• Spares and accessories
Other models and configurations are available and may be adapted to each specific project.



We are not only drone manufacturers ...we can integrate for you a complete solution, including
many optional equipment like:
• Various camera gimbals or any customized mount, like the one for the YellowScan LIDAR, or for
any other specific sensor upon request
• Retractable landing gear
• Bluetooth connection (for tablet, smartphone,...)
• Follow-me kit
• Georeferencing & 3D modeling softwares: Smart3DCapture® Advanced Edition or Pix4DMapper
• Sensors: photo and/or video cameras, infrared thermal cameras, hyperspectral cameras, Ultralight
standalone lidar system for aerial laser scanning



Technical specifications of the OnyxStar FOX-C8HD:
• Frame diameter: 960 mm / Distance from motor to motor: 632 mm
• Net weight: 2980 g (without batteries and payload)
• Maximum recommended payload: 7 kg
• Range:
◦ Flight radius = depends on the used transmitter/receiver used and local regulations.
◦ Radius for WayPoint Flights / Follow-Me = Basic version 1000m Radius (more available,
depending on local regulation).
• Altitude control: up to 5000m AMSL
• Temperature range of use: -5°C to +35°C (+23F to +95F). Batteries lose power quicker in cold
weather. The flight time can be reduced as a result.
• Flight time: (see graph below)
