Product Description

USD525 - on sale USD399 - Vampire H has the lifting power of 6 motors for Sony Nex style cams, but with unique clear view forward (no props) and low profile flat hex for travel - for PARIS v5r3 with iOSD or Wookong -
Price has been altered downward to reflect the options for either ; a "stills" servo gimbal ; or a GoPro4 on our new brushless video gimbal -  our unique fully protected-GoPro brushless gimbal must be purchased separatley now. Excludes gimbal - Excludes 8-Balls (see below). Excludes PARIS v5r3 autopilot - these can be added to cart separately.  In the 1st Video (right)  you can see the indy filmMaker greggsy2000 using his fully enclosed and protected GoPro in a high risk environment like a rocky waterfall (yet his goPro4 is safe inside the GoPro clear housing) - he uses the gimbal tilt function @ 2:14 to tilt/look vertically down at the waterfall, as he flies over the lip of the falls.

the Carbon Vampire SCARAB is a large stable 700mm Hexii for Aerial Photography - it is much bigger than a 450mm yet still easy to put in the back seat of the car becuase the camer ais NOT on the both like others.  Scarab kits require screw-driver drone assembly skills - has the Has the flight characteristic of a Quad - yet is smooth and light, thanks to a super strong CENTRAL CORE - with 3 decks it has room for sensors - can carry an APSC sized "stills" camera like a Sony Nex - PARIS Sirius™ can be mounted on the mid-TOP-DECK - slender 12/10mm double thickness booms & light weight mounts have been designed to reduce airflow drag being aerodynamically clean and efficient with low drag under the propeller wash zone. Scarab Vampire is set up as an H configuration where the side motors are NOT used for yaw - their function is to provide lift near the centre.  If you choose to run a WookongM do not config as Hex - you must use a custom motor-mix - for PARIS Sirius™ we have written our own custom mix called H.  The booms can be rotated/offset by small 3-5° tilt increments to provide positive-offset-thrust lines rather than the poor yaw control associated with rectangular or flat boom frames. Can be upgraded to Octa at any time by adding 2 booms/motors/ESC and reprogramming the PARIS or WookongM - or a Octa 4X co-axial - or downgraded to a Quad - the Airframe has 8 boom mounting positions. 


 the 2nd video shows both 170° ultra wide for FPV view (what the pilot sees)  & GoPro HD set to 127° which cuts out all props in view










the 3rd video shot in San Fran filmMaker pilot CrazyJ Anderson puts his Vampire thru its paces with a Sony Nex5 Camera attached. Jason is a very skilled pilot who worked his way up from the small Reconn and the Scarab Tiikoptas 









Vampire is a fast, stable and smooth platform and easily handles a gimbal+GP3 for Video or an APSC camera like a Nex for "stills"
