PLATFORM

ELIX-XL frame is fully modular design from carbon fibre.  Critical parts are made from light metals.  All details are precision CNC manufactured. Multirotor construction is strong enough to withstand rough landings.

 

Both cameras are mounted in a gimble, which compensates the UAV-s movement along all axes and therefore keeps the camera module always oriented. The gimble is in the nose module.

 

CENTRE BODY / AIRFRAME:

The airframe holds the arms and supports FC, batteries, gimbal, receiver and other sensors.

 

ARMS and LANDING SKID:

Foldable arms are made from carbon tubes for easy transportation. The whole design gives possibility for fast deployment.
