Pixhawk and Mission Planner

The X8 Long Range Cargo Drone features a Futaba 14SG radio, Pixhawk flight control system and a lightweight strong X8 frame. Flight plans can be programmed into the Pixhawk flight controller via Mission Planner software, allowing for autonomous flying. The Mission Planner software also allows the operator to monitor data such as the GPS location of the X8 Long Range Drone, speed, altitude, voltage, and battery information all live while the drone is flying.


Payload Capacity

The X8 Long Range Cargo Drone is one of the largest drones on the market, with a wingspan of approximately 2.12 meters or 6.95 feet. It has a large cargo box which can carry payloads of up to 2kg at a time. An automated cargo door that opens mid-flight to drop payloads, as well as a winch system that can lower payloads during flight are optional add-ons.


Catapult Launch and Landing

The X8 Long Range Cargo Drone features a catapult to launch it into the sky, a feature that ensures much less battery power is used getting the X8 Long Range Cargo Drone to its cruising altitude. A cargo box, enhanced battery more powerful motor, and landing gear are features included that are not in the standard X8 drone.

The landing gear ensures that the X8 Long Range Cargo Drone does not suffer any damage to its body when landing with a heavy payload. The landing gear is fully retractable and can be retracted with the hit of a button to reduce drag during flight.



The X8 Long Range Cargo Drone is pre-built and tested and is ready to fly out of the box.



Upgrades are available such as FPV, extended range up to 30 miles (50 kilometers), FPV googles, a cargo winch, and custom paintwork. FPV allows the user to see live footage on a monitor mounted above the controller, live from a camera mounted on the front of the X8 Long Range Drone.

This FPV allows the operator to pilot the drone as if they were sitting inside it and can stream up to 30 miles (50 kilometers) away.
