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


    New from Arcsky: the X55 is a quad-rotor unmanned aerial automobile 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 occasions, and may 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 business or industrial payload to be mounted and flown. The X55 could 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 provides an adjunct energy port, which might ship 5V, 12V, or 44.4V (12S) energy, and an auxiliary communications port, which gives entry to CAN, UART, PWM, SBus, and I2C outputs, with a purpose to management gimbals, servos, drop-kits, and a wide range of customized built-in options. The communication bay of the airframe provides entry to FPV, receiver, and telemetry module connections, permitting the operator to customise these gadgets if desired.

    The entire system could be transported with ease, by utilizing the elective transport circumstances. 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 flexibility to plan missions and automate flights, along with providing a variety of as much as 12 miles (20 km) in best situations. Different industrial controllers are additionally simply supported and could 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 gives centimeter-level accuracy and significantly better efficiency in position-holding (loiter) modes. An elective terrain-following rangefinder is accessible, which may also help to keep away from collisions in various terrain situations, in addition to enhance the altitude-holding efficiency in lots of conditions. Lastly, a wide range of FPV cameras could be built-in, permitting excessive definition reside video feed, immediately on the bottom station or controller.

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