Welcome To Tarot 650 V2.0

Based on the successful Tarot 650 V1.0, we visited and took feedback from customers across the country, and around the world, to make the Tarot 650 V2.0 our best product yet!

The Tarot 650 V2.0 now features a canopy as standard with every order, previously it was an optional upgrade. The addition of the canopy protects the main electrical components from dust, light rain, and damage from transport. In our internal tests we have noted a substantial drop in equipment damage when the canopy is used.

The ESC’s now have a hard plastic cover over them and the wires to them, protecting the wiring from damage or fraying if the drone hits something during transport or flight. Save time, and save money in repairs with our new ESC covers, included as standard on all Tarot 650 V2.0 drones.

The Pixhawk and GPS have been upgraded to MRO models, designed and manufactured in the United States. These high-quality components offer higher precision and reliability than ever before and take the Tarot 650 to the next level. We can now offer vapor phase soldering upon request for the Pixhawk flight control board, giving you an even higher level of reliability for the most critical missions.

Along with these main upgrades, dozens of smaller usability and design improvements have been implemented. We are confident you will agree with us that this is the best Tarot 650 we have offered to date!

The Tarot 650 Ready To Fly Drone is a perfect platform for smaller payloads and our most affordable heavy-lift payload drone. The Tarot 650 Ready To Fly Drone has a range of approximately 2 miles, or 3.2 kilometers and can fly for around 20 minutes continuously depending on the operating conditions and payload.

The drone itself is made from some of the top materials available on the market, 3K carbon fiber plates and tubes, aluminum CNC parts which are anodized, plus thick and lightweight carbon fiber plates at the base of each motor. The drone measures 60 centimeters or 23 inches from motor to motor.

The Tarot 650 Drone features arms that fold in at the click of a button to ensure easy transportation. The Tarot 650 Drone can carry around 3.5lbs (1.5kg) of payload with a range of 2 miles (3.2km), has a flight time of up to 20 minutes, comes fully equipped with all required accessories, and has been pretested so it’s ready to fly out of the box.

The drone can either be piloted with the included controller when flying manually or via a laptop or tablet utilizing the free Mission Planner software when flying autonomously. The Pixhawk features a failsafe function and will return to home automatically if it loses signal or if the battery becomes weak.

The Tarot 650 Drone uses the L9R Long Range Radio module, giving you the potential to fly up to 2 miles (3.2km).

For an additional charge, we can extend the range.

High Precision GPS

The Tarot 650 Ready To Fly Drone uses a high-quality Swiss made Ublox NEO-M8N equipped with dual compasses, allowing for incredibly accurate positioning.

Powerful Brushless Motors

The Tarot 650 Drone is powered by 4 brushless motors that feature engineered carbon fiber propellers. The high-quality brushless motors require low maintenance compared to other types of motors and offer superior power and efficiency for the size of the motor, allowing you to lift payloads with ease.

High-Quality Power Module

The onboard power module, manufactured in France by one of our partners uses high-quality materials to regulate the power flow at all times and ensure your Tarot 650 stays in the air and does not have problems with internal parts being burned out.

Precision Engineering

A carefully thought out design ensures that all parts work in sync with each other for a seamless operating experience. Rubber gimbal balls ensure vibrations from the motors do not reach the onboard computer, giving you more precise flight, and prolonging the life of the internal components.

X8 Long Range Drone Mission Planner

Mission Planner Software

Plan your flights with Mission planner, sofware available on PC, Mac, or smartphones/tablets. Draw route plans for the drone and monitor crucial telemetry information in real time.


The Tarot 650 Drone comes with a Taranis QX7 Transmitter by default. The Taranis QX7 is a widely used open source transmitter that features ball bearing gimbals, a backlit LED screen, audio and vibration alerts regarding values, alarms, and settings. The Taranis QX7 also features flight data logging, RSSI alerts, and 16 channels to operate with.

Ultra Portable

The Tarot 650 features a foldable design, allowing it to be folded with ease in a matter of seconds. The design allows the landing gear to be folded away, and the arms to be folded inward to considerably reduce the size for easy transport.
