Product Code: XQ-1500SP
The Gryphon Dynamics X8 Super 1500 is the big brother of the very popular XQ-1400SP. The 1500 X8 is a mix of heavy duty powerhouse yet still remains somewhat compact and can be quickly and easily transition from case to flight mode in very little time. The long arms will accommodate 34" props with room to spare. All Gryphon Dynamics frames are built tough, but the Super line offers larger center plate, thicker carbon fiber, and 50mm hexagonal booms. This allows for more batteries, more space for electronics, and higher payload capacity. Super size frames are designed for 12S 48v high voltage setup because of their ability to easily fit 4 or more high capacity lithium batteries thereby offer more efficient propulsion.
The X8 1500 frame is great for major motion picture cinematography because of its ability to safely and effectively lift popular cameras packages such as the RED Epic, Alexa XT-M, Sony F55 as well as carrying dual REDs or Alexa Minis for Stereo 3D filming. Because of its size and power the 1500 Super can be flown fast and hard with the right UAV operator.
Maximum speed can depend on conditions and pilot ability. The 1500 Super pairs great with the full line of either Freefly or Gremsey gimbals. With this much power you don't have to worry about short flight times or unstable flight due to underpowered power plant. The coaxial motor design make this platform superb at handling wind to keep your camera in position for the shot.
This aircraft works best as a 12S configuration due to its large size and high weight capacity. This airframe is designed for the new T-Motor U13ii for power with the X motor mounts this frame will accommodate a great number of different UAV motors type with up to 34" propellers. As with all Gryphon Dynamics aircraft, arms are removable for transportation, yet they remain rock solid when attached for flight modes. The 1500 Super is most often used for cinema production and industrial applications where lifting large high value payloads in tough conditions is required.
