbal that will support cameras weighing up to 3.7 pounds. This makes it perfect for most DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and compact video cameras such as action cameras. Thanks to the inclusion of two 14-channel transmitters (radio controllers), single- and dual-operator modes are supported. With two operators, one will pilot the aircraft while the other will operate the gimbal and camera. The Amimon CONNEX Full HD video link is included for the camera operator to see a high-quality feed in real time. In addition, there is a 5.8 GHz analog downlink as well as two 7" field monitors, which can be used for FPV (first-person view).

In addition to the video downlinks, monitor, and gimbals, this ready-to-fly (RTF) bundle includes two LiPo flight batteries and one hardshell travel case.

Note: FPV goggles available separately.

Aircraft

Toray 3k Weave Carbon Fiber Frame
The main airframe is constructed from carbon fiber to take advantage of the material's high strength-to-weight ratio. 3k-width weave is the same weave commonly found on bicycle frames, as it is strong while still providing a degree of flexibility.

Gimbal Stabilizer and Video Downlink

3-Axis Gimbal for 3.7lb Camera
The included gimbal is compatible with a DSLR, mirrorless camera, or action camera weighing up to 3.7 pounds. The gimbal provides image stabilization while helping isolate the camera from vibration caused by the motors. Its three axes keep the camera horizontally and vertically level while still allowing the camera to pan left and right.
Amimon CONNEX Wireless HD Video Link
With the CONNEX downlink, you can view a live, near-zero latency feed from the camera at up to 1080p60 resolution. Suitable for monitoring, FPV, and gimbal operation, the system features a range of up to 3300' line-of-sight (depending on conditions). It incorporates an S.BUS relay, so that gimbal controls for S.BUS-compatible gimbals can be relayed to back to the aircraft, and can display OSD data from MAVLINK telemetry modules (telemetry system available separately). The video transmission is encrypted to help prevent eavesdropping. The transmitter can link to up to four receivers, which allows, for example, the pilot and camera operator to each have their own monitor (two are included) or FPV goggles (not included).
FPV Camera with 5.8 GHz Video Downlink
In addition to the HD feed provided by the CONNEX, an FPV camera and 5.8 GHz analog video transmitter are included for the sake of the pilot or drone operator. The feed can be viewed on the included FPV monitors or a separately available set of FPV glasses.
7" FPV Monitor with IPS Panel
To monitor a live feed, either from the acquisition camera using the CONNEX system or from the FPV camera, two 7" field monitors are included. Each features a 1280 x 800 resolution panel with IPS technology to help improve the off-axis viewing angle. A 32-channel dual diversity receiver is built in for receiving the signal from the 5.8 GHz downlink.

DJI Naza-M V2 Flight Controller with GPS

Supports DJI Ground Station
By adding the separately available Bluetooth Datalink to the flight control system, you can plot waypoint-based autopilot courses using an iPad app or Windows software.
Software-Based Aircraft Stabilization
The system works with or without GPS and helps keep the aircraft stable and on course by taking data from gyros and other sensors and applying it to any pilot inputs. Naza-M V2 features GPS course correction plus GPS and compass interference monitoring, which combine to prevent the aircraft drifting off course do to magnetic interference that may throw off the compass (the GPS must be enabled and properly calibrated for this feature to work).
Takeoff Assistance
Helps ensure a stable, drift-free take off even on uneven surfaces.
Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC)
Because multi-rotors are virtually symmetrical, it can be easy to lose track of which end is the "front". IOC features two modes to help make flying more intuitive:
  • Core Lock: "Forward" is always the same as the direction the nose was pointing when the aircraft first took-off, regardless of the actual orientation of the aircraft.
  • Home Lock: "Forward" is always away from the origin defined by the Home Point that was established during GPS calibration. In other words, "forward" will be away from the Home Point (pilot) and "back" always toward the Home Point. Moving the stick right or left will cause the aircraft to follow a circular path around the Home Point.

 

Motor Failure Protection
When an octo-rotor equipped with a Naza-M V2 suffers a single motor failure in flight while in attitude or GPS mode, it will maintain its altitude and rotate around the stopped motor. This allows it to fly safely back to home and land.
Failsafe and Auto Go Home Support
If the connection between the multi-rotor and the remote control (transmitter) are disconnected during flight, a failsafe system will activate. Provided there was enough GPS signal at the time of the disconnection, the multi-rotor will fly back to its point of takeoff and land automatically. This feature can also be triggered manually using the One-Key Go-Home function activated using Assistant software.
Assistant Software for Mobile Devices
Using an iOS mobile device with Bluetooth LE support, parameters can be adjusted at any time the multi-rotor is within range. Connection records are automatically stored by the Bluetooth module and protected by password. Where Internet access is available, parameters can be automatically synchronized to the cloud and restored immediately if you switch to a different mobile device.
Built-in Functions
  • Multiple autopilot control modes
  • Enhanced fail-safe
  • Low voltage protection
  • S-Bus receiver support
  • PPM receiver support
  • Independent PMU module
  • 2-axis gimbal support

DJI iOSD Module

    The included iOSD module superimposes flight telemetry data over the FPV video feed being sent to the ground-end via the 5.8 GHz transmitter. This allows you to keep apprised of vital flight stats, such as remaining battery voltage, speed, and altitude.
