Carbon SCARAB Vampire 12mm airframe Core - HexiiCopter H
USD525 - on sale USD399 - Vampire H has the lifting power of 6 motors for Sony Nex style cams, but with unique clear view forward (no props) and low profile flat hex for travel - for PARIS v5r3 with iOSD or Wookong - Price has been altered downward to reflect the options for either ; a "stills" servo gimbal ; or a GoPro4 on our new brushless video gimbal - our unique fully protected-GoPro brushless gimbal must be purchased separatley now. Excludes gimbal - Excludes 8-Balls (see below). Excludes PARIS v5r3 autopilot - these can be added to cart separately. In the 1st Video (right) you can see the indy filmMaker greggsy2000 using his fully enclosed and protected GoPro in a high risk environment like a rocky waterfall (yet his goPro4 is safe inside the GoPro clear housing) - he uses the gimbal tilt function @ 2:14 to tilt/look vertically down at the waterfall, as he flies over the lip of the falls.
the CarbonVampireSCARAB is a large stable 700mm Hexii for Aerial Photography - it is much bigger than a 450mm yet still easy to put in the back seat of the car becuase the camer ais NOT on the both like others. Scarab kits require screw-driver drone assembly skills - has the Has the flight characteristic of a Quad - yet is smooth and light, thanks to a super strong CENTRAL CORE - with 3 decks it has room for sensors - can carry an APSC sized "stills" camera like a Sony Nex - PARIS Sirius™ can be mounted on the mid-TOP-DECK - slender 12/10mm double thickness booms & light weight mounts have been designed to reduce airflow drag being aerodynamically clean and efficient with low drag under the propeller wash zone. Scarab Vampire is set up as an H configuration where the side motors are NOT used for yaw - their function is to provide lift near the centre. If you choose to run a WookongM do not config as Hex - you must use a custom motor-mix - for PARIS Sirius™ we have written our own custom mix called H. The booms can be rotated/offset by small 3-5° tilt increments to provide positive-offset-thrust lines rather than the poor yaw control associated with rectangular or flat boom frames. Can be upgraded to Octa at any time by adding 2 booms/motors/ESC and reprogramming the PARIS or WookongM - or a Octa 4X co-axial - or downgraded to a Quad - the Airframe has 8 boom mounting positions.
the 2nd video shows both 170° ultra wide for FPV view (what the pilot sees) & GoPro HD set to 127° which cuts out all props in view
the 3rd video shot in San Fran filmMaker pilot CrazyJ Anderson puts his Vampire thru its paces with a Sony Nex5 Camera attached. Jason is a very skilled pilot who worked his way up from the small Reconn and the Scarab Tiikoptas
Vampire is a fast, stable and smooth platform and easily handles a gimbal+GP3 for Video or an APSC camera like a Nex for "stills"
Requires Advanced problem solving mental skills - NOT suited to people who cannot solve a puzzle - why? becuase you must understand a complex electronic UAV, to build it.
Excludes training - We are not responsible for training and do not offer a free TAFE/Uni course with every multicopter kit - sorry - Training is a reality of life. Different people need different amounts of training - Our experience is that most people with an "Above average aptitude" and problem solving mind EASILY build this aircraft - but some have an unrealistic expectation of their own abilities and fail. YOU MUST DOWNLOAD THE INSTRUCTIONS before buying and make up your own mind if you understand everything, or not.
