Gryphon GD-18X

At 1000mm from motor to motor GD-18X is the most popular airframes within our Ready-to-Fly line of drones, but don’t let the size fool you this drone out lifts all the competition in its class. The GD-18X maintains a great size to power ratio by utilising state of the art brushless motors with 18” carbon fibre propellers. Our X8 coaxial motor configuration places two motors per arm, which reduces the overall size of the UAS as well as increasing its performance in adverse weather conditions. The 40mm Z-bend arms add separation between the motors and the payload to help keep the propellers out of the field of view of your sensor package.


In the world of Cinematography this platform is a vey popular match for flying cameras in the 2-7 Kg range such as the Alexa Mini, RED Epic/ Weapon, Canon C300, and Sony FS7. The GD-18X has an adaptable payload interface, which allows for this system to be used for a variety of different mission types including Security, Agriculture, Industrial Inspection and more. The removable arms allow the GD-18X to pack down into one case, yet remain rock solid while in flight mode. All drone systems are tested for best performance before shipping.
