FOXTECH GAIA 160HY-Hybrid hexacopter is a long flight time hexacopter equipped with gasoline-electric hybrid power system. GAIA 160HY-Hybrid is made of carbon fiber material so it is very sturdy. The arms are plugable, which saves more space and makes this drone convenient for storage and transportation. FOXTECH GAIA 160-Hybrid is also equipped with a durable landing gear to ensure a stable landing.
FOXTECH GAIA 160HY-Hybrid hexacopter is equipped with high efficient power system, including T-MOTOR U8II KV85 motor, Supreme 3010T propeller and T-MOTOR Flame 60A ESC. This power system ensures very big loading capacity and a very stable flight performance. GAIA 160HY has 6.5kg lifting capacity on each arm, so GAIA 160HY can still fly even with one motor failure. The biggest bright spot is that Foxtech GAIA 160HY-Hybrid hexacopter has an onboard 2000w generator that offers plenty of power to the 6 very high efficiency motors to ensure a long flight time. With 2kg payload, the flight time is more than 5 hours, and with 4kg payload like a high-end camera, the flight time will be still more than 1.5 hours. An internal combustion engine consumes gasoline and spins a generator to ensure a 48V output. Besides this, a 12S lipo battery package is also installed onboard to offer emergency back-up power for quick climbing and quick maneuvering.
GAIA 160HY-Hybrid Hexacopter is also installed with redundancy flight controllers, three GPS and a full range of optional equipments like RTK GPS, 20km datalink, parachute, secondary radio control and more to make this drone very reliable and very safe.
