This CarbonCore Octo 1000 is fitted with the megaRadius camera mount for larger cameras like the Red Epic - it kind of dwarfs my camera! The camera stabilization is handled by a HoverFly GIMBAL controller, which does not require external pots and is highly configurable.
To provide enough lift for heavy cameras, we are using T-Motor MT2826 motors and 2x 5800mah 5S LiPos. For trimming out and configuration we used APC 13x6.5 props, which worked well, but it is now flying with XOAR 13x6 beechwood props. For stabilization, it is using a Wookong controller. How does it fly? Like a dream, and it is absolutely rock solid. In flight video coming soon! - Just as soon as it stops raining ;-)
The frame, motors, props and speed controllers are all available from ElectriFlite. Please contact us if you need advice on the best combinations for your project.
