This is Avion GAIA 160 Elite hybrid drone upgrade version, in which we update the fuel tank to 7L and the fuselage is stronger. The take-off weight of this hybrid drone is only 13.5kg with no payload. GAIA 160 Elite has an onboard 2000w generator that offers plenty of power to the six very high-efficiency motors to ensure a long flight time. The flight time is 4.5 hours (19.5kg take-off weight).
This is GAIA 160 Elite hybrid drone upgrade version, in which we update the fuel tank to 7L and the fuselage is stronger. The take-off weight of this hybrid drone is only 13.5kg with no payload. The high strength and high performance make the drone adaptive to extreme weather conditions, e.g 17m/s wind, -40℃ low temperature, +40℃ high temperature, heavy rain, fog, etc. The closed fuselage structure protects GAIA 160 Elite from the rain and dust, and also protect other load equipment like flight control and battery.
GAIA 160 Elite hexacopter is equipped with a high-efficiency power system, including T-MOTOR U8 Lite KV85 motor, Supreme 2985 propeller, and T-MOTOR Flame 60A ESC. By using the new supreme 2985 propeller the efficiency is increased by 5%. The power system ensures a large loading capacity and very stable flight performance. Gaia 160 Elite has good power redundancy, it can still fly or land in case one propeller or motor is gone.
The highlight of GAIA 160 Elite is the gasoline-electric hybrid power system. GAIA 160 Elite has an onboard 2000w generator that offers plenty of power to the six very high-efficiency motors to ensure a long flight time. The flight time is 4.5 hours (19.5kg take-off weight). 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 160 Elite hybrid drone is also installed with redundancy flight controllers, three GPS and a full range of optional equipment like RTK GPS, 20km datalink, parachute, secondary radio control, and more to make this drone very reliable and very safe.
A longer flight time coupled with good stability and high performance of GAIA 160 Elite opens a wide range of new commercial possibilities for businesses such as inspection of offshore platforms, search and rescue, power line inspection and survey etc.
Note: The GAIA 160 Elite will be shipped about 15 days later after the order is made.
