COPTERWORKS D1

A unique, rugged and full-featured quadcopter.

Introducing D1, our first multirotor aircraft. Drawing from our extensive experience with industrial RC helicopters, we’ve produced a unique aircraft- with performance and functionality in mind.

Starting with the frame, which holds a matching pair of Tattu 12S, 16000 MaH Smart Batteries *, internally. This optimal placement allows simultaneous use of top and bottom payload rails and helps improve flight dynamics.

To make D1 as portable as possible, every protruding feature folds, with nothing to detach- allowing this fairly large craft to fit in a surprisingly compact space. For the purpose of movement within the same job site, and assuming all other safety considerations are satisfied, there is no need to remove batteries for placement in a case, either. Folding features include landing gear, GPS unit, motor arms, as well as antennas. A retractable landing gear set is currently in development, and will be available soon.

Moving on to electronics- a set of three compartments provide protection against elements. They are designed to hold the Pixhawk Cube, and specific Mauch PDB’s and BEC’s, which ship installed in every unit. The D1 is also ready for installation of an RFD900 telemetry set(not included).

For propulsion, we picked a motor set with an IPX7 rating- sealed for reliable operation in humidity and harsh environments, coupled with 30″ folding props.
