DS450 Quadcopter

DS450 is our brand new quadcopter, with a flight time of over 25 minutes due to the extremely efficient propulsion combination. The Pixhawk flight controller fits inside the frame with the all in one GPS system sitting on the top deck, creates a clean clutter free custom drone solution. We use a foldable carbon fibre frame modified to our custom requirements. The 2212 motors are critical to support the use of DJI propellers.

Features:

  • Over 25 minute flight time
  • Folds to 45cm x 20cm x 15cm
  • 9″ DJI Quick release Propellers for easy use
  • 2Kg payload capacity
  • All in one GPS with Safety switch and status LED
  • Drop mechanism can be added for falconry purpose

The battery

You need to power the drone for it to turn on of course, however how do you power it correctly? After plenty of careful research, so far we have found only one battery that suits our needs perfectly. The GensAce Tattu 6750mAh 4S Lipo, if you are familiar with GensAce you would already know the quality and durability of their batteries, which is why it was a no brainer to use them on all of our systems we build. In our qualified opinion, this is the best 4S battery on the market. We build the DS450 as a 4S system and not 6S for a few important reasons:

  • Airline restrictions – Most UK airlines have a limit of 100wh for battery packs and the GensAce Tattu 6750 we are offering to you is 99.9wh so you should be able to fly with the drone and battery. However we still recommend you check with your airline.
  • Lightweight – Compared to most 4S Lipos with the required amount of power, the GensAce Tattu 6750 was the most dense, with an outstanding power to weight ratio. We found we can save around 100g without losing any power with these, meaning you will get more flight time.

The radio

Every drone should be radio controlled, this allows for a much more accurate and safe flight. We have picked out the best possible radios we could find for you.

Skydroid

• SKYDROID T10 radio – Ever wanted live FPV footage from your drone whilst your flying? Not a problem with the new skydroid T10 radio. The radio comes with a 720p FPV camera and a receiver. All you have to do is install the skydroid app on your android device and away you go! This 10 channel radio offers 10km video telemetry and a whopping 20km data telemetry! With auto centred gimbals and a 3 position switch for flight modes, this radio is a must have! All flight settings can also be changed within the app so this makes your experience a lot easier.

Taranis

• FrSky Taranis Radio & Receiver combo – When it comes to possibilities the Frsky Taranis sets a new standard. FrSky is well known for their frequency hopping ACCST technology, that takes advantage of the 2.4GHz band, meaning excellent range and reliability. The Taranis mixes the power of the “OPEN TX”  software with an ergonomic case with 8 programmable switches, two twist knobs and two ‘slider’ pots and the quad bearing gimbals.
The Taranis uses Voice Alerts from an internal speaker. For things like; Count down timers, voltage warnings, landing gear down warnings etc. Anything can be programmed, you can even use your own voice. The best feature of the Taranis is its full telemetry capability, as well as RSSI signal strength feedback, there are 3 different programmable failsafe modes and receiver lock.

Jumper T12

•  The T16’s ‘little brother’, this radio only has a 1.7″ LCD display and is smaller in size than the T16. It still has full on screen data telemetry with 12 channels. Works on 4 AA batteries, very lightweight and the 4 in 1 module gives you access to almost all receivers. You honestly can not ask for a better radio at that cost. It packs all of the same technical features as the T16.

Radiomaster TX16S

•  (Diagram shown) – In our professional opinion, the TX16S is our go to radio. With live telemetry displayed beautifully on the 4.3″ coloured display, scroll wheel navigation system, 6 available flight mode options and the 4 in 1 module making it compatible with almost all receivers, this radio is a must have. Don’t let its low price fool you! The TX16S offers all of the features of the Taranis + many more. Making it an exceptional ‘bang for your buck’.

The Telemetry

Telemetry is what you use to send and receive data between your drone and your ground station. Adding telemetry to your drone is very useful, but is not required. There are plenty options out there however again we have managed to narrow it down to what suited our professional needs. The 2 options we have for you are WiFi or Sik radio. The diagram describes some of the differences between the 2. Which do you want on your new DS450 drone?
