Let's introduce the new iFlight Taurus X8 BNF - Heavy-duty gear designed to lift those big cams!

Engineered With Professionals for Professionals

This BNF is aimed towards carrying big payloads offering a soft-damped universal platform for DSLR or cinema cameras (Red Komodo, Zcam, BMPCC, etc). Featuring DJI's FPV HD transmission system with a redundant ESC and motor setup for maximum performance and an additional safety factor. Even in case of an overload or failure, one remaining ESC and 4 motors will be able to carry your expensive camera back to you. In case you get troubles with signal interference, radio signal loss or complete FPV transmission fail the GPS rescue feature will automatically take over control, climb to max flight altitude, and descent towards your liftoff location until the signal transmission is regained (no automated landing). The integrated TPU landing gear provides sufficient height for most terrain and offers some protection on harder landings.

2KG Maximum Payload

Designed for a variety of top-mounted cameras and the ability to fine-adjust the stable mount for a perfectly balanced CG (Center of Gravity). The underslung battery acts as a power source as well as a counterweight to strategically slide the weight more front or back to counter camera lenses of different weights or lengths. The adjustable CNC aluminum mount offers angles from 5 to 35 degrees and can be safely secured for reproducible outcomes. No jello, no jitter, no problem; Our silicon-ball dampened carbon camera base is decoupled from the rest of the frame to reduce the amount of vibration generated by motors and propellers. For the perfect cinematic shot we recommend and additional software stabilization in the post or a hardware module (for example SteadXP).

The estimated flight time with a 6S 4500mAh battery and attached cinema camera is about 4-6min, depending on speed and wind conditions!

Note: Action Cameras are not included.

No Air Shipping

Please note that shipping regulations have recently changed for batteries. We are no longer able to ship lithium polymer batteries via any Air shipping method. This includes all international destinations outside the USA. In the USA, you will only be presented with ground-based shipping options if your order contains a lipo battery. If you need to receive your order quickly and would like to ship with one-day or two-day shipping options, consider splitting your order up into an order of only batteries (shipping ground) and everything else.

Due to IATA shipping regulations, batteries shipping AIR must have a charge of less than 30%. A lithium polymer battery which stays in this state for long periods of time will become damaged. For this reason, GetFPV does not ship batteries using Air shipping.

If you want to ship batteries via air shipping, you can set up an account through our freight forwarding partner MyUS.com. Follow instructions on their website to learn more.
