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 possibility that enables 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 industrial or industrial payload to be mounted and flown. The X55 may be run autonomously, with missions that may be programmed by way of waypoints and industry-standard floor management stations.

For simple integration with a wide range of payloads, the X55 gives an adjunct energy port, which may 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 may be transported with ease, by utilizing 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 flexibility to plan missions and automate flights, along with providing a variety of as much as 12 miles (20 km) in perfect circumstances. Different industrial controllers are additionally simply supported and may 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 function, which then gives centimeter-level accuracy and a lot better efficiency in position-holding (loiter) modes. An non-compulsory terrain-following rangefinder is accessible, which may help 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 may be built-in, permitting excessive definition dwell video feed, straight on the bottom station or controller.

The primary items will probably be transport 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.
