Gryphon GD-40X Heavy Lift 

Product Description

The Gryphon GD-40X has been used on the largest Hollywood blockbusters since 2015. With 1000's of logged hours onset it is a heavy-duty powerhouse yet still remains somewhat compact and can be quickly and easily transition from travel mode to flight mode in very little time. With its enormous useful load of nearly 40kg it has no equal for industrial use. All Gryphon Dynamics frames are built tough, but the GRYPHON GD-X line offers larger center plate, thicker carbon fibre, and ultra stiff booms. This allows for different combinations of batteries and more space for payload sensors. Running on a high voltage setup it carries its maximum weight effortlessly. Because of this, the aircraft is great for anything from major motion picture cinematography to specialist payloads because of its ability to safely and effectively lift heavy packages.


Industrial Grade Construction

A state of the art unmanned aerial system starts with the building materials. If you are interested in the best unmanned aerial systems you can start by looking at what we are made of. Gryphon Dynamics utilises state of the art carbon fibre weave and fabrication techniques to make the industrial grade carbon fibre parts. Many of these techniques were developed and perfected in-house by our engineers. Where many other UAV companies will outsource every aspect of either the design and manufacturing Gryphon Dynamics takes a vertically integrated approach to design, fabrication, and construction to allow for a seamless airframe with a solid construction and clean design. Gryphon Dynamic frames are built to industrial grade standards to ensure that our hardware will out compete the elements our clients operate in every day.


When operating any unmanned aerial system safety should be the foremost concern. Operators must take into account how their equipment can reduce risk to personnel and payloads. The design of the airframe can play a big role in reducing risk to mechanical and electrical failures. Gryphon Frames are well built with a sturdy construction and will be subject to less vibration and thus less wear and tear on the aircraft during flight. Our redundant power systems ensure your payloads stay safe and in control in the event of a motor or battery loss. Aircraft grade aluminium joints and reinforced motor mounts stand up to the test of repeated use and outperform lighter plastic joints and locking mechanisms.


Integrated Electonics

Gryphon Dynamics frames are designed with the electronics and wiring needs in mind. The frames will accept a variety of different types of flight controllers, ESCs and motors depending on your payload requirements however still allow for these components to seamless integrate into the frame components.


Our power distribution and dual BEC boards keep wiring organised and professional. Having a clean setup makes maintaining your aircraft through visual inspections more effective and therefore helps increase your performance and safety. The dual BEC is adjustable for supplying power to accessories such as LEDs, retractable landing legs, sensor packages, video transmitters and is adaptable for any number of mission requirements. Its position in the frame makes adjusting voltage settings quick and easy. The PDB which works with the BEC or on its own will handle up to 1000 amps, and if more power is needed can be used with a multiple PDB's to spread the load. The integrated electrical design makes swapping components outs quick and does not require a full tear down of the airframe.


Modular Design

One of the hardest parts of picking an unmanned aerial system is making sure you are getting the right platform for the mission requirements of today and of the future. Gryphon frames feature a modular based design which makes the airframe adaptable, portable, as well as future proof.


Adaptable: different environments call for different UAS configuration. With the modular based arm design the Gryphon Dynamics User can swap from a coaxial arm, to a flat arm configuration in minutes, or change motor specs from power house to endurance runner.


Portable: Arms can be removed from center hub for easy transport. The arms use high grade aluminium joints to lock together with incredible rigidness and strength so the frame does not need to make any compromises in strength for portability. When lifting heavy high value payloads, this is an absolute must.


Future Proof: Everyone who uses electronics knows that the rate of advancement is happening faster every day. With Gryphon Dynamics modular design in both the arms and center frame there is a clear and easy way to upgrade your hardware with the next advancement in motor, ESC, or other yet to be dreamt off electronics. You can rest easy knowing your frame will live up to today's mission requirement, and still be relevant for future mission requirements as the UAS community continues to push the limits of what's possible.
