We took our latest and greatest out for a spin and the “Big Drone” octo-copter is looking good. Maybe it’s not an incredibly creative name, but when you see her next to the other birds in our fleet the name surely fits.
Final testing is ongoing, but we’re excited about what we’ve seen so far…
She looks good in RED (EPIC) - she can easily lift up to 55 pounds (drone + payload), which enables us to fly the RED EPIC and all the add-on lenses and components that make it the gold standard for high-end cinematography.
She’s resilient - our Big Drone can safely continue flying on only seven motors. We always extensively pre-flight our video drones and do everything to avoid equipment failures, but it’s great to know that we have an extra safety margin to divert and land if an issue arises.
