This octacopter UAV has a coaxial X-8 configuration to ensure in-flight redundancy with an improved weight to power ratio. A monocoque carbon fiber frame reduces the need of screws while improving strength, aerodynamic properties and protection against the elements. This UAV was designed for continuous use in combination with an external charging system. Batteries are integrated within the frame and require partial disassembly to be accessible, unlike the Air-G5.
