I just bought a Quad RTF from Rotor Concept at the iHobby show in Chicago. I won't get it until sometime in November. Hopefully others will buy one and share their experience here. The RTF comes with a camera mount, LED lights, two lippo batteries, 2.4 radio, metal carry case, among other things.
Rotor Conceptβs high performance quadcopter (HPQ1) comes fully assembled and 100% ready to fly (RTF),
HPQ1 is controlled by a 6 channel digital radio/receiver using the latest code pairing, for anti-interference &
fail safe, 2.4GHZ digital spread spectrum frequency. Other than flying for enjoyment, HPQ1 can perform
some real life applications for both commercial and industrial through various optional live streaming video
and on-board digital video recording HD camera systems. Features the capability to carry a maximum payload
of up to 12 ounces with standard blades or up to 1.2 pound using optional high performance blades. HPQ1βs
flight control board is intergrated with advanced sensors such as auto barometer, accelerometer, magnetometer,
3-axis gyro and inertia based (6DOF IMU) self stabilization system. Also comes as standard is the signal loss
and the low battery flight warning system which allow the HPQ1 to perform gradual auto self-landing, Fly
up to 20 minutes with the included lithium-polymer battery and with 4 brushless motors. Maximum flight
altitude up to 2,000 feet. Maximum flight radius up to 1 mile. HPQ1 can pair with any 4 channel radio as well.
Real estate, rooftop inspection, private investigation, law enforcement, sporting events, etc.,
Built in safety features
1) Loss of RC signal
a. In case of RC signal not being detected during flight, the aircraft will enter the
security protection mode (SPM)
b. In SPM, the aircraft will emit a long βb-e-e-e-e-pβ tone intermittently.
c. The aircraft will not fly until an RC signal is received from the controller.
2) Start-up throttle protection
a. During power up, if your radio throttle stick is not in the lowest position (zero
throttle), The SPM will be activated.
b. In this state, the aircraft will not respond to any command until the throttle stick
is placed in the lowest position.
3. In-flight Protection during RC signal loss
a. If RC signal is lost or interrupted while in flight, the aircraft will immediately self
land and an intermittent beep tone will also be emitted.
b. When RC signal is regained, thsi protection will be deactivated and the aircraft
can continue flying
4. Low battery protection
a. Upon detecting low battery, the aircraft will beeb intermittently while still flying.
b. Please land as soon as possible and replace battery.
c. If this warning is ignored, the aircraft wll slowly power down and self land. You
still have flight control during this time, but not throttle control.
d. Default is 3.2 volts per LiPo cell.
