X55 – multi-role utility drone for 3-hour flights


New from Arcsky: the X55 is a quad-rotor unmanned aerial car platform with distinctive flight time and payload capabilities. One of many key differentiators of the X55 is the modularity and interchangeability of energy sources. Inside seconds, the drone can go from utilizing battery energy (utilizing the Battery Module) to hybrid gas-electric energy (utilizing the Hybrid Module). Moreover, there’s a bottom-mount battery tray choice that permits for top-mount payloads. With the Hybrid Module, the X55 can obtain as much as 3 hour flight instances, and might accommodate payloads as much as 6 kilos. With the Battery Module, the X55 can carry as much as 20-pound payloads, for as much as 23 minutes. The X55 has a common mounting platform and rail system beneath the deck of the drone to permit for virtually any industrial or industrial payload to be mounted and flown. The X55 might be run autonomously, with missions that may be programmed by way of waypoints and industry-standard floor management stations.

For straightforward integration with a wide range of payloads, the X55 affords an adjunct energy port, which may ship 5V, 12V, or 44.4V (12S) energy, and an auxiliary communications port, which offers entry to CAN, UART, PWM, SBus, and I2C outputs, so as to management gimbals, servos, drop-kits, and a wide range of customized built-in options. The communication bay of the airframe offers entry to FPV, receiver, and telemetry module connections, permitting the operator to customise these gadgets if desired.

The entire system might be transported with ease, through the use of the non-compulsory transport instances. The airframe folds right into a compact quantity in lower than a minute, and the Hybrid Module has its personal devoted case.

The default controller is the Herelink, which is an built-in controller, floor station, and digital transmission system that has the power to plan missions and automate flights, along with providing a spread of as much as 12 miles (20 km) in ideally suited circumstances. Different industrial controllers are additionally simply supported and might be built-in by request.

The X55 is RTK succesful and solely requires the setup of the bottom RTK station to make the most of this characteristic, which then offers centimeter-level accuracy and significantly better efficiency in position-holding (loiter) modes. An non-compulsory terrain-following rangefinder is on the market, which can assist to keep away from collisions in various terrain circumstances, in addition to enhance the altitude-holding efficiency in lots of conditions. Lastly, a wide range of FPV cameras might be built-in, permitting excessive definition stay video feed, immediately on the bottom station or controller.

The primary models shall be transport in December 2022, and are manufactured in our Minneapolis, MN facility. NDAA compliant variations of the X55 can be found for those who require that certification.
