The hexacopter model have six motors and corresponding
propellers. This adds to the capability of the aircraft and really makes this the optimal choice for anyone flying with expensive cameras attached. Essentially, these models have all of the same major benefits of a quadcopter with a lot more added in.
Power: These models have higher speeds and more power due to the two extra motors included.
Height: Fly higher in the air than ever before. A Hexacopter reaches higher elevations with ease
compared to its counterpart.
Safety: By having 6 motors 120 degrees apart, one motor can die while the rest pick up the slack. This
means that a pilot will be able to safely land the drone even if one motor is damaged. For anyone
coming from a quadcopter, this would be very difficult to do with less motors.
If lose two motors but still have the ability to fly this hexacopter and properly land. The positioning of
the motor will be the deciding factor on whether a pilot can fly or will end up crashing their drone.
You need to carry a heavier payload, meaning you can use better cameras for recording, or heavier
accessories, You can do it using this Hexa Copter.
The pros are:
This Hexa Copter will not start up by pushing the RC throttle sticks directly, as the flying mode can only
be achieved under the manual mode or hovering mode.
The GPS Compass Module is a necessary equipment to achieve high precision hover. After connecting
compass module with GPS module, the Hexa Copter can achieve high-precision fixed-point hovering,
automatic return and other driving functions.
Automatic return when transmitter out of control: The Hexa Copter take off after red led flashes 3 times
and positioning successfully. If remote control signal cannot be detected or shut down the power of
transmitter, Hexa Copter will perform return task, and return to the home point.
In this mode, the Hexa Copter can only keep auto-stability, but cannot keep the hovering altitude. You
still need to control the aircraft by sticks operation, to keep balance and altitude.
GPS Hovering Mode
When the Remote Controller throttle stick stays in the middle, the Copter automatically maintains
hovering; Any increase or decrease the throttle will lead the Copter to rise or fall at a constant speed on
this basis. This Hexa Copter needs open area to use hovering mode, in case of any high buildings affect
the accuracy. In hovering mode, the Copter enables point hovering, impel the throttle stick moving,
release the throttle stick hovering, return home and other automatic functions. The Copter needs 5 or
more GPS satellites to keep hovering, otherwise the aircraft only keep the altitude. GPS accuracy is
better at the altitude of more than 2 meters. Pitch stick: push this stick forward will lead the aircraft fly
forward, backward pushing will lead backwards flying, release the pitch stick immediately will achieve
hovering. Roll stick: push this stick to the left will lead the aircraft fly left, to the right pushing will lead
right direction flying, release the pitch stick immediately will achieve hovering.
Return Home Mode In this mode, the Hexa Copter will automatically backtrack and to the unlock take-
off point within 2.5m range. We ensure to set the GPS positioning before take-off. In GPS positioning,
the copter return home region is within a 2.5m radius of the take-off point. When Hexa Copter distance
from the home point is less than 20m, no matter how high it is, the Copter lock the current altitude and
return directly. When Hexa Copter distance from the home point is more than 20m, the Copter will keep
the current altitude and automatic return when it is higher than 20 meters; otherwise, the Hexa Copter
will firstly climb to 20 meters and then return.
In this mode do not need to identify the multi rotor's nose or tail direction, no matter in which direction
the multi rotor nose is, Pull back (ELE) stick, the aircraft will fly back, push (ELE) stick, the aircraft will fly
away. This fly back/fly away direction is according to the forward/backward direction when the aircraft
- Greater overall power, speed and elevation.
- Safety provided through additional motors.
- Higher overall payload.
- Great control and flight speed.
