Heavy lifter drone for cinema cameras
on Oct 9, 2015 at 4:33:42 pm

we have up for sale a heavy lifter drone specifically made to lift heavy cinema cameras and lenses.

It's a very hot deal.

The drone was built by our company Aeroriprese, based in north of Italy, to satisfy a particular production that was later cancelled.
Our company specializes in aerial work since 2005. At first we used helicams moving on in the later years to drones. Through the years we gained a great, and professional, experience in design, built and maintenence of drones having been employed also as drone thecnical support on many movie productions.

The drone we are selling and each of its components are absolutely brand new and they only passed a very succesful first flight test.

The design has been based on the particular need of a very reliable machine having a great redundancy for heavy payloads.

The components selection has been based on this requirement.
The motors, the ESCs and the power distribution system have been oversized to allow the flight also in extreme high temperature climate conditions with no worry of components overheat.

It is equipped with 8 motors from T-Motor, model U7. The carbon fiber propellers are also from T-Motor and are 18 inch in size. The ESCs are Hobbywing FLYFUN 100A - High Voltage.

During construction we performed a strict selection of the best ESC to be employed, doing also bench tests. During those tests the Flyfun 100A ESC proved to be of great reliability and they were able to provide maximum power to the motors for several minutes (only limited by the battery used in the test) and they just kept barely warm. Morover since the Flyfun 100A - HV are high refresh rate ESCs (432hz) they perfectly suited in drone construction.

This is probably the best machine out there able to handle great and continuous power demands with great redundancy.

During the only flight test we even did the lift power test performing a takeoff with the autopilot set to “manual” and we got a very good demonstration of payload capability having a lift off at about ¼ of gas.

Since we are busy on other projects our will is to sell this machine to someone, operator or technician, that would take care of installing his own radio and camera gimbal and that should take care of dialing in the Wookong parameters for his particular needs to make it opartive.

For this reason our request is very moderate and regards only the costs of components and materials that we invested in the project for an amount of € 5.800 + shipment (on request we may consider the possibility of selling the drone as a comlete Ready To Fly package, in that case we can do an estimate)

We are also offering a brusheless camera gimbal that is perfect for the Red Epic camera or similar.
Even the gimbal is brand new and was never installed, in this sale the gimbal request is € 1.000 and it comes with accessories even for hand held use (see picture).

Some thecnical details:
- CNC cut 3mm thick carbon fiber frame with spacers and arms in anodized alluminium
- Foldable arms for easy transport
- Double led lighting on every arm (see photo)
- Led lighting activated from Rc
- DJI retractable landing gear
- n. 8 T-Motor U7 brushless motors
- n. 8 ESC Hobbywing FLYFUN - 100A - HV
