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.

Intelligent Orientation Control (IOC)
- 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.
