The SPY X8 U3 RTF Octocopter from xFold is designed to be a compact, portable solution for aerial videographers shooting with a GoPro or similar action camera. The aircraft's X8 configuration allows it to provide lift and better performance than quad- and even hexa-rotor alternatives. With its included 3-axis brushless gimbal, 5.8 GHz video transmitter (downlink), and 7" FPV monitor, the operator is able to acquire professional level results without hauling bulky equipment around. Once filming is done for the day, the SPY folds down to a 13.5 x 8.7" footprint for easy transport.

In addition to the gimbal and video downlink, this ready-to-fly (RTF) bundle features a 14-channel xFold/Futaba transmitter (radio controller), two flight batteries, and a hardshell travel case.

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 GoPro / Action Camera
The included gimbal is compatible with a GoPro or similar-style action camera weighing up to 14 ounces. 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
5.8 GHz Video Downlink
A 5.8 GHz analog video transmitter is included to beam a live image back to the ground end. For the ground-end, a 32-channel dual diversity receiver is included for connection to a separately available filed monitor if FPV glasses. It can also be used with a wide range of radio-equipped wireless field monitors and FPV receivers that support 5.8 GHz analog
7" FPV Monitor with IPS Panel
To monitor a live feed from the camera, a 7" field monitor is with 32-channel dual diversity receiver is included

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 apply 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
If a hexa-rotor or 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

Note: This feature does not work for quadcopters
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
