    Skywalker X8 Long Range V2.1- Ready To Fly

    Skywalker X8 Long Range V2.1- Ready To Fly

    Based on the successful Skywalker X8 Long Range V1.0 - V2.0, we took feedback from our engineering team and customers around the world to make the V2.1 the best Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone yet!

    The Skywalker X8 Long Range V2.1 features a number of improvements. The addition of highly visible CREE LED lights ensures the drone is visible by the operator, and other air traffic up to 3 miles away. Our focus on safety continues, with an optional ADS-B module now available for the Skywalker X8 Long Range, allowing you to see all air traffic up to 30 miles away on the Mission Planner screen. 

    Our new Li-Ion battery pack, hand built by technicians at our facilities using high quality Samsung Li-Ion cells replaces the LiPo packs we previously used for this drone. The Li-ion pack is much higher quality, while also weighing 32% less than the LiPo packs, translating into more flight time. 

    The Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone is highly customizable to meet the end users requirements. The base model has a 2122mm wingspan, range of approximately 2 miles (3.22 km), and can fly for around 1 hour continuously depending on the operating conditions and payload. It is powered by a Made In USA Pixhawk flight controller and can be configured with either Arupilot (default & recommended), or PX4 upon request.
     
    *Please note, the landing gear pictured is not included in the base model, and is an optional add-on*

    With the Pixhawk flight controller system, the operator can program waypoints and flight plans into the drone before takeoff. The high quality Made In USA Pixhawk flight controller features manual flying modes, stabilize mode, and a (fail-safe function) return to home mode in addition to the autonomous mode. The drone can be piloted with the included controller when flying manually or via a laptop or tablet utilizing the Mission Planner software when flying autonomously.

    Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone GPS

    High Precision GPS

    The Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone uses a high-quality US/Swiss made Ublox NEO-M8N equipped with dual compasses, allowing for incredibly accurate positioning.

    If you require even more precise positioning or plan to fly in areas were the standard GPS cannot lock onto satellites (such as inside buildings), please check out our Skywalker X8 Long Range RTK option. 

    Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone Pixhawk Long Range Module

    Designed For Long Ranges

    The Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone uses the L9R Long Range Radio module, giving you the potential to fly up to 2 miles (3.22 km).

    With the optional RFD900x Telemtry Radio add-on, listed at the bottom of the page you can extend the range of the Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone to 12 miles (20Km)

    Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone Li-Ion Battery

    High Quality Li-Ion Battery

    We have begun hand building the battery packs for the Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone at our facilities using high-quality Samsung 18650 cells. This battery pack weighs 32% less than the same sized LiPo packs we used before, giving you the same great power while saving weight which directly translates into additional flight time or payload.

    Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone Onboard Led Lighting

    Triple CREE LED's

    .

    The Skywalker X8 Long Range Drone utilizes 3 CREE LED lights, that are visible with a 3 mile range. These powerful LED lights ensure easy visibility of the Skywalker X8 Drone from the ground, and also make it clearly visible to other aircraft in the vicinity. There is a red light on the left, a green light on the right, and a white light on the bottom. 

    Skywalker X8 Long Range Pixhawk Drone Mission Planner Software
